Assisting older adults and their families in developing the safest care plan and the most desirable living situation that will address their physical, emotional and social well-being.

A Licensed Master’s Social Worker with over 25 years of experience, Karen B. is an advocate for older adults and their families.

Following in the footsteps of her mother and three aunts who were nurses, Karen knew early on she would enter the helping profession. However Karen sought to provide care in a way that would not only improve the lives of her patients but their families as well. Karen began her career in hospitals helping patients and their families adjust to illnesses, adapt and cope with physical, mental and emotional challenges, and coordinate plans for aftercare. In the last nine years, Karen has continued to provide counseling addressing such needs as downsizing, role changes, anxiety, depression and lifecycle changes.

A respected member of Aging Life Care Association, Karen continues to consult and provide her patients and their families’ assistance navigating the myriad of services available in health care. She considers it a privilege to assist individuals and families, by helping them rediscover their strengths, follow their passions in order to age vibrantly in a safe and secure setting. With her vast experience in homes, outpatient settings and in healthcare settings including hospitals, nursing homes and rehabilitation clinics, Karen has built a professional network as a highly skilled consultant, and expert in her field.

Karen has her Master’s in Social Work from Michigan State University, a Certificate in Aging from Boston University Institute for Geriatric Social Work, a Bachelor in Psychology from Oakland University and is a Certified Aging Life Care Specialist.
