I started working in '92 at an apartment complex for the elderly, handicapped and disabled. I have always had nothing but love and respect for my elders. I stopped working for the complex and started taking care of several of the residents. From then on it has been mostly word of mouth. I am very proud that all the patients I have cared for them and their family become an extension of my family. I have never been fired or quit a patient/family. They either pass or their family will put them in a home. I feel most of the time being a caregiver isn't a job, it's just going to see an elderly friend. Right now I am carin for a patient with Parkinson's, it was 5 days a week. His daughter retired from the school district to move in and take care of her parents. I am only working here on sat and sun now. I have gotten my last 3 patients off care.com. At this time I havnt found one that fits me so I decided to try a different route and found carelinx I hope I can be blessed soon with one of God's special people, an elderly person. I always listen and learn from each one of them. Feel free to call me at anytime, thank you, Katherine Huckaby-Jacobs
