About Lysa

I have over 28 years of caregiving experience and a heart for others. Especially those that reach a place in life, where care becomes needed. Part of my overall caregiving experience includes: Handicapped care, dementia, Alzheimer's & memory challenged clients. Hospice care, medication assistance & reminders and helping with all sorts of mobility needs. I am also individually focused on monitoring clients needs, and/or changes, along with companionship. I can provide personal transportation and assistance to activities and appointments, including doctor appointments, as well as pre & post-op surgery care. I offer experienced caregiving in all aspects of life and I truly enjoy working alongside families and my clients for all the different reasons care becomes needed. I love to laugh and also help my clients laugh, smile and enjoy their lives, no matter what phase of life they may be in. Making others comfortable and at ease with every person and their families are of utmost importance to me, as each are very unique and special. I am organized, detail oriented, a multi-tasker, prompt, trustworthy, creative, dependable and also a non smoker. My goals will always be, seeing those I care for and their families quality of life improved, stress relieved and working with individuals and their family's to make that happen. Thank you for considering me, Blessings, Lysa
