Meet The Face Behind Prosper Home Care
I’m Doug Lueder, the proud owner of Prosper Home Care. I look forward to sharing my story. I hope that you will enjoy getting to know me better.
Growing up with a mother who was a registered nurse, comforting care was just a part of helping others achieve the best quality of life possible no matter their circumstances. Later, I learned first-hand how to be a good caregiver when my younger brother became a quadriplegic after suffering a major car accident.
After graduating with a dual major degree in hospitality and business from the University of Tennessee, I worked for several organizations like WebMD, MedCast and other medical information businesses, gaining valuable experience.
In 2006, I opened my first home care business. In 2013, I established Prosper Home Care, hoping to blend my personal and professional experiences with my formal education to provide comfort for loved ones and complete confidence for families.
When I first began my career, I did everything from caregiving to administrative work myself. Now, nearly fifteen years later, I manage a staff of 250 caregivers, 20 administrative staff, and nurses in two separate cities.
I have found that as our ageing population continues to grow, the data conclusively proves that people prefer to age in the place they call home. Furthermore, health outcomes and quality of life tend to be better when people can live independently in their homes for as long as possible.
I designed our process of offering quality caregivers to assist our clientele with daily living activities, including everything from showering and hygiene assistance, dressing, housekeeping, medication management and transportation. I firmly believe that by providing a reliable helping hand, our clients and their families can enjoy life without worrying about the health of their loved ones and the emotional toll of isolation.
The part of the business I most enjoy is meeting so many interesting people from different cultures, backgrounds and walks of life. I find it highly rewarding when I find the right caregiver to provide the care, assistance and companionship needed to help people safely age in place at home.
I have also found that owning my own home care business has allowed me to get involved in advocacy and public policy. I’ve been able to speak prominently on the quality of life issues surrounding our elderly and disabled citizens and helped to enact change.
Over several years, I proposed and participated in getting multiple laws passed that further protect our elderly and disabled populations in Georgia. These laws prevent potential caregivers with a proven history of abuse, neglect or record of exploitation from working in the home care industry. Initiatives like these have given me immense satisfaction over the years and continue to inspire me to do more.
At Prosper Home Care, I additionally strive to create a positive culture where caregivers want to work and feel appreciated and believe it ensures my employees will make the same effort to help our clients live happier and healthier lives.
I attribute the success of Prosper Home Care to my desire to care for my clients as if they were my own family. I think that by providing an alternative support system for elderly and disabled people who choose to stay in their homes, my business has helped thousands of families stay together, longer, and enjoy their time together.
When I am not at work, I enjoy working on my classic cars; fresh and saltwater fishing; listening to and playing music. Most of all, I love raising my two beautiful kids.
I have enjoyed sharing my story about the things which matter to me and how they influence the way I do business.
