I met Kim last August 2019 when she was sent to care for my mother who was no longer able to live independently. Kim has returned every month since then, as she is a firm favourite with our family. Kim is reliable, capable, honest, sympathetic and has a great sense of humour. Nothing seems to phase her as she is an intelligent, hardworking and independent woman. My mom who is 97years old is extremely fond of Kim as she was the first carer sent in to ease her into a new way of life – Kim was instrumental in opening up possibilities to a system that has proved invaluable to her safety and well-being
My mother was diagnosed with mild Parkinson’s over 15 years ago but a serious fall and injury to her left shoulder accelerated the symptoms of the disease. Kim was my mother’s first carer and was called in to set up the relevant systems and care plan to help with her daily routine. Kim was extremely warm, caring and patient as well as being suitably professional. She has a great sense of humour, alleviates the anxiety in the home, and offers emotional support to my mom at this transitional point in her life. My mother is very fond of Kim as she has become more than just a carer – she is a mentor and a friend.
Kim cared for my father during the last months of his life and provided the most wonderful presence and support for him. She has an amazing capacity to be both upbeat and energising at the same time as practical and present. I can recommend her as an excellent choice of coach for other caregivers or those working with end of life issues.
Kim helped me help myself in my darkest hour – I was drowning running a small business, caring for an elderly parent, looking after a houshold of dogs and young adults and hating life. Breaking old habits, living in the present, embracing a collective concionsess, re-establishing my physical, mental and spiritual health, learning to chase my passions, unleashing internal creativity, practisng gratitude, finding a sense of fulfillment – all these things came right. Not overnight of course but with Kim’s guidance, insight and gentle way of communicating things I’m now embracing life. I still have my moments but also the personal tools to get back on track quickly. Can’t recommend enough and it’s a privelage to know her.
Kim offered invaluable help to me when I was at a difficult placement. She walked me through a process of healing that enabled me to change the way I looked at things. Under her guidance, I managed to see my placement through to the end with confidence, ease and a sense of achievement. From physical to emotional support Kim was available to offer a safe space for me to talk, to vent, to laugh. We have since become good friends through this journey and I will forever be grateful for her unwavering counsel and allowing me to open up and share my concerns on a daily basis
Much appreciation and love
