Director of Client Services, Overland Park Office
Phone: 913.815.1486 ext 15
Lauren Bond is passionate about senior care. She first encountered Care is There as a client, when her father needed support in Charlottesville. Care is There was extremely valuable to her family. They helped her father through general aging challenges, medical complications, rehabilitation, and downsizing the home. The impact of Care is There made a lasting impression on Lauren.
A few years later, when Lauren was looking for a new professional opportunity, she contacted Care is There. She wanted to bring this valuable service to Kansas City. Soon after, Care is There in Overland Park, KS was born.
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.”
