Meet Katherine

Hello! I am very interested in discussing your need for a caregiver. In 2014, I lost my beloved father. During his last year, I spent "Dad Fridays" with him. He had mild dementia and he had to retire from teaching at Harcum due to memory loss. Basically, we took walks, went to bookstores, discussed all kinds of things, had lunch, transported him to his appointments and just hung out! It seems that I have always had a heart for seniors and impaired folks. My 23-year-old son has Asperger's, so I am quite familiar with the challenges and rewards of advocating and care-giving. For several years, I took care of an elderly women who was in a wheel chair. I visited with her, dressed her leg wound, ran errands, shopped and transported her to her door appointments. Plus, we enjoyed conversing. I am upbeat, positive, respectful, reliable and looking for a care-giving job with someone who also needs companionship! Native to Merion Golf Manor. Excellent references.

Katherine is a wonderfully caring and intelligent person who has exceptional organizational abilities and excellent communication skills. Whether caring for her own son's special needs or her father who had Alzheimer's, Katherine has always been resourceful, full of energy, and naturally in tune with the needs of the person for whom she is caring. She is compassionate, smart, and a most honest, ethical person. I recommend her highly.
