I graduated with my doctorate in Occupational Therapy from Pacific University in 2015 with a desire to "restore a life that has been interrupted or impaired by life events. I strive to uphold others’ definition of health and wellness with dignity, respect, education, and hope." Since graduating, I have been working exclusively in elderly care as an OT in the skilled nursing setting as both management and therapist.
Since working in elderly care, I have seen a great need for caregiver support in helping to understand, and navigate, the medical world of care for the oldest of the olds. To answer that need, I have created this community for learning how to advocate for your loved one who experiencing the frustration of navigating the medical and care needs with knowledge of medical world processes and your loved one's rights.
Not only do I have insider knowledge and information, but I too have been a caregiver for an aging parent in the home until his passing and understand the frustration of dealing with doctors, hospitals, and other medical facilities all while being overwhelmed and tired.
“They would have transported my son over 178 miles when he was dying if Lorena hadn’t told me what to say to stop it.”
“Lorena is the reason my Mom didn’t get booted out of General Hospital here in WW – they weren’t going to allow the third night of stay – then she helped us get her to a rehab center.
The hospital person acted as if we were trying to break a law! It was crazy!!!"
“My husband was admitted to the hospital after he fell from a ladder and hit his head. Lorena explained to us there were two different types of admissions. We now know to ask the nurse which type he has been admitted under. It makes a difference for rehab stay"
