Stephanie Caddell, RN Director of NursingStephanie Caddell, RN Director of Nursing
My name is Stephanie Caddell. I am a Registered Nurse and Clinical Manager for our Wake County office, which means that I make sure that we are staying within the state guidelines for Home Care licensure. I also ensure our clients and families have everything they need from assessment ongoing along with the team of fantastic nurses we have here.
I have been with Homewatch Caregivers since 2015, and my favorite part of my job is making sure each individual is comfortable both within our care and with resources outside of our scope. When you are a loved one is faced with changes in health, it can be extremely overwhelming, and decisions add up to equal anxiety and fear. I enjoy being able to take that anxiety away, bear the burden of these choices, and offer guidance and support to those who need it. It is so satisfying to see someone flourish simply because I may have offered direction or education.
Many of our client’s families live out of state. We had one particular client whose family realized help was necessary in regards to ensuring medications were taken, but did not realize that the client was actually obtaining pills from two separate pharmacies. This resulted in the client’s non-compliance of taking any medications as prescribed on some days, and overtaking a specific type of medication on others. As a Home Care agency we cannot be directly responsible for medication management, but we do have resources that can. I set the client and family up with a local pharmacy that can deliver medication in pre-packaged form. From there, the client was taken off of medication he did not need. We have been providing medication reminders to the client ever since, with no hospitalizations or traumatic events to speak of for more than a year. This makes his family feel so comfortable, since they cannot be here to help him directly. I treated the situation exactly as if this was my own family member, as I always do; and the outcome was completely fulfilling.
When I am not working, I relish spending time with my family, being active outdoors, cooking, and attending local concerts.

Laura Hanlon, RN, BSN Nurse SupervisorLaura Hanlon, RN, BSN Nurse Supervisor
My name is Laura Hanlon RN, BSN. I have worked for HomeWatch Caregivers in Cary, NC for 5 years. As a nurse supervisor, I have the pleasure of meeting our clients personally and through conversation and collaboration, make a plan of care that fits their needs. I also have the privilege of working alongside our caregivers, and through training and encouragement, assist them in their quest to be the best caregiver they can possibly be. I have found the members of our office are dedicated to excellence as we assist families while they navigate the sometimes complex world of home care. We work closely with families to ensure that their loved one is receiving the best possible care. We advocate for our clients whenever we can to assist in helping them be as functional as possible, physically and mentally and spiritually.
Our office staff and caregivers are given the opportunity to experience a Virtual Dementia Tour given by our own certified staff members. Going through a Virtual Dementia Tour has allowed me to experience a small fraction of what it is like to have dementia. The empathy for clients and families experiencing this life changing diagnosis has increased ten- fold due to this experience. In addition to the pleasure of working with client’s and their families, I enjoy collaborating with other Home Health and Hospice agencies, as well as other geriatric professionals, to assist clients and support their loved ones.
My job is very satisfying in many ways and I can go home each day knowing that I have made a difference in someone’s life.
In my downtime, I enjoy spending time with my children, rock climbing, boating and collaborating with her dad to make jewelry.
