About Karen

I am experienced on both sides of the Home Healthcare perspective. I was in charge of my mother-in-law's health care which previously consisted of all aspects of the scheduling and personal care needed daily. I am a very loving Caregiver just wanting to help people in their daily living needs. I most recently worked privately for the past 9 months but, I have 5 years experience in the medicaI field (2 of 5 with dementia). I find it very satisfying knowing I have touched another life in a positive and caring way; it is important people have been positively affected just knowing me. My most recent position was private duty with a well known, prominent 90 yr old gentleman. I have worked for agencies and with clients privately. My experience does not limit me to either gender. I was ill and in need of the same type of care in 2011; I have first hand knowledge of how these clients feel and the needs they have. As my health improvedand I became better, it made me more passionate about helping others that are in need of assistance due to their illnesses. I am available to start immediately

I am experienced on both sides of the Home Healthcare perspective. I was in charge of my mother-in-law's health care which previously consisted of all aspects of the scheduling and personal care needed daily. I also am a very loving Caregiver just wanting to help people in their daily living needs. I have 6 years experience. I am very satisfied in knowing I have touched another life in a positive and caring way. It is important they have been positively affected just knowing me. I have been through health issues of my own; giving me a second chance on life. This gives me first hand knowledge of what the people needing assistance medically go through on a daily basis. Since then, I have worked with a number of different clients, all of which had different needs. I am looking for change because of the need for daytime hours.
