Family Connect Care, where our mission is to assure that our clients receive the very best medical, personal, and emotional care from their care providers. We work with the “Chronologically Gifted” and their families to enhance quality of life, encourage independence, and assure a safe and supportive living environment.
Lauren founded Family Connect Care in 2008 after working with the elderly and memory-impaired for several years. Seeing first-hand examples of mistreatment and taking advantage of memory-impaired individuals, she saw the need for enhanced care management services and to assure the dignity of those who suffer from a variety of cognitive impairments.
Lauren has a love for older people, whom she refers to as, “chronologically gifted.” Some have even called her the, “Dementia Whisperer,” due to her innate ability to intuitively know what her clients need, even when they can’t express it for themselves.
Lauren earned her Bachelor’s degree from the University of LaVerne. She served the public for more than a decade, working for the cities of El Segundo and Redondo Beach.
Lauren holds many certifications related to aging and memory care. Among these, she is certified in gerontology by the California Board of Registered Nursing and in Physician Orders for Life-Sustaining Treatment. She is also certified by the Validation Training Institute in Validation Therapy.
