Providing care to the caregiver
Karin Schirpke knows the challenges of both illness and caregiving. She faced her own COVID-19 diagnosis quarantined from her hospitalized husband and their six adult children. No one could provide her with the moral support she needed.
Her recovery was swiftly followed by a six-month stay at Kathy’s House, where Karin cared for her hospitalized husband as he battled COVID-19. Karin found Kathy’s House on the recommendation of her son.
Although Karin says caregivers are often neglected, she wanted people everywhere to know how much support and care she received at Kathy’s House.
