ABOUT US

         After working with a colleague at a home care agency based in Los Angeles, Leslie saw the need for a hands-on home care agency based in Orange County -- an agency that would focus on truly helping people by finding the best care for clients and their loved ones. Leslie then approached Michelle with the idea of starting their own home care company. They thought they could build a successful business with Leslie’s medical knowledge from being a Registered Nurse and her excellent business mind, in addition to Michelle’s Human Resources background. They knew that they would be able to provide excellent care for clients and create rewarding jobs for caregivers. 

 

        In addition to their professional experience, Leslie and Michelle have both had personal experiences caregiving for their loved ones -- Leslie coordinated and provided care for her mother, and Michelle cared for both her husband and father. Michelle and Leslie know the experiences of being a caregiver, and they understand the challenges that accompany caring for relatives and loved ones. Carefree Home Care gives family members the chance to step away from being the caregivers to their loved ones, and allows them to really enjoy the family relationship in a stronger and more pure sense.

        Leslie and Michelle matched their first client and caregiver on Easter Sunday of 2013. Since then, the number of clients, caregivers, and office staff have grown exponentially. Carefree continues to provide the highest level of care for its clients. The staff at Carefree work tirelessly to find the right client/caregiver match. Carefree employees do what they do because they truly care for others, and that permeates into all aspects of their work.

 

        Our goal is to always provide undeniably amazing loving care, and to always be there for the senior community. Compassion and quality patient care is the heart and soul of our service and commitment. Carefree Home Care is dedicated to providing care and attention with respect and dignity that our seniors deserve.

Our Team

Leslie
Director, RN
I was very focused on my career for much of my life, but after my husband and I adopted our son, I decided to leave my job of 12 years at the Lindora Clinic to stay home and raise him. Once he was getting older and spending less time at home, I decided to start working again. Around this time, I met someone who ran her own home care agency focused in the Los Angeles area, which gave me the idea to start a home care agency that would service clients in Orange County.
 
From my personal experience with my mother, I know how hard it is to find good care for family members, and based on my previous experience with home care, I felt that I could do a better job. I knew my sister-in-law Michelle was looking for some kind of meaningful work after retirement, and she had work experience that I knew would be valuable to the company, so I asked her to come on board.
 
My medical experience from being a registered nurse enables us to have an added layer of oversight where we can help to manage any condition changes and manage medication. Being the Director of Carefree is an incredibly fulfilling job, and it is an honor to help people every day.
Michelle

Shortly after I retired from my 37-year career in the Human Resources department of UPS, my father suffered a stroke. My sister and I cared for him together as a team, and prior to that, I provided care for my husband when he fell ill. Through both of those experiences, I learned how challenging it is to provide end-of-life care for family members because it can alter the relationship with your relative or spouse.

After retirement, I was looking for something meaningful to do part-time, and that's when Leslie approached me with the idea of starting Carefree Home Care. My favorite part about Carefree is hearing how much we’re helping clients and their family members, and hearing about how much the caregivers enjoy working for us. I feel a sense of pride and reward every day!

Director, Administration
Stephanie
Client Servies Director

Prior to my grandmother passing away in 2012, my family and I provided care for her and did everything we could to ensure that she was comfortable during her final days; this experience made me realize my passion for helping others. I worked in the hospitality industry for 6 years, but shortly after my grandmother passed, I began my career in the home care industry.

 

Helping families figure out the best options for their loved ones, providing safety and comfort for clients, and offering good jobs for caregivers have made the past 7 years very fulfilling and rewarding. I feel a great sense of accomplishment when we hear about the positive impact we have made both in our clients’ and caregivers’ lives. 

 

I enjoy matching caregivers to clients and watching their relationships develop and grow over time. Each day is different at Carefree Home Care, which gives me the opportunity to learn and grow both as a person and in my career. I am forever grateful to work for such an amazing company! 

Eleanor
A few years before joining Carefree Home Care, I used to own and manage a home care agency located on Wilshire Boulevard. The areas of service included Beverly Hills, Malibu, Westwood, and other surrounding cities. 
 
What prompted me to go into this business was the fact that a lot of my friends’ parents and relatives seem to be constantly looking for quality caregivers. I believe that excellent caregiving is not just filling a void in people, but adding joy and creating meaningful moments in their lives. I enjoy working for Carefree because it is a small company that offers flexibility, not too many layers of management, and has a unique workplace culture.

Brittany
Client Services Manager
I've lived a fairly nomadic lifestyle, which has made me very adaptable and open to new experiences. As a child, I lived in Westminster, Dallas, Temecula, and Houston, and I received my Bachelor of Psychology in San Antonio - go Roadrunners! More recently, I moved from Houston to Costa Mesa in September 2018 in order to be closer to family, and now I even get to work for family - Leslie Wulff is my aunt!
My favorite part of my job with Carefree is simple: I get to help people. Meeting new people and helping with their needs is so fulfilling, and I'm always growing as a person because I learn something new every single day. I've worked in a few industries since I graduated college, but I've finally found my calling in home care. 
I have been in the home care industry since 2013. For the first three years, I worked as a caregiver, and for the past three years, I have been working in the home care office setting - but I still get to work as a caregiver from time to time, which I love! I have always loved being able to help and care for my clients; I find comfort in knowing that I am able to help ease others' lives by being there for them and being their advocate.
 
I can truly say that my passion had always been caring for our senior population.

Accounts Receivable

I have worked at Carefree Home Care for 3 years. Prior to Carefree, I worked primarily corporate roles in healthcare, education, and technology. I previously worked with Leslie at Lindora Clinic, and a few years ago, Leslie reached out to me and invited me to join the Carefree team to manage the California Home Care Aide Registry. Since then, I have taken on the role of receivables, billing, collections, and other various projects.
 
I like that Carefree focuses on matching the caregivers and clients; Carefree works hard to get the right person in the client’s home. I like Carefree because of the people, and I enjoy the camaraderie in the office. I have made many lasting friendships at Carefree, and Carefree will always hold a special place in my heart.
