This month we honor Lisa W.  Lisa has been with Family First Home Companions since July 2022.  She has helped clients afflicted with dementia, cancer, and other chronic conditions.  Lisa’s clients have described her as someone who is very compassionate and who genuinely cares about the people she helps.  One example of this is when Lisa played oldies music for her client and danced with him to lift his spirits.  Lisa also has been very flexible with her schedule to accommodate her clients when they have doctor appointments or other important events.  She has also jumped in to help the agency when other shifts needed to be covered.

We are so proud to have Lisa on our team and so grateful for the wonderful work she does and her dedication to her clients.
