Cat Brings the Laughter… and Wisdom!

Hired Hands Caregiver Cat

Cat has been working for Hired Hands for 8 years.  Being a veteran caregiver, she frequently takes on some of our higher acuity and more challenging clients.  “I love to tell stories to make my clients laugh.  Laughter is such an effective way to redirect a client who is struggling with memory issues.”

“I was a Navy Corpsman where I received fantastic training.  Afterwards I worked for years as an RN in the prison system.  That experience was challenging. I worked under conditions that simply would not occur in a mainstream hospital setting.  I learned so much.”  Cat enjoys the opportunity to work one on one with her clients.  That is the big difference from her nursing days.

Cat is an avid gardener and loves eating the fruits of her labor.

“The best complement I’ve received from Hired Hands was once when I thought I should take a client to the hospital, I called the office and ended up speaking with Lynn Winter and she told me that she trusted me to use my good judgment for the client’s safety. That meant so much to me.”

Thank you, Cat!  Time and time again you have earned our trust in your wisdom.
