My name is Carol Moody. My husband and I have a combined family of 8 children, 4 grandchildren, 2 dogs and a cat. We moved to Searsport in November of 2013.
I became a Certified Nursing assistant in 1999 and have loved working as a professional caregiver ever since. My first job as a caregiver in a professional capacity was in a small community hospital in Rumford, Maine. As my family grew, I needed a more flexible schedule. I worked at a per diem capacity at the hospital and explored other caregiving opportunities. I have since, experienced providing client care in Nursing Home, Hospice Care and home settings. I am a 6th year member of the Hospice Volunteers of Waldo County. The HVWC provides amazing services in our community, not only for the dying, but also for the bereaved and for the youth in our community that have suffered loss.
I have been an active part of my community. Over the past 20 years I have cheered my kids on through music, starting a band, baseball, softball, basketball, floor hockey, Track, Soccer, Mixed Martial Arts, Skills USA, ballet, jazz and tap dancing, I have coached Area Youth Cheerleading, helped raise funds annually for youth wrestling, Area youth football, FIRST Lego League in 3 school districts and served as a mentor with a FIRST Robotics competition team for 5 years. I also enjoy being involved with community service projects with my family. We have had fun Walking For A Cure for Alzheimer's Disease, helping the Waldo County Wood Shed, collecting peanut butter and jelly for Bangor Savings Bank/Food Cupboard, Earth Day Cleanup, and many other events.
A few weeks after I moved to Searsport, a mutual friend that Kathy Strout and I share, told me about Kathy’s new, up and coming business for caregivers. I gave Kathy a call, I met with her Ellen and Sue and before I knew it, I was on the caregiving team in January of 2014. In January of 2018 I joined the Scheduling Coordinator team. Caregiving is my passion in whatever role I am in. I am proud to be a part of a team that provides personalized care with dignity and quality assurance to clients in our community.
