Hi, my name is Karen.. I have over 28 years experience in the care giving field. I was a registered nurse for 11 years till I started my family of 5 amazing children. I have experience with - Grooming - Bathing / Dressing - Transfers - Preparing Meals - Taking vital signs - Dispensing Medications - Companion Care - Recreational activities, - Running Errands - Transportation to doctor appointments - Housekeeping - Performed first aid and initiated emergency response procedures.
In addition to raising my 5 children, I had also helped take care of my dad at home who was terminally ill with cancer. Later in life, my mother suffered several strokes with the last one being massive which left her completely bedridden and unable to care for herself. My siblings and myself were her sole caretakers.
I have always had a strong desire to help and work with people. It's a great feeling knowing you have made someones day or life a little bit better or a little bit easier.
