About Me

I am a personal assistant and companion who helps clients with their non-medical needs, including transportation, errands, meals, and the like. I've had many different experiences in my life but I found that helping people is what I have always enjoyed. For about 15 years, I worked in the non-profit field, and for 4 years, I worked as an Executive Assistant to the Director and one of the founders of The Clear View School in Briarcliff Manor, NY. When my mother was diagnosed with dementia, I oversaw her care. I felt like it was tremendously gratifying and it was a bonding experience. After that, I thought that I would like to contribute to working with the elder community. I have been working as a companion since 2012. The most important thing is to be present and I love to see the joy on the faces of my clients when I enter the room. I know that they need to be listened to and they need to be heard. I like to be there for them, especially when their adult children cannot be available all of the time. I love my clients and they love me; we form a tremendous bond. I go above and beyond for my clients. I'm warm, I have a good sense of humor, and I try to bring laughter to my clients. I am very amicable. Some of my interests include reading, walking, and being social. I really love art, and I once worked as the director of an art gallery. I also love New York City.

Recommendations

" Lisa has been my mother's companion once or twice a week since mid-2014. In the past, I'd found it difficult to get someone she likes, but she likes Lisa a lot. Mom lives in an independent living facility, but does not drive. They spend the day together and Lisa will help mom in her apartment and will take her to lunch, to the mall, or to the supermarket. She is a caring individual who takes her job seriously. You can tell that she enjoys what she's doing and that makes her good to be around. She's an excellent communicator with me and very trustworthy. I would recommend her highly."

" Lisa has been caring for me for a about a year. She is absolutely adorable. She is more of a companion to me. She takes me shopping, she drives me to doctor's appointments, she prepares my meals and we eat together, and we go out for walks. She is a special lady. She is a great listener and is very good about looking after me and reminding me of the things I need to do like taking my medication on time. She is very reliable and I can always count on her to be on time whenever I need her. I enjoy her company. The reality is I have nothing but the best to say about Lisa, I'd be lost without her and I am very lucky to have her. "

" Since a stroke has left my mother unable to drive, she has needed my help to continue living independently and to continue her daily activities outside of her home. Even though I try to be available for her, I work part time and have a busy schedule which often creates conflict. Lisa has been working with my mother for about a year now, starting in 2014. My mother has become so comfortable with Lisa and enjoys the time she spends with her . My mother understands my schedule and she often calls on Lisa instead of me to help with transportation or to help do things in her home. Lisa has been a godsend to both of us. Lisa is warm, caring, honest, and above all, reliable. We feel blessed to have found her."
