Saturday, August 11 – Caregiver Resources
Lauren will be speaking on caregiver support and practical resources for caregivers. This will be a great session for seniors AND their caregivers to attend together. Lauren will talk about the value of a Care Manager; a useful resource even when the senior feels they are still able to live independently. She’ll talk about having an advocate and remaining independent.
About Lauren Bond:
Lauren holds degrees in Nursing (BSN) and Computer Science (BS, MS). She is a second-career nurse. Additionally, she worked for almost 9 years in the acute hospital setting. Her experience includes heart patient care, inpatient medical/surgical care, and hospital-based outpatient clinics.
“When an older loved one starts to struggle with every day activities, it is difficult for a family to know how to help. It’s even harder when the family is not nearby,” Lauren says. “I felt so helpless in maintaining my father’s quality of life from far away. Care is There made all the difference for Dad. Now, I want to use my experience and expertise to help families in the Kansas City area in the same way.”
