About Karen

I have been working with the elderly for over 20 years. With time comes experience and the understanding of how much care and compassion the elderly needs on the regular basis. I have worked with nearly all forms of disabilities that some elderly people goes through. From mental disorders, such as dementia clients to physical disorders, such as Huntington disease clients. I don't want anybody in this world to suffer but in particular, to me, the elderly are the ones who needs the most care, companionship, and assistance for the rest of their lives. I find joy and comfort in knowing that I can help senior citizens in anyway I can. I love being an aide for senior citizens. My work and dedication show's it.
