Spotlight on Latoya Smith, Compliance Manager for Seniors In Place
Nobody is more essential to the smooth running of our very complex business than Latoya. Not only does she make sure we comply with the stringent federal and state standards for in-home care, but she ensures that every caregiver’s documentation aligns with the requirements of The Commission on Accreditation for Home Care and the regulations of the New Jersey Board of Nursing.
And that’s only part of her story.
Latoya is one of those amazing individuals who makes it her job to help others – clients, caregivers, co-workers. When someone needs help, it’s usually Latoya they turn to.
“It does get overwhelming. But I take pride in that usually I don’t say ‘no,’ says Latoya. “Even if my work is falling off the desk, I’m still willing to help a co-worker.”
Latoya is a Jersey girl, born, raised, and educated at Elizabeth High School and Union County College. Prior to Seniors In Place, she was with The Division of Developmental Disability and Manager of a group home of residents who were “abled differently.” She is passionate about her work, talented, and happy to share her special skills with others in order to support our caregivers and ensure that our senior clients have the care they need and deserve.
When asked about future plans, she says it will continue to be Seniors In Place. Being a family business allows her to have a good work/life balance and take care of her own large family.
