Lisa joined the St. George Home Instead Senior Care staff in January 2014. She enjoys visiting with family members who are contemplating in-home services for their loved ones, whether they're a parent, grandparent, or other relative.
She has a special insight as to the emotional dynamic they are faced with, as her own mother suffered from dementia until she passed away. Lisa was both the daughter and the caregiver. As her mom's dementia progressed, Lisa found it necessary to hire someone to step in to assist her mom so she could continue to work full-time.
This experience with her mom has enabled Lisa to be empathetic with the families that contact Home Instead Senior Care. Lisa truly cares about the clients and what they are going through as they age, and what their families are dealing with.
Lisa also enjoys interacting with the caregivers employed by Home Instead Senior Care. As the trainer, Lisa is able to pass along insightful information because of her first-hand experience as her mother's caregiver. She has a passion for providing exceptional caregivers to the clients. This desire is evident as she interviews, hires, and trains each caregiver.
Lisa loves living in Southern Utah and serving the elderly as well as their families. As a mother of three children and a daughter of an aging father, Lisa is convinced that the adage "it takes a village" not only applies to raising children but includes the opposite end of life's journey.
