Karen’s Bio

I am a talented and light-hearted caregiver with over 10 years extensive experience in elderly care. I am well-versed in advanced care and safety techniques. I have long-term interest in bringing relief and quality of life for clients and their families. I am eager to work for a private household utilizing extensive qualifications and care giving skills for the well being of clients. I enjoy providing assistance to seniors and would like to continue to develop my care giving skills by providing one-on-one care as a professional caregiver. Since becoming certified in First Aid, CPR and various on the job training, I have cared for seniors with conditions or needs such as stroke, hip replacement, Alzheimer's disease, transfer assist, dementia patients, cancer patients, diabetes, hospice, COPD (knowledgeable with oxygen equipment), amputee, and cerebral palsy. Background check for the states of IL and MO have already been completed. Thank you for your interest.
