About Caroline

I became a caregiver after taking care of my elderly father who eventually passed away. I love being able to assist those who are not able to care for themselves, and I love the satisfaction I get when they're feeling their best and looking their best. I'm very proud of my family. I have 2 living children (daughters) and one son who is deceased. I have 14 grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren.
