About Karrie

I am a 46 year old single independent woman. I wasn't lucky enough to have children so I have dedicated my life to helping those who cannot help themselves. My grandmother said I was an angel and that is why I'm so good at what I do. I am very friendly and I can always make your loved one laugh. I am always smiling and have a heart of gold. I am very loyal and dedicated. I too have had both my grandfathers serve our country and my uncle still works for the Marines. I would be honored to help any family and help make their lives easier.

The first thing about being a great caregiver is to listen to your client and to be patient at the same time your patience will always be comfortable talking to you I became a caregiver for my grandmother that open the door for taking care of others one of the things that I enjoy most about being a caregiver is how exciting your client feels when you come to see them it's almost like two friends having tea and challah bread one of the things that I achieve in the work that I do is how I'm able to communicate with my clients even if it is a hospice care I take great pride in what I do and I always remember getting sick and aging can happen to anyone you're not above it so you treat people with respect and hope for the same when it is your turn.
