J. Claira Flores
Founder, CEO, PCA, and more
Currently we are compiling details on our teammates, and you will be able to find out more about them on this page in the near future.
J. Claira Flores has a long history of public and individual service positions. They started their service as a student senator at UMWestern and have been a volunteer for non-profits for approximately half a decade, including but not limited to a year at the Jeanette Rankin Peace Center.
They began their work in care 7 years ago at the Springs Assisted Living Center. While technically being kitchen staff, Claira was mainly a self-directed employee within the memory care unit. Their previous manager, Michael Richter, expressed that, “Claira exhibits great skill in providing supports to those facing aging related illnesses: compassion, consistency, and going the extra mile to ensure needs are met.” This position aided Claira to become equipped for personal care work.
After resigning from her position at The Springs, she went on to accept a position at Opportunity Resources as a professional care assistant for individuals with disabilities. Beth Taylor Wilson, a supervisor at Opportunity Resources says that, “Claira is a kind compassionate caregiver, with a cheerful and helpful demeanor. She genuinely cares about all her client's well-being.” They have been working with multiple clients for over 2.5 years and continue to work as a part time care attendant while developing Holistic Contentment.
Approximately 4 years ago, Claira began volunteering as a caregiver for Sara Sunshine. After several months, she decided that she wanted to found an inclusive caregiving business with goals for individual and community support. Claira recognizes their personal strengths and areas with opportunities for growth, and therefore has not been afraid to ask for help. Part of this asking includes working on building bridges with others who have further experience in ethical and sustainable business development and administration. Claira looks forward to continuing to manage Holistic Contentment and help the business to grow into a source of enrichment for individuals and community.
CNA, Caregiver, Teammate
My name is Seth Hofer, and in the photo you will see my beautiful Partner Laurie and myself.
A little bit about me:
The most important thing in my life is being out in nature.
My favorite quote is: Hold onto what is good, even if it is a handful of dirt. Hold onto what you believe, even if a tree that stands by itself. Hold onto what you must do, even if it is a long way from here.
My favorite sport is baseball.
My favorite hobby is photography.
I have been in the field of caregiving for over ten years. I was called into the field to make a difference in the lives of others.
I am kept in the field by wanting to be a part of and not apart from my community.
I choose to be with Holistic Contentment because I have the opportunity to work with a great team, the company is flexible and client centered.
My caregiving strengths are that I am compassionate, fun loving, dedicated, determined and reliable.
Shanti is our wonderful mascot.
Shanti embodies many of the things we aim to be and helps us to stay mindful that with patience, thoughtfulness and care we can all be empowered and thrive.
