The Keen Team
MEET DR. ROBINSON
After his back surgery, Dr. Robinson was not too eager to hire a caregiver. As a fiercely independent man and his two adult children hundreds of miles away, he didn’t have their daily assistance to help him cook, bathe and move about his Park Estates suburban home. He called Keen as a desperate move to help him manage his day while he recovered from surgery and gained his strength back.
When Linda noticed her neighbor’s had what looked like a nurse coming and going from their East Long Beach home at the end of the cul-de-sac, she got curious.

It wasn’t a year later that Linda needed similar support for her live-in mother-in-law. Now Keen caregivers are a loving part of her family who has helped her husband’s parents as well as her own.
