Karing By Karen Homecare was founded in 2022 by Karen, a home health occupational therapist of 17 years who saw the ongoing desire for clients to age in place in their own homes. Seeing clients progress and become independent again with activities of daily living is always a plus. Sometimes our clients need more help caring for themselves than they anticipated and facing that reality is usually difficult for not only the client but the family. Our family moved to Southwest Florida in 2021, we’re finding that most of our clients don’t have family in the immediate area. I saw the need for more private caregiving services in a gracefully aging booming population of Southwest Florida.
Another service that seems to be in need is having a dependable handyman service. My husband, George, who owned his own general contracting business in the city and suburbs of Philadelphia for 30 years, has obtained a maintenance license that allows him to install grab bars throughout private homes. During your free home assessment, let’s see if you could benefit from permanent grab bars either around your toilet or in your shower. In 2017, George and I earned our certificate for aging-in-place specialist (CAPS). In Pennsylvania, we helped clients by completing home modifications to make everyday activities easier and safer to perform.
