Two St. Louis television stations chose HCAOA Member and Veterans Home Care founder Bonnie Laiderman as one of four local honorees from over 180 nominations for its Remarkable Women award, an initiative to celebrate local inspiring leaders.
In 2003, Laiderman started Veterans Home Care, a family home care business to help veterans or surviving spouses of veterans find home care with no out-of-pocket expenses by helping them apply for VA aid to pay for in-home assistance. The organization has helped more than 20,000 veterans and their spouses.
Laiderman also launched SmartCompanion Care LLC, which provides smart home technology for seniors through Alexa. The company installs and sets up the service and customizes it to provide 24-7 security. She plans to add calls to the service, adding “It’s terribly sad that the elderly people are alone, and days can go by, and they never talk to anybody.”
