About Karen

I love spending time with the elderly, doing things they like to keep them happy and busy as much as they can and keep their mind strong as well as their body, I treat them like they are my own family. and love to learn the history of their life and keep them active as much as they can tolerate physically.I try to keep them strong and independent and to keep them from going to a nursing home where they just sit and no one gives them the personal care and attention that they deserve. I do all to please them and the family so they fell they still have a reason for life to live..after all they are a person not a number.... thanks Karen.
