About Kim

I have been a caregiver at an early age. My parents were dealing with illnesses when I was in elementary schooI. I learned about doctor visits, medication, proper dietary needs and how people need compassion in coping with changes in life brought about by illness or just aging. My dad use to call me "a regular lil' Florence Nightingale". In my work years I have pursued a very rewarding career in Aircraft Engineering. I loved the big birds but the one thing that I cared about more were the people in my pursuit. In my journey of life I have been given a gift.....compassion for others! I want to share that with others. My name is Kim

    Family
    When my dad was diagnosed with cancer, my mom and I too suffered with it. It required both of us to do shifts in caring for him. Meals, doctor visits, housekeeping, medication, comfort and companionship. In the late stages, Hospice stepped in. 4 weeks after his death and burial, my mother was involved in a fatal accident of my grandmother. The accident left her on life support for 2 months. After a total of 3 months the hospital released her into my care. I had to complete training before I could take her home. She had and open gut wound that required dressing twice daily. She was on her back for 6 months. I provided bathing, feeding, changing stomos, etc. I've seen first hand how people need people. I want to care for others.
