Elizabeth (Liz) K
Liz has been a caregiver with Private Home Care since 2014, working as a live-in and hourly caregiver. As a home care professional, Liz believes that aging should not be an end. Instead, people should be able to continue enjoying new opportunities and experiences and finding joy in life, especially at an advanced age. That's why Liz is committed to helping the people she works with to be able to enjoy their lives and have things to look forward to.
One of Liz's most memorable experiences as a caregiver was working with a client who had dementia. She had the opportunity to live-in with the client and provide around-the-clock care, and she loved the opportunity to do art projects and spend time joking and laughing together. Liz's caregiving approach is all about helping her clients live their lives at home, in their own familiar environment, and she thinks PHC is a great place to work because it is a company that truly cares about its clients and is dedicated to helping them live as full a life as possible.
In addition to her caregiving duties, Liz has also used her skills and compassion to inspire her creative pursuits. While working with a client who had dementia, Liz was inspired to write a short book about a dog as a fun activity for both the client and for herself. The project ended up being a rewarding experience for both of them, and it's just one example of how Liz's work as a caregiver has inspired her to use her skills and talents in new and meaningful ways.
“For six years, my mother received around-the-clock care until she passed away. During this time, Liz was one of her caregivers and developed a close relationship with her, becoming more like a "girlfriend" than a caregiver. Liz spent countless hours with my mother, not just providing care, but also having fun and creating meaningful experiences. I know that this made a significant difference in my mother's life, but it also brought me great comfort and peace of mind knowing that she was being well cared for and happy.”
