Patrick Flaherty – President & Founder

My name is Patrick Flaherty and I founded Guided Living after seeing the difficulties of finding trustworthy and reliable in-home care. I wanted to create a company where the quality of care and communication with clients and their families were the unwavering top priorities.

We have incorporated great technology into the company like our online family portal that gives families a real time look into our care. One of our goals is to build trust and show accountability to clients and their families through transparency.

Our team has set the highest standards for care and each client has a dedicated Registered Nurse that will supervise caregivers, perform regular in home check-ins, and most importantly be available for clients and families to help navigate through tough questions and uncertainties during difficult times.

The Guided Living Team treats our clients and their families as our own.
We’re in this business because of our passion for care and it’s our #1 priority.

Our Team

Erin has been a member of the Guided Living team since 2014 and brings over 20 years of healthcare and home care experience. Through her career, she has specialized in caring for hospice, palliative, Alzheimer’s and dementia populations. Erin’s bachelor’s degrees in both nursing and psychology are invaluable educational tools when supporting clients and their loved ones during a delicate and sensitive stage in their lives.

Erin is our lead assessment nurse and often the first person our clients and their loved ones meet in their home. She is an expert at formulating individualized care plans assuring the highest care and satisfaction for our clients. Erin also provides oversight of clients and caregiver staff through ongoing supervisory visits. Through these visits, her assessment skills and clinical knowledge of the disease process have been vital to prevent unplanned events and rehospitalizations.

In addition to her clinical nursing roles, Erin has the position of Community Liaison on the Guided Living team. As an experienced nurse, Erin builds relationships with community medical providers who understand the importance and value of registered nurse oversight in senior home care.

Laura Coletti
Laura ColettiClinical Care Oversight RN
Laura brings over two decades of RN experience working primarily as a case manager for medically compromised patients in the community and dementia patients living at home. As a case manager, she developed care plans using a multi-disciplinary team approach which were individualized and written to prevent re-hospitalization and safety in the home. Laura is passionate about ensuring that elders who are home bound, have cognitive impairments and/or failing health are able to feel confident that they can have quality of life, feel safe and empowered.

Over the years that Laura has been a clinical staff supervisor, overseeing professionals across the full continuum of community care, her priority has been making sure staff feels supported, their opinions and feelings valued, and excellent care is delivered.
