Laura Carr is a native of Oklahoma City, OK and a proud graduate of the University of Oklahoma. She is well traveled having lived in Oklahoma City, Houston, San Diego, San Francisco (twice) and Dallas (twice). Like many of us, Laura entered the senior services industry after she was affected on a personal level when her father was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. In 1995, Laura moved from San Francisco to Oklahoma to help her parents navigate the confusing waters of Medicare, Veteran’s Benefits and other resources. Through this personal experience (“nightmare” as she calls it) Laura recognized that there is a great need for people to help seniors find options for care.
Today, Laura provides durable medical equipment and helps seniors take advantage of the state’s Senior Telecommunications Assistance Program, which provides free phones for those that have a sight or hearing impairment. Laura is also the Senior Services Liaison for her church, Skillman Church of Christ.
Skillman Church of Christ is hosting Senior Adult Healthfair on September 29 from 10am to 1pm, and is extending an invitation to the Eugeria! Radio listening community. Skillman Church of Christ is located at 3120 Skillman Street in Dallas. Visit them on the web at www.skillmanchurch.org. To contact Laura, you can reach her by phone at 214-388-0088 or by emailing her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
