About Karen

Hello, I have been a caregiver for 20+ years. I enjoy working with people and helping them to make their lives easier. I'm compassionate, patient, dedicated, reliable and take pride in my position. I am certified in CPR and First Aid, as well as have knowledge taking vitals (pulse, temperature, respiration and blood pressure). I have worked in Nursing facilities, Assisted Living and Home Care and I would have to say that my favorite part of the job is listening to their life stories and learning from them. I'm a good choice!

    I have worked with seniors since I was 9 years old volunteering at senior living care homes. I have always had a special place in my heart for elderly. As I became an adult I knew I wanted to keep working with them. I have worked with several families in Reno for the last 16 years. I am patient, kind, and will give them the dignity they deserve. I have experience helping with medication reminders and organization, bathing, meal prep, light housekeeping, running errands, and companionship.

    I believe I'm a great caregiver because I enjoy taking care of others,being by their side when their family is unable to. The most important thing that attracted me to becoming a caregiver is my grandmother, I took care of her for about 3 years before she passed on from dementia.
