About Lauren

Hello! I am currently a CNA and I love what I do! I love caring for those that need a little or a lot of extra help. I enjoy talking with residents and learning about what they have experienced in their life, while telling them new and exciting things about mine. My favorite thing to do is to give a resident a good laugh or even a big smile. I often times say silly things or jokes to brighten their day a bit! I am a very empathetic person and always try to help someone with whatever they are going through. If someone is having a bad day, I can talk to them about it and usually get their mind focused on something else, while ending the conversation in a smile. I consider myself to be a kind-hearted, compassionate, efficient, hard-working professional with a good sense of humor. I'm willing to go the extra mile for my elders and to help in any way possible.
