Linda R. Carl, RN – Home Nursing and Companion Services

For those of you who need in-home personalized professional or companion care for family or friends, I am a seasoned Registered Nurse in Santa Monica, California, with many years’ experience caring for patients of all ages in a variety of settings. For over fifteen years, I specialized in emergency department and trauma unit nursing, including supervising paramedics to become crisis first responders. As a Certified Instructor of Adult Education for over five years, I taught full time, teaching students to become caring skilled nurses.

My diverse background also includes many years of caring for seniors at all levels. For five fascinating years, I traveled across the country caring for seniors who had a wide variety of needs – physical, mental, cognitive, social and spiritual – at every level of acuity, type of setting and culture.

I strive always to maintain current knowledge in the field of senior care. I attend professional conferences, read multiple journals and network with colleagues. Recently, I successfully completed a university graduate course, both clinical and classroom, in scientific evidence- based geriatric nursing.  My philosophy of nursing is holistic. I see each patient as unique and multi-dimensional himself or herself, while living, also, within multi-dimensional relationships and society. I love my profession, and consider it a privilege to care for people with empathy and understanding at a time in their lives when they need it most.
