Hi, I'm Karen. I am a mature, single woman living in south coastal Carlsbad. I am looking forward to hearing from families that are seeking help. I enjoy helping others, especially elders for whom I have the utmost respect, sympathy and genuinely care about. They are treasure troves of knowledge and full of wonderful life experiences. I meet new and wonderful families and I have become friends with all of my clients. I specialize in working with ambulatory victims of some form or stage of dementia/Alzheimer's or other mental illness. Also, I make a good companion for those who can no longer drive. And since I am an animal lover, I will readily care for any kind of pets as well. Again, I look forward to hearing from you to discuss how my background and experience can assist your loved ones and family. Most sincerely, Karen PS: my availability and rates are flexible.
