Lisa Bellows

Lisa Bellows, Weekend On-Call

Lisa has been our main weekend on-call backup for several years now. The office may close at five, but we know our job doesn't stop there. Having a true 24/7 accessibility is one of the things that sets us apart.

"Got an issue at 10 pm? Don't hesitate to call. I started as a caregiver here at Home Instead and I know that our client's needs don't occur neatly between 9 and 5. So, please call. You'll always find a real voice here on the other end"

We know it's a comfort to our clients, and also to their families that we are the eyes and ears, always on watch, when they can't be. Lisa is the reason we can confidently say, "Call us anytime!"
