Karen’s Bio

I am a pediatric physical therapist and I work with children from birth to 3 years in their homes providing early intervention. It is very physically and emotionally demanding and I now only do that part-time. From Aug. 2018-Sept 2019, I also worked part-time providing companion care for an 87 year old woman with dementia while her family was working. I provided transportation to/from an adult daycare and assisted with dressing, meals, putting in hearing aids and eye drops, medication reminders, etc. I really enjoyed working with her and we had a lot of good laughs. In Sept, I needed to quit that job to care for my husband who was having major health issues. He is better and I am now looking for part-time work again.
I am CPR and first aid certified (renewed 1/2020). My criminal background check, FBI fingerprinting, and child abuse clearances were updated 1/2020.
