Home Health Agency Provides Medicare Support to Independent Living and Nursing Homes in Houston TX

At Senior Allegiance, a Medicare certified and licensed Home Health Agency, we strive for employees that not only enjoy being at work and make you smile, but staff that helps our clients above and beyond nursing-homes-in-houstonexpectations! There is no one better on our staff at this then our Director of Nursing Karina Walker RN BSN. The Director of Nurses plays a critical role in ensuring that our assisted living Houston residents receive the necessary supportive care so they can continue to live independently in their apartments. A small helping hand can make all the difference in a senior remaining active and healthy. 

As Director of Nursing, Karina provides her expertise to residents on the following types of issues: 

  • Overview of Medicare coverage.
  • Approval for Home Health Care services
  • Oversight of Senior Allegiance nurses and aides
  • Coordinator with Families on Resident Care Plan

  • One of Main Emergency  Responders to Assist Independent Living Residents in Need of Help 

Are you aware that Medicare covers the cost of many of the services that allow you to remain active, especially if you have been hospitalized in the past year?  Karina will work with your doctor to help identify service needs that can be provided under the Medicare program, including physical, occupational or speech therapy as well as nursing care. 

Karina joined Senior Allegiance as the Care Coordinator five years ago where she was responsible for scheduling, making sure all of her senior living patients were seen on time and received their proper treatments. She had just received her Bachelors in Nursing from the University of St. Louis, MO on an academic scholarship and was looking to return to her hometown of Houston. 

Karina is an incredibly hard working, loyal and good hearted nurse that always strives for perfection. As Director of Nursing, Karina shares the same loving attitude to her work that she does with her family. Married to Chris Walker, with a wonderful two year old daughter Olivia, Karina’s favorite hobby is vacationing with her family and simply relaxing together with them. She is also a very determined and athletic nurse as well. Last summer Karina finished the Spartan race In Austin, TX as well as the MS 150 Bike ride.
