Karen Doughtie aims to make a difference for people with Alzheimer’s.
KAREN DOUGHTIE FOUND HER calling when she began working with Alzheimer’s patients and their families. “Our elders are not always treated with a great deal of respect,” she said. “In this position, I can make a di ference.”
Originally from Houston, Doughtie is a 30-year resident of Hilton Head Island and has been with Alzheimer’s Respite & Resource for about 5 1/2 years.
“I believe that it’s a calling from God,” she said. “I was always close to my grandmother and grandfather. I have a great love for seniors because of their experience in life.”
Doughtie has a degree in early elementary special education and a background in tourism sales and marketing.
