“I started looking at homes for my mom on my own, but I soon became overwhelmed. After speaking with Laura, [at Supporting Seniors] I instantly felt relief. We had a plan!”

Supporting Seniors Founder

Laura Polegato

“I have always been passionate about helping seniors. I had the great fortune of being close to my grandparents growing up. I loved  listening to their stories and learning about the world they grew up in. Today, I am very fortunate to have so many wonderful people share their stories with me, as I help them transition into a new chapter of their lives.” – Laura Polegato

Laura has devoted over 18 years to senior’s advocacy and services. She has a wealth of experience and knowledge as a senior’s services professional, including an Honours BA degree in Psychology and Gerontology, from the University of Ottawa.

 

Laura spent many years in Community Support Services, (for seniors and adults with physical disabilities) with Abbotsford at the Glebe Centre, managing programs and arranging services to help clients stay at home for as long as possible. She also has experience working in long-term care, retirement residences, adult dementia day programs, private home care and retirement living consulting.
Since 2016, she has been working as a Senior Living Advisor, supporting seniors with their transition into retirement living.

 

Outside of Supporting Seniors, Laura is a volunteer with The Dementia Society of Ottawa, as a caregiver support group facilitator. She is also a devoted granddaughter and caregiver to her own 97-year-old grandmother, Dorothy, (from whom she gets her good sense of style)! Laura most enjoys spending time at her home in Ottawa, with her fiancé Brad and their two dachshunds, Finnigan and Gilligan!
