About Lisa

I became a caregiver because my grandmother had cancer and I wanted to learn how to take care of her, she was a survivor for 40 year, I admired how the nurses and the patient care techs took care of her. So I wanted to give back. The best thing I love about this job is seeing the transformation of ones being. It brings joy to my heart to see someone smile and laugh. I have a private duty case now and the daughter said her mother is so happy now and enjoy when I come a take care of her that is a personal achievement especially when you are taking care of someones mother. My name is Lisa Council I am 49 years old but I look every bit of 29, I am outgoing and love to have fun with my residents, they are such a joy. I have no children, but I am married. I am also a licensed cosmetologist and medical assistance, so I do spoil my residents. I pamper them male and female.I have been to college haven't received my degree yet but I am working on it. I presently work at Piedmont Newnan Hospital on the Orthopedic floor.I reside in Palmetto Ga. I am looking for that one on one care instead of 18 patients as a load, It pays well but I am not getting the satisfaction of what my purpose is for doing direct patient care. That is why I choose to do Private Duty.

I have been involved in in-home care giving for over 25 years because I like helping others. I believe that a person is happier and can be better cared for at home than anywhere else, and I have worked and trained to help make that happen. I have also been involved with clients in the hospital, a senior home or assisted living facility, in a rehabilitation hospital, and under the care of hospice. I like preparing nutritious meals, planning activities, and participating in good conversation. I am interested in sports, plays and movies, board games, jigsaw puzzles, and arts and crafts. I also am an avid reader. Though I really enjoy cooking, occasional dining out is also fun.
