Our Home & Family
We are Kyle and Caroline. We have three children, Lauren, Leah and Lucas.
Our family lives in a spacious, ranch-style home with everything we need on one level.
We have two living rooms, offering privacy and quiet space when we need it. Our large, open kitchen allows many people to gather at once — we love to be with our family. Our home could be easily modified to better meet the needs of someone who moves in with us. We plan to finish our basement this winter to offer an additional living space, two bedrooms and a second bathroom.
Our home is on 12 acres in the country, surrounded by corn fields, groves of trees and other natural barriers that exemplify the beauty of country living
The Reason We Open Our Home
We would love the opportunity to offer a new person the attention, positivity and care that we share with one another as a family.
We are very family-oriented and love to do things together in our free time. We prioritize eating supper together, and we try to show our care for one another by speaking positively, praising one another, and doing acts of service for one another on a daily basis.
A perfect day for us would be spent at the lake together: in the summer, we stay in our camper, and in the winter, we stay in our insulated fish house on a lake up north.
We’d spend our perfect day together fishing, swimming, playing games or doing crafts.
As a family, we are all responsible for maintaining the home and picking up after ourselves. This is often just another way we do things together. We enjoy our daily routines in a peaceful community and share trust with our neighbors.
We are happiest when we are spending time outdoors or spending time togther, and we love to be involved with our community and help others whenever possible. Our faith is very important to us and we apply that in our daily life by how we treat others.
Caroline’s parents opened their home to support others when she was growing up, and she loved it.
She has since earned a master’s degree in Health and Human Service Administration. She has worked in long-term care for many years as both a leader and providing direct care.
She will use this knowledge and experience to tap into a deeper understanding of supporting a person with disabilities and truly embracing person-centered care so they can be as independent as possible.
