About Kim

I became a caregiver because I have compassion and care for the elderly. I was a caregiver for nearly 2 years, then I went back to school and took a course in Medical Front Office Administration, graduated 2013. I have worked the past few years in the Medical Office. At this time I am in need of a part-time job, assisting the elderly, as I have compassion for them, and more experience, since my mom now has Alzheimer's, dementia and congestive heart failure. I have experience with Alzheimer's, dementia, ambulatory, stroke victims, diabetic and other elderly patients. I have excellent interpersonal, communication skills, follow directions, very patient, kind and understanding, great companionship, personable, and devoted. I am not a CNA, my CPR needs to be updated; just let me know if you require my CPR to be updated before I start. I have not and will not pay for a background check until necessary, as I have experienced this site does not have very many people on it, so I need to make sure it's worthwhile.

Proud Carelinx Professional Private Caregiver- Diamond Level. I am COVID 19 Vaccinated: PFIZER Dates: 3/10/21 Lot# EN6205, 3/31/21 Lot# ER8733. I am your caregiver with a compassionate heart who has the ability to empathize and sympathize, who is kind in words and deed. 5 years of experience in a private home care setting. I raised 2 grown boys on my own. I know I am excellent at taking care of people so I pursue a Medical Assisting course from Collin Community College in Plano year 2012. During my volunteer work with St. Jude Catholic Church's Visitation Ministry, I realize the overwhelming need for senior caregivers. I love the fact that I could make a living "caring" for elders, especially those who suffer from Alzheimer's disease and those who couldn't simply take care of themselves. I am proud to be taking care of that special someone, and I am making a difference in their lives. They have taken care of a lot of people in their lifetime... they now deserve that SPECIAL CARE.

$15.00/hour · Irving, TX
My career as a caregiver began with taking care of both my parents. My father had cancer and my mother had dementia. I was working as well while taking care of my parents. After they passed away and in 2012 my job where I was working was outsourced, I decided I wanted to make a career of being a caregiver. I went to CTK Healthcare and Career Institute to obtain my CNA certification. Since 2013 to current I have worked privately and with agencies as a caregiver. My skills and duties are to perform light housekeeping, light meal preparations, assist with shower and dressing, medication reminders, assist with shopping for groceries and putting them away, assist with pet care, and companionship. I enjoy interacting with my clients and helping them have a safe, healthy , and clean environment to live in. I understand the challenges of caretaking as well as the stress of a loved one's health changes and needs changing from taking care of my parents. I find great joy in life being there for others and help make there day less stressful.
