"We found Karen's Board and Care four years ago and since arriving at the facility, my grandmother has not been hospitalized while in their care. Her medication is properly administered and the staff works diligently to ensure she ate and properly hydrated. The family appreciates the fact that there is a high ratio of caregivers to residents and my grandmother is in a comfortable and home-like environment where she is treated with a greater degree of dignity. I have great faith in the skill of Clarita and Marty, the board administrators. As a registered nurse, Clarita possesses a wealth of knowledge in the care of the elderly. I trust them to make decisions that are in the best interest of the families and have absolute faith in their abilities to manage her care in my absence.
