Kate’s Bio

I've been working with people who are elderly since 06', currently in nursing homes in therapeutic recreation. One of my favorite authors is Shel Silverstein, he wrote a poem about a little boy and the little old man...how similiar their lives can be.  How we sometimes pass them bye or ignore their thoughts and ideas, moving too quickly and are in too much of a hurry to stop an listen to the gifts they have to offer.  I stop, listen.  I am patient, reliable and compassionate.  I enjoy playing cards and reading books, or listening to music.  I had an amazing two year friendship with a woman with whom I volunteered; she was 93 when she passed.  I cherish ever minute we spent together.
