Kate has made it possible for my mother, in her late 80’s, to live independently in her own home. She visits weekly, providing support in a variety of ways: friendly conversation, phone calls, help with paper work, rides, shopping—whatever my mom could use some help with. She knows the community and knows just who to call to solve a problem.
My mom ends up feeling competent and independent—able to handle her affairs on her own (with some help from Kate), rather than turning everything over to her children to take care of.
Kate has taken a huge load off the minds of my sister and myself, who live out of state and have struggled to help from afar. She is a valuable partner for our family—who is on the scene, capable, and caring.
Thank you for all you do.
