About Lisa

I am a very upbeat and positive person. I feel I was put on this earth to help others whenever I can. I always go out of my way to be kind and assist others however I can. If someone needs to just vent, I will listen while giving them all my attention. I want them to feel they are my top priority, because they are. I have worked with people with mental illness and addiction issue, bipolar and then there are the medical issues....these people need love and someone to be there for them, to spend time with them...sometimes just to be "present" for them. Give them the integrity they deserve and if they are on their way out of this place, let them know they matter and can move on if that be the case.

Experience & Education

Caregiver

Mar 2016 - Present
Jeff Jones
Care for severely handicap 19 yr old male. He is totally dependent on others: diaper changing, feeding, dispense his medications, bath/personal care and companionship. He spends his day either sitting in his wheelchair or on the floor, so I get on the floor with him and love on him as much as I can. He is a very loving and lovable young man who loves back rubs and being talked to. He is very personable, even though he is unable to communicate. He is always happy and smiling. My heart loves helping others and making sure they are taken care of and treated with integrity. I do not care for him full time, only occasionally and sometimes over night. He is a very big boy, as I do not transfer him to vehicles or into the tub.

The Lighthouse was a discipleship home, created by local Christians of various denominations, united by the vision of offering women being released from prison a supportive Christian environment and the assistance needed to successfully reintegrate them back into society. We are strictly supported by donations of faith. I customized a circle of support for each resident in areas that they need help in, such as Bible study, discipleship, job skills, managing finances, developing healthy relationships, transportation and legal issues.
