About Kareemah

Not only is nursing my career, but it's my passion. With almost 10 years of care giving experience, helping my clients back to good health and making a difference in their live is motivation for me to continue on this path. I am currently an LPN in school to become an RN with ambitions of one day soon opening a healthcare facility. I have home health experience as well as hospice experience. The last three years I have worked in a nursing home and I absolutely love seeing the smiles on the residents' face each morning/evening I arrive and leave. I assisted in taking care of my grandmother at home before she passed away and I am currently doing the same for my grandfather. With that being said, I find myself able to put myself in the position of my clients' family members and provide the support and comfort they may need as well.

    Throughout the years, it has been a blessing to work with families by helping them with their loved ones. One of the main reasons I continue to be a caregiver because I love seeing how God has put me in a position to work through me to care for others. I enjoy establishing relationships with my patients and their families and working together to provide the best care for their loved one. I have been doing this for over 10 years and every patient I had the honor of working with has been a blessing in their own way.

    My grandparents, as well as my great-grandparents, made a very strong impression on me. I enjoyed spending time with all of them in the summer. Goodness, kindness, and unconditional love from my sweet relatives taught me to be loving, caring, and considerate of my elders. After doing volunteer work at nursing homes, I really felt this was my special 'calling'. Now, I enjoy each and every day, learning from the elderly people that are in my care. Hope to hear from you soon!!
