Meet Lori

I have MUCH experience with individuals with various special needs. I am PRN overnights on occasion contracting with the government for woman whom have been warded to the state and found to have severe psychological diagnoses. It gives great satisfaction to encourage them to lead productive/social lives(safely) promoting a higher quality of life. I have done social work/job coaching evaluating behavior and productivity. I have schooling as a nurse allowing me to administer medications as well as transfer if need be. I am very familiar with most all aspects/diagnoses mentally and physically and strongly believe that people do not care about how much you know until they know how much you care. I feel this population are a joy to work with and truly bring out the best in me. I use to think that they were just learning from me.. but as the years have passed I have become more experienced I know now that I too am learning from them.

Joe S. Hired Lori
Feb 22, 2019
Lori conducted herself very professionally, jumping right in wherever she was most needed. I appreciated the eagerness to help in whatever capacity and the attitude she carried while doing it. I trusted my family ( my children, my Mother in law, our home and our furry family members with her and was never let down)! She monitored my mother in laws blood sugar levels (keeping her on a low sugar diet), medication administration, assisted with her seizure disorder and was an extraordinary help in dealing with her Alzheimer's and dementia. Truth be told she actually saved my mother in laws life by noticing the battery on her pace maker had significantly died down to almost a complete stop! Though we've moved from the area, Lori remains a part of mine and my families lives.
