About Lauren

Hi, I'm Lauren. I have over 20 compassionate years caring for seniors in their home. I've done Palliative care, Alzheimer's and Dementia care and am very familiar with senior illnesses. I care for people. I love helping others. I'm CPR and First Aid certified. Some medical background. I'm very reliable and you can count on me. We moved to Texas last year to be closer to family to help out. I love animals and I also make inspirational jewelry as my way of sharing my faith.:) I don't smoke or drink. I have two grown boys and family is important to me. I take care of people as if they were my own family. My references are excellent. I am fully vaccinated against Covid. Thank you for reading this and I hope to hear from you. Blessings, Lauren
