Karen has been a health care professional for more than 25 years. Karen's caregiving journey began when her parents' house was destroyed with hurricane Sandy in 2012. Her parents - at that time 92 and 89 years old, had to find options to relocate quickly. Eventually, the family decided it was best that her parents go to assisted living. Throughout this process, Karen learned the ins and outs of how assisted living facilities work, as well as various things you have to keep in mind before and during your move to assisted living.
