Lori Arena, BSN, RN
Geriatric Care Manager
When someone asks how long I have been a nurse, I have to think about that because I can’t remember when I wasn’t a nurse! Being a nurse is who and what I am all about. My career as a Registered Nurse has spanned over 40 years, working in many different fields of medicine, such as hospitals, wound care, home care, medical sales, doctors’ offices, and most recently, as a parish nurse.
When speaking with a dear friend of mine about her mom, she told me how a care manager from Peace Aging Care Experts has changed their lives for the better. She commented that she felt I would be a perfect fit as a Geriatric Care Manager. Combining my diverse nursing background, love of working with geriatric and all patient populations, using my nursing experience in the capacity of a geriatric care manager sparked my interest, and I immediately contacted Trish. The rest is history!
I recently completed a 200-hour yoga training course which beautifully aligns with my nursing practice to offer a holistic approach to patient care. I genuinely believe that when the body, mind, and spirit are not in balance, one cannot fully achieve an optimal state of wellness.
When I’m not working with my care management clients, I enjoy my yoga practice, spending time with family and good friends, reading, spending time outdoors, and embarking on any new adventures which may come my way!Back to Team Page
