About Laura

I've always been a caregiver most all of my life. At 19 my best friend found out she had a brain tumor. I quit my day job to help take care of her the last 6 months of her life. My great Aunt had Alzheimer's I took care of her til the end of her life. My father got sick and I took care of him before he passed he told me this was my calling to be a caregiver. So I went to school to become a CNA and have worked over 20 years caring for people. For the last 3 years I have done a lot of hospice work as well as taking care of others. I am a very compassionate and caring person. I can adopt to any situation that's needed. I love what I do I become attached very quickly to my client and there family's. To help someone is the greatest feeling there is... I also have a current background check as well as I am registered with the state.
