About Lisa

Hello! my name is Lisa. Currently, I am the Social Services Case Manager at a very dynamic Skilled Nursing Facility in Santa Barbara, CA. Our family is relocating to Santa Ynez. During my time in this position I have found my niche; working with the elderly population. My greatest strength is empathy. I will provide superior companionship. As a mother of two, I certainly know the basics of running a household. I care deeply about all my current residents, and this will translate into my future caregiving job. My background is psychology. I work well with dementia individuals. I can provide some transfers and specific ADL assistance dependent on the extent and my ability to confidently maintain safety at all times. I look forward to meeting with yourself and or your loved one.
