Vice President

Carrie first learned of Senior Home Companions through Senior Home Companions president, David Morgan. She fondly remembers seeing caregivers bringing David’s grandfather to their family business so he could still be a part of the company, despite his deteriorating health.

Joining Senior Home Companions in 2013 and after years of managing a home health company in Indiana, Carrie was all too familiar with the physical and emotional toll that the aging process takes on both the individual and those who love and care for them.  Her goal through Senior Home Companions is to raise awareness that compassionate individuals are available when everyday life gets just beyond reach for our aging population.
