Hello! My name is Kirksey and I am a senior in college. I am graduating this coming year and am majoring in Political Science and Spanish. I have minors in other fields as well. My passion for working with seniors really started with being raised by my great grandmother and grandma. I grew up to then volunteer consistently at local nursing homes. When I was 16, I began to regularly volunteer for my local hospice program where I would visit and talk with patients at those difficult stages of life. When my great grandmother began struggling with dementia, I provided hands on care and learned Basic Life Support, First Aid, CPR, mobility and bathing assistance, medication management and other important tasks. After she passed, I began working at a local assisted living in the memory care unit where I provided intensive hands on care to residents during an incredibly difficult stage. While I enjoy hands on care, I can also provide companionship and errands as I enjoy simply talking as well.
