Dr. Lori Harper

Lori is a Clinical Psychologist at Villa Caritas.

Clinical Psychologist
Villa Caritas

Growing up, Lori had a great relationship with her grandparents, who were positive influences in her life and taught her a lot about aging. It turns out that this relationship had a significant effect on her choice of career. Lori loves working with older adults and she has worked in geriatric psychiatry for 20 years. She loves the challenge of sorting through the complex mental health issues that older adults present with at Villa Caritas. She respects that the older adults she works with have a wealth of life experience and she appreciates the sense of humour many older adults display, even when they find themselves in difficult situations. Lori’s goal is to help older adults maintain their independence as long as possible.
