Each month our program directors choose from hundreds of Life Care Professionals (LCPs) to honor one amazing caregiver in each program who always lives the Kennedy Care values. This month, our Patriot Care LCP of the Month is Kylie Popps!
Get To Know Kylie
How long have you been with Patriot Care?
I started working with Patriot Care in October of last year. So ALMOST one year.
Why did you choose to join Patriot Care?
I chose Patriot Care because my husband served as an Active Duty Marine for 14 years and I just have an unexplainable, special place in my heart for our Veterans.
What is your proudest moment from your time with Patriot Care?
I don’t think I have a defining moment, because I leave my clients’ home after every shift feeling proud of the way we are able to take care of our Veterans.
What is your favorite part of being a caregiver for Veterans?
My favorite part of being a LCP is the relationships I have with my clients. We laugh and smile and I know that I’m making a difference in their day, and simultaneously, they’re making a difference in mine!!
What is your advice for other caregivers?
My advice: I know that what we do can be hard and difficult at times, maybe even a little stressful, but remind yourself to ENJOY every moment with your clients, because they will show you and teach you the humbleness that comes along the way.
What is a fun fact about you?
A fun fact about me – one of my first jobs ever was working as a Cast Member at Disneyland in Anaheim, CA!! So much fun!!
What do you enjoy doing outside of work?
Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my little family and going out on family adventures (hiking, four-wheeling, boating, swimming, fishing, kayaking, etc).
Thank you to Kylie and all of our LCPs for always going the extra mile with your care!
