About Karen

Every person deserves the love and respect of their family and those who care for them. I try to be that person. Each of us may one day be in the position of needing additional assistance navigating life. I find it personally fulfilling to be of real help to others, particularly seniors. It might be as simple as remembering that someone likes a real handkerchief for their purse or a breath mint before seeing their doctor. It might also be knowing that medications have been adjusted and that their may have possible food interactions. I approach each person as unique, and deserving of the very best that I can give them. My current clients are all over the age of 90, and I treasure every moment with them.

I am a compassionate person who enjoy helping others. I'm a registered CNA with CPR/BLS and EKG training, in Texas. I have over 20 years of experience with the elderly and disabled. After many years of working in a Hospital Business Office by day and caring for a family member at night, I decided to become a Caregiver to others. I know first hand what it is like to need assistance with the care of a loved one and realizing that you can't be there 24 hrs a day. The uncertainty of trusting someone else to do it for you can cause anxiety. I promise you that I will treat your loved one with kindness, dignity and respect, the same way I would like my loved ones to be treated. This isn't just a job for me, it is a ministry and a passion.

Hi, I'm a very trustworthy, loving, dependable person! I have 10 years of caregiving experience. I have been doing all this caregiving through volunteering at my church. I decided I loved taking care of people so much I wanted go to work at what I love doing! I have done most everything as a caregiver, i.e., light house work, meal preparation, grocery shopping, rides to dr. Appointments, run errands, companionship, and love the job!!! I treat my care partners like one of my family members and would love to take care of your family member!
