Lean On Me Caregiving
My name is Laura Garofoli and I am a nurse entrepreneur, care navigator, and elder care consultant. In my personal life, I am a family caregiver. My own mother is challenged with a severe disability and continuing to live in her own home, but with many needs. This is why I choose to specialize in care management, care navigation, and all things caregiving.
I understand elder care on the personal side, the family side, and the business side. It all started when my mother needed immediate care in her home. I could not quickly and affordably find skilled nursing or competent caregiving. Out of the need to care for my mom and hopefully a loved one of yours, my businesses were born.
For the general public, I offer Lean on Me Caregiving, a 24-hour in-home care service offering supportive living, personal care, and wellness to retired executives in the comfort of their home.
For exclusive skilled nursing, care management, and care navigation, I provide services under Lean On Me Nursing.
Through Lean On Me Nursing, I work with families needing a professional to navigate the health care continuum or facilities needing nurse delegation services.
I work with long distance family caregivers caring for their loved ones who are retired executives and families in the sandwich generation. I help families who do not want the stress of family caregiving, but WANT to see their loved one thrive in the place they know by heart - their home, on their own terms regardless of their medical diagnosis.
My clients include adult professionals seeking help for their aging loved ones, long distance family caregivers needing help to navigate the elder care and retirement living industry, assisted living facilities who need navigators to help their residents to stay in the facility longer, and attorneys and guardians seeking help for their clients.
Here is why I enjoy such a fine reputation.
I am a daughter, a mom, a nurse, a fellow parishioner, and a council member of the Elder Care Planning Council of Delaware. My personal and core values is popularly known as i.C.A.R.E.
