Cathy

Nurse Assistant, 

"Chief Motivator"

Cathy is our go-to person when someone is down or refuses to get up and out. She'll start them with a quick trip to the store, then a full shopping trip. Soon enough, she has them excited about a dinner date or show tickets at a local dinner theatre. For seniors struggling with isolation, Cathy's focus on engaging with old friends or making new friends is entertaining and motivating.

She's also a superb cook, involving her clients in organizing shopping trips and making special meals. One day while cleaning, Cathy found $1400 forgotten by a client under his mattress. Because of experiences like this that demonstrate her trustworthy, loving character, deep friendships develop between Cathy and her clients.

A professional with Cura for over 5 years, Lorraine is a stickler for being on time and providing the highest level of quality care. She gets requested by families because of her warm guidance through hospice or chronic illness, and she remains friends with clients and families after recovery.

 

Lorraine is well known in the community: a Nashville native having worked with synagogues, preschools, community groups. Lorraine loves listening to people's stories and learning about their backgrounds, and loves how each person is unique.

Professional spotlight Fazile

Fazile

Ever since she was a child, Fazile has dreamed of helping people. "I've always wanted to care for people. As a CNA, I get to help people by treating them like family." For Fazile, putting a smile on people's faces makes all the work worthwhile.

The above are a small sampling of our extensive staff of top-notch providers!
