Solutions for Seniors® was founded by Gayle Horton in 1997 to help simplify the complex and often difficult process of evaluating community services as well as alternative living arrangements for older loved ones. Since then, we have grown into a full-service care management company. Gayle retired in 2018, but the team of Nurse Care Managers is still in place and is growing!
Our Care Managers
Karen Pirkle, RN has been practicing nursing since 1974 when she received her BSN from the Medical College of Georgia. Karen is a Georgia native and she grew up in Macon. She has also lived in Birmingham, AL., but returned to Georgia over 20 years ago.
Karen and her husband live in Cumming which a booming part of Forsyth County. Since moving to Cumming Karen has been the Nurse Manager for a Community Health Center. As the Nurse Manager she was in charge of helping patients and their families navigate the increasingly complicated health care system.
Karen’s passion for assisting older adults as they age, began with her own grandparents. Her interest grew even more when she helped care for her own father who has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. She is very excited about joining the Solutions For Seniors team and providing care management services.
Karen enjoys reading, classic movies and spending time with her family. She especially enjoys her newest role of “Grandmother!”
“My professional goal is to see that every person I care for will be safe and as respected as any member of my own family”
