Laura Allens - Care Manager
Originally from Evansville, Indiana, Laura Allen earned her degree in social work from the University of Southern Indiana in 2009. After college, she worked in care management for eight years before transferring to the medical field as a case manager and discharge planner for a local hospital. It was there that she saw the gaps seniors face in getting proper care that allows them to return home and age with grace and dignity.
"During my time at the hospital unit, I saw how badly non-medical services were needed and that is when I realized that my passion was in non-medical home care. I am a huge advocate for keeping seniors at home for as long as possible so they can age with dignity and grace within the comforts of their own space. I have seen both ends of the spectrum and I have seen how important non-medical services are for increasing quantity and quality of the lives of seniors."
