Claire has over 40 years of experience helping patients find the best healthcare. Clalire graduated from
Children's Hospital School of Nursing
Salve Regina University
Claire's nursing career spanned many areas of practice including inpatient, outpatient, and emergency room care, school nursing, recruitment, and home care. She has held several different administrative positions while gaining this extensive experience. Throughout each area, one common theme prevailed. Claire was always advocating for patients, families, students, fellow professionals or clients. It only stands to reason that she is passionate about the need for advocacy in this ever changing network of health care. Claire most recently dealt with an aging mother who went from living alone in the family home to elderly housing with personal care services to the eventual need to be transferred to a skilled nursing facility. Across the continuum of care it was essential to work with the multiple people involved in each transition and to be sure the best appropriate care was received. Also important, was the need to address end of life choices, make decisions that were accepted by all and assuring her mother died in comfort and with dignity. It is critical that we all have the right to question care, understand what is available, and get the best possible services and outcome when it comes to our health care needs.
Claire founded Labyrinth Health Advocacy to help bring you PEACE OF MIND when navigating today’s health care network.
