About Katherine

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

    I became a Caregiver because I feel like I am making a difference in someone's life. A smile, touch or words of encouragement can add so much to the life of a sick or elderly person. This kind of connection makes my job more than what it is and that gives me personal satisfaction. I like being a Caregiver because I enjoy meeting new people, and no 2 days are the same. I'm proud of graduating from CNA school at the top of my class and passing the state CNA class on the first try. I am married with 3 very active teenage boys. I enjoy being an active mom in their lives. Originally I am from Naperville, Illinois. My husband's company transferred to Fort Worth in 2008. I have had various other positions. Late summer last year was when I started my studes for my CNA career.
