About Kathy

I have been caregiving from age 14 when my mother got Lymphoma non-hoskins and it was just the two of his. This lead me into the field of medical social work where I received my degree. I also had my father live with me for two years 2009-2011 when he couldn't live alone anymore due to Dementia.

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.

My parents were both very involved with volunteering. I learned early on the benefits and rewards of being caring, kind and helping others. My mom lived in her own home until she recently passed away at 98. We had various caregivers for her over the years, and while some were wonderful, there were many more that were not. I treat people the way I would treat my own mother...with respect and dignity. I try to find what brings joy to whomever I'm caring for. Do they like to sing or be sung to, play cards, board games, go for a walk? I can help clean, make meals, get groceries, transport to and from Dr visits and hair appointments or just give a full time caregiver a break. I helped my mom with bathing, grooming and dressing and am willing to learn how you do things. I have a heart of gold when it comes to people who need a little extra help, especially the elderly. I'm reliable, patient, trustworthy and will always show up with a smile. I hope to hear from you....Denise Will also do evening checks after 5:30 p.m. I can make sure your loved one has eaten dinner or I can make them dinner, taken medications, help them get ready for bed, take dog out, make sure doors are secured or just visit. Will stay a min of 3 hours @ $22 an hour. Will help with transportation to and from the hospital and after care from surgery/plastic surgery. I will gladly give you references upon request. P.S. - I should also mention that I'm allergic to cats....sorry!
