Lisa's Companions and Caregivers, Personal Assistant Services
Our Owner and President
Lisa earned her Bachelors degree in Business Administration and her Masters in Gerontology from Penn State. From there she worked at numerous hospitals, nursing homes and assisted living facilities. It was then that she realized that most seniors wanted and needed to stay in their own home. When her own grandparents required assistance at home but did not require the type of managed care at a nursing facility, she was determined to allow them to remain in their own home as long as possible or until they could no longer care for themselves. Lisa then set out on a personal journey to locate the perfect home care agency to care for her grandparents. Navigating through the daunting home care process and after hiring a multitude of home care agencies for her grandparents, she still had not found any that truly had her family's best interest in mind. She finally realized that the perfect home care agency did not exist. She decided to change that and founded Lisa's Companions and Caregivers in 2003. From then on, she yearned to create the "perfect home care agency" where the caregivers would truly care for and about the clients and listen to their wants and needs.
Soon after, she realized it was standard in the industry to be assigned a caregiver, any caregiver and not one that was matched to your individual personal needs. Lisa understood that to procure a successful relationship between caregiver and client, skills were not enough, and personality and compatibility play an even more important roll. She then decided to meet each and every client and caregiver and match each one together to achieve a perfect combination. Only then would this client-caregiver relationship be successful.
From her own experiences and speaking with many seniors today, the expense of remaining at home is a major issue. Lisa noticed there was a demand for caregivers who provide non-medical in-home care services but many could not afford it. Having her own company allowed Lisa to provide excellent caregivers to seniors at affordable prices. To this day, we continue to keep our rates affordable so that every senior is able to receive the care they deserve. We currently have the lowest prices in the industry.
Lisa's Companions and Caregivers distinguished itself early on by tailoring our services to the needs of our clients and by having one of the strongest screening processes in caregiver selections. Our reputation for providing exceptional quality caregivers at an affordable price as well as excellent customer service has set us apart in the industry and led to the success of our agency. We were just voted the Best Home care agency in South Jersey by the Courier Post and Gloucester County Times for 6 years in a row and we have excellent references to prove it.
