Kathleen’s Bio

I have provided elder care for over twenty years both in my own home and at the homes of the elders. I am very good at what I do and attuned to the needs of those in my care. In today's world older ones are afforded little honor and respect, they are often viewed as a burden and treated with little dignity. This offends me. I feel deep empathy for those at this stage in their life and as their advocate keep in mind how I would wish to be treated. My training has come through experience in this field for many years and for a variety of people, as well as caring for my own family members.
