Here is what Karen’s clients are saying about her:
We want to tell how much we enjoyed your numerous presentations on Adults with Aging Parents. Our City employees were especially grateful for your fun approach. The topic was timely and valuable, and you resented the material in a manner the everyone could understand. It was thoughtful of you to allow our City employees to ask questions. By any measure you are an effective speaker and educator.
Thank you very much for an enlightening and stimulating presentation. We hope you will return.

Karen Owen-Lee presented her talk, “The Caring Code, What Boomers need to know about Seniors” to the CCV Rotary Club. Karen is enthusiastic and knowledgeable about her subject. She was able to outline for our group the reasons why we as Boomers should be concerned about the Seniors in our lives as well as give us signs to look for to determine if our Senior was in a crisis. Karen was very easy going and her presentation was comfortable and informative. I would recommend Karen Owen-Lee as a speaker to anyone who is looking to gain more insight about the Seniors in their lives.

Karen Owen-Lee did an outstanding professional job speaking to our Lockheed Martin Space Systems Corporation employees last week in the field listed on her credential below. We had a huge turnout of employees for this topic.

Karen Owen-Lee, “The Senior Expert” and author of The Caring Code: What Boomers Need to Know About Seniors, spoke recently to the Arapahoe Sertoma Club. Her presentation was personable, lively and very informative. She discussed steps Baby Boomers, and others, should take in preparation for an “eventual” or “crisis” living transition. The pre-planning she describes reduces the guesswork and stress that occurs during the most stressful times in later life. She also gave helpful information on what to do when there is no plan in effect. I highly recommend her.

The Gateway Optimist Club was privileged to have Karen Owen-Lee as our Wednesday morning Speaker. Fred Pasternack introduced Karen as an authority on matters relating to care givers and senior citizens who may have questions in support of loved ones as they get older. Even though Karen may look like a Movie Star (Candice Bergen), her comedic gestures were used to tone down serious issues that we all must learn to talk about. What an outstanding presentation for all of us that have overlooked some of the necessary requirements as one grows older and needs the assurance that all is well. Our Optimist Club President, Bob Krech, presented Karen with a small token of our appreciation for her interesting and heart warming discussion about “Options For Seniors.” Thank you Karen for sharing your knowledge with us and we hope you come back to visit soon.
This letter of recommendation for a very good and informative speaker for your organization or club.
Karen Owen-Lee spoke to my Gateway Optimist Club. She talks about Senior Options and Senior Living. She was very informative and enlightening to us on things we had never considered. I would strongly advise calling her to speak to your group.
Karen Owen-lee, is a jewel. When faced with stepping up for my Aunt and Uncle she provided me invaluable resources and personal help, I will always cherish. It was a wonderful learning experience for me. I want to thank her from the bottom of my heart. I encourage everyone to take advantage of Housing Options for Seniors. You will face these issues in life. Be prepared!!
This book is a valuable resource for helping elderly parents through healthcare or life transitions. It provides information about the financial, physical and emotional needs of both the seniors, family, and caregivers. It is easy to use and the checklists are very helpful.
I think “ The Caring Code: What Boomers Need to Know About Seniors” is a must have for adult children of aging parents.
It is a How-To book for life’s big problems: moving, needing a bit of care or a lot of care. Having been a caregiver for several years, I have wished for a friend to help give me direction and advice. This book feels like that friend. It has good advice with clear directions and even prices for services. Best of all, there are humor and lightness included to help with the serious decisions. The little family album pictures at the start of each chapter is a welcoming start.
Karen Owen-Lee puts a certain kind of passion into her work. This passion helps families navigate through difficult times with a sense of comfort. She not only does the legwork required so that her clients and their families have less stress, but also works to get them the best fit socially and financially. She is stellar at her job.

I have known Karen Owen-Lee for the last 3 years in a professional capacity. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with her and I would strongly recommend her to any company. Ms. Owen-Lee is extremely personable and professional in her presentation. She is an awesome presenter and has spoken to City and County of Denver employees on several occasions as an expert in assessing and placing people in independent living, assisted living, and Memory Care facilities. She would be an asset to any company.

This review is from: The Caring Code: What Boomers Need to Know About Seniors (Paperback)
This quick-to-read book is filled with practical information, checklists, tips, strategies and solid advice. Real-world stuff, not just hypothetical. It is obvious that Karen Owen-Lee is an expert on seniors. I love that it is written in plain English and easy to use. Also, the personal, family pictures at the start of each chapter help it feel more personal and fun. If you have a senior in your life who may need extra help around the house or consider moving into assisted living, this book will be helpful to you.
Way to go Karen Owen-Lee !! You were great this morning Colorado and Company, Channel 9 – thank you for all you do!
What would we have done without you! You saved our lives when we were in a panic about where to place our mother. When the rehab center said we only had 3 days to place her, and you made it happen for free! Keep up the good work.
Chuck and William Buckley
Thank you for all of your help and for calming me down. When you said ‘breathe,’ I really relaxed. It was feeling like it was never going to happen. You made it happen with ease.
I cannot thank you enough for your time. It feels good to have someone with your education and experience guiding us through this difficult time.
I really appreciate the time you spent showing me around the various facilities. Your knowledge and personality made it so easy. My wife just passed on your information to one of her friends. You are invaluable!
You were such a delight to work with!
I am going to tell all my friends about you. What a great service!
