My first experience with senior care involved me being a companion for two women in their 90s, both with dementia. They both lived in a nursing home and I spent quality time with them chatting, shopping for them, running their errands, and tidying. Currently, I work with a sweet lady in her mid-eighties who has dementia. I cook her breakfast and lunch each day and I am her constant companion making sure she feels safe and cared for. I help her get showered and dressed in the morning and we go on outings on most days. I love what I do! I also live with my parents who are in their 70s and while they are very independent I clean, cook. and help with various projects around the house. for them and also help them with technology. It is an honor to take care of them.

Kara has been a huge blessing to us over the the last six months. She has watched out for mom every weekday since July. Mom will be moving out of our home this week, but when she comes back to visit, I hope Kara is available to assist! She has been an indispensable part of mom's care. We have had the peace of mind of being able to know mom is in good hands every day! Kara is trustworthy, kind, and a wonderful companion to mom. Kara has encouraged mom to keep trying to read, pick up her piano abilities once again, and in general to keep moving forward in life. Mom is not always compliant, but Kara has always been patient and kind. She's even proactively brought activities for mom to do and brought her out to the mall and other places to keep mom stimulated as much as possible. I can't imagine how much more difficult life would have been without Kara dependably coming every day. I highly recommend Kara to those who need help with an elderly parent. She's wonderful!
