She said the district’s three greatest challenges and her solutions are:
Edwards-Tate said voters should select her because “As a native San Diegan and long-held North County resident, wife, and daughter I will contribute my decades of health care experience as a well-respected healthcare executive and industry leader for the benefit of you, your family and the continued success, development and stability of Palomar Healthcare.”

Benefitting Southern Caregiver Resource Center, and located in beautiful Rancho Santa Fe, this much anticipated event raised over $90,000!
According to Edwards-Tate: “Southern Caregivers Resource Center is one of the finest and oldest non-profit organizations in San Diego County, whose mission is ‘Caring for those who care for others.’ At Your Home Familycare is both honored and proud to be one of their supporters.”
SCRC provides critically needed services, supports, education, and more on behalf of the family caregiver caring for a loved one impacted by disability–including traumatic head injury,dementia,alzheimer’s, aging, wounded warriors, and more.”
Southern Caregivers Resource Center may be contacted at: (858)268-4432.
Or, online at: www.caregivercenter.org
Bill Tate and Laurie Edwards-Tate have been partnering with SCRC since the start more than 25 years ago. “As a homecare provider, I know firsthand the importance of support in the home,” said Laurie, President and Founder of At Your Home Familycare. “We frequently see caregivers’ own health and emotional well-being being compromised. Respite is critical.” Bill and Laurie are passionate about the mission and work of SCRC. Thank you Bill and Laurie for your commitment to family caregivers!
CARING magazine, published by the National Association for Home Care and Hospice, located in Washington, D.C., requested Edwards-Tate’s perspectives and thoughts regarding her key to running a successful Private Duty organization. As one of twenty-five Home Care CEO’s from across our Country, Edwards-Tate is one of seven representing the Private Duty sector.
According to Edwards-Tate: “Though I studied leadership theory in graduate school, the best education is real-world experience! It is an honor, and I really mean honor, to be included with top home care CEO’s ‘who stand for the best in their field.’ And, to be included within the same publication as Warren Buffett, Jim Cafton, Paul Newman, Mother Teresa, and other noteables is amazing. The bar has been raised higher for me, and there is tremendous encouragement and inspiration as a result.”
You may read Edwards-Tate’s leadership perspectives on page twenty-seven of CARING magazine, June 2012 edition. Additionally, you would benefit and enjoy viewpoints and research offered by NAHC’s President, Val Halamandaris, within his insightful “Leadership Lessons from Great Corporate Leaders: The Results of a 30-Year Study.”
