Luz Peterson


Organization: Attentive Home Care


Why should this person be nominated? (What makes nominee unique; why should they be selected the winner of this category?
Luz takes care of my mother

What is this nominee’s involvement in senior care or senior issues
My mother is 92 years old with dementia. She has 7 children (I am youngest) who have very definite ideas about how mother could be cared for. Luz deals with all those A personalities like a real pro. My mother repeats things over and over and over. Luz never raises her voice and when my mother is so confused she wants to "go home" (she is home) Luz will take her for a car ride or a walk and take her "home" We are so fortunate to have someone who treats mom like her own. She takes her to various events around town and is a true blessing.

If it weren't for Luz my mother would be in an assisted living facility when it was always her wish to be at home where she belongs.

Thank you LUZ!!!
