Who is Kimberli Parenteau?
Kimberli has been self-employed as a Personal Care Consultant and Health & Nutrition Educator for more than 15 years. She was the Primary Care Advocate for her grandmother for many years, and observed what can go really right and really wrong in the land of Continued Care, especially where the marginalized populations are involved.
Concurrent with those hands-on caregiving years, she serviced her communities for over 25 years with her background of providing specialized Personal Care for individuals in various household situations and income-level environments, such as while working for Merced College, CSU Stanislaus College, and the Merced Cemetery District.
Kimberli greatly enjoys teaching others best practices and personalized care approaches. She feels it is essential for everyone to attend Classes, Conferences, and Seminars in order to keep up with the many changes that take place in laws and policies among the various Local, State and Governmental agencies. She is actively sought out as an End-of-Life Trustee, Care Advocate, and Business Agent for both Financial and Physical Care needs and concerns.
These life lessons were a driving force for Kimberli to desire to change the status quo in the many facets of Personal Care. Following through on that commitment, she became a Licensed & Certified RCFE Administrator to help make a difference in the lives of others. She has been Blessed to improve the Quality of Care in the daily lives of many clients and their family members.
She loves helping people to make Good Choices during Care Challenges for themselves and others. She likes to say that “Proper Self-Care & Senior Care are her JAM!!”
