The Team at Karing Hearts Lends Crucial At-Home Care

Sometimes in life, situations can arise that warrant a little extra attention and a great measure of benevolence.

When those moments happen, it is a source of comfort to know that there are folks standing at the ready to help navigate the challenges.

That is what the team members at Karing Hearts set out to accomplish every day for the clients they’ve grown to love like their own families. The dedicated and skilled team of caretakers pledges to give their all to those who need them. That reputation is making Karing Hearts one of the premier resources in the region for folks seeking specialized health and wellness services.

Owner Kim Yoder founded Karing Hearts in 2021, as the culmination of a lifelong mission to launch her own business. She was well-prepared to forge ahead in a full-time career of caregiving, as she’s been working professionally in this field for more than 20 years. She also harbors a personal connection to the cause, as she draws on her experience providing care to her grandparents.

Yoder’s daughter, Kylie Yoder, shares in that heritage of health care, and works alongside her mother in Karing Hearts, generally handling human-resources aspects of the business.

With an extensive staff of 80 caregivers and six office support employees to round out the Karing Hearts team, the Yoder women are more than sufficiently prepared to respond to requests for assistance seven days a week, 24 hours a day. Their response time is expeditious, often being on-site within a few hours at most.

What the services entail, meanwhile, is as unique as the individuals themselves, Yoder says. A visit from Karing Hearts could involve assisting with household tasks, lending an extra set of hands for personal-care needs, doing some shopping, or providing companionship. Karing Hearts also works closely with local hospice providers to handle a range of end-of-life issues. There is always someone on call, Yoder assures, and staff members are skilled and trained regularly on how to work with various types of medical equipment.

One of the many hallmarks of Karing Hearts is nurturing folks toward a dignified, independent lifestyle, and allowing them to stay in the comforts of their home for as long as possible.

“I feel like when we put our elders in a facility, they can feel like they’re abandoned,” Kim says. “I’m very passionate about elderly people, and I’m passionate about keeping people in their homes and out of nursing care.”

Kylie reflects on her mother’s love for her career, saying she’s “grown up hearing her talk to clients and their families,” which allowed her to be raised in the same environment of love and empathy.

“I feel like the title speaks for itself,” Kim says, regarding what sets Karing Hearts in a class of its own. “We have compassionate caregivers that are doing what they’re called to do. They go above and beyond every day. When you do what you love, you’ll never have to work a day in your life.”

The team will be working this year to further establish their newer South Bend location, and the business is fully licensed, bonded and insured. They have also maintained a favorable standing with the Better Business Bureau. Their primary service areas include St. Joseph, Elkhart, Kosciusko and LaGrange counties, along with southern Michigan.
