About Lisa

After having my first child and becoming an instant caregiver, I realized I had been sitting at desks too long and missing out on life. I decided to become a CNA and create an ideal work/home balance doing what I really have a calling for and would enjoy. Having been trained in Medical Transcription, which involved pre-nursing studies, I have always been fascinated with the human body and medical field and medical language. I take pride in knowing that I am improving quality of life for people who need help, especially toward the ends of their lives. I encourage independence and point out the positives that are sometimes taken for granted by us all. I truly care about people and therefore am very selective of where I work and for whom. I want to make sure I'm going to be in an environment where my attention to detail, patience, productive but not hurried hands-on care, and careful documentation are appreciated and encouraged. I've worked in a facility with a less than ideal resident/caregiver ratio. I did the best I could, but was too busy rushing around to give the quality of care I would want for myself or my family. I am currently certified and up to date in CPR, 1st aid, food handler, TB 2-step & recent 1-step, nurse delegation (including diabetes), dementia, mental health, DD, CEU's. I am trained and experienced in all transfer equipment and techniques, and g-tube feedings, catheter care, colostomy bag. Can lift over 50 lbs, have a reliable vehicle and insurance.

    Hello, my name is Elisa I am 57 years old My caregiving started in 1995 , as my Mother became ill , I knew she would want a high level of in home care that I would personally be able to provide. As her illness became more advanced , it was important to me that she be able to stay in her home where she would be more comfortable. A few time a week turned into every day, then several hours a day. My Mothers wishes to be at home in her time of need was fulfilled . And it was a blessing and a honor to be there for her. I found myself wanting to give other families the same opportunity my Mother was given. I continued working closely with other families as well as with the IHSS of King Co. from 1995 till 2001.Then in California in Contra Costa Co. From 2002 - 2009 then , I returned back to Washington State where I have continued my work with private families. I am available to start giving the best care to your loved ones or yourself and give the same opportunity to remain safely in your home. I am currently approved, on the Home Health Care Registry . Please feel free to see a full work history upon request. References can be provided upon request. I have been given the covid vaccine .

    I am a people person and love taking care of people. At the end of the day, it makes me feel good to know I helped someone else. I tend to go above and beyond for others, it comes natural for me. Going through the training to become certified has been a personal achievement, I was nervous at first, thought it would take forever. When I finished the training and became certified I felt great, because I could continue taking care of others. I am Covid-19 vaccinated.
