Meet the Long Beach Team
Julia LaPlountOwner/Community Relations
Julia has lived in Long Beach for 56 years. She and her husband raised their two children in Long Beach. In the past she has been a volunteer for the Friendly Visitors program for Seniors in Long Beach and has also been a Hospice Volunteer.
Julia worked for a non-profit for 38 years. Their mission was research and education for the elderly and disabled. As CEO she was directly involved in their Adult Daycare Center for Alzheimer's and Dementia and in developing a Wellness Center specifically designed for the needs of the elderly and disabled.
When her mother suffered a stroke, she became her caregiver. For years she had witnessed the frustration of families looking for help for their loved ones. She experienced this first hand with her own mother when employing caregivers through agencies. Julia was fortunate to work with the Rancho Los Amigos National Rehabilitation Center where they specialize in rehab for Spinal Cord Injury, Post Stroke, Brain Injury and Diabetes. She received training and advice from Occupational Therapists, Physical Therapists and a Geriatric Physician, whose specialty was gerontology research and education. These relationships were invaluable in enabling her to provide the best care for her mom.
Her desire is to provide the best care to her clients and to provide support to the families, comes from her own personal experiences. She is very familiar with working with the different public agencies and feels she can make an important contribution to the well- being of their clients and families.
Jennifer RodriguesDirector of Operations
Jennifer was born and raised in Long Beach, where she attended grade school, middle school and Millikan High school. As a customer service specialist for over 20 years, she made sure her staff treated their customers with respect and put them first. She brings this same commitment to excellent customer service to her position as Director of Operations. She assisted her mom in caring for her grandmother and her dad. The last several years, she has shared a home with someone who has developed Dementia. When she approached the family, they did not understand the changes that she was witnessing, and that assistance was needed. Eventually, they agreed to have their loved one evaluated, and she received the diagnosis. Since that time, Jennifer has assisted in finding caregivers for her. She has also developed a passion for not only helping the client, but also providing education and assistance to caregiving families.
