Meet Lisa

I have worked in caregiving both in homes and in residential/group homes with varying levels of developmental disabilities, close to 20 years now. I currently see a 14-year-old boy on weekdays with cerebral palsy and other conditions. I worked 2 years with an 11-year-old with CP, but due to positive family changes, my position has changed to PRN status to allow more integrated family time for them with no staff present. I have worked with most ages and disabilities, with various physical and developmental conditions. I have used various lifts, will perform transfers,... more
I have worked in caregiving both in homes and in residential/group homes with varying levels of developmental disabilities, close to 20 years now. I currently see a 14-year-old boy on weekdays with cerebral palsy and other conditions. I worked 2 years with an 11-year-old with CP, but due to positive family changes, my position has changed to PRN status to allow more integrated family time for them with no staff present. I have worked with most ages and disabilities, with various physical and developmental conditions. I have used various lifts, will perform transfers, and am familiar with care for individuals with traches, g- or j-tubes, seizure disorders, etc. I am CPR/AED certified.

Due to my current client being in school, we follow school schedules and holidays, so when he is out of school for the summer or other days, I am usually needed there during the daytime instead of the evening. I have worked 7 days a week for a long time, so I prefer to work occasionally, or for part of a weekend so I can have a day off most weeks. I am willing to work every other weekend or one weekend day.

If you have any trouble reaching references through the website, please message me on here and I will provide their contact information directly. Thanks!

Ginger R. says:
Lisa looked after me for a couple days after a surgery. Lisa is wonderful. She picked me up from the hospital, drove places to get food, picked up tea, medical supplies, open water bottles and whatever I needed. Very easy to talk to. Her words of encouragement gave me the mental boost I needed heal from my operation.

Chuck and Cindy S. says:
Lisa has cared for our autistic teenage son a number of times. Just as the site advises, in-person interview shows when the caregiver truly has chemistry with these types of kids. She is gifted with interacting with our son and is able to diffuse any tantrum. Lisa is able to understand when our son is joking and teasing, which pleases him endlessly to effectively interact with others.We have never left our... More

Lisa L. responds:
Thank you guys!!! Personally I feel you have both done a great job keeping your son as part of the family and not isolating him from communication and activities. I enjoy spending time with him.
