Lisa joined the Windward Life Care team in early 2018. She graduated from San Diego State University with a Bachelor’s degree in Social Work (BSW). Lisa has had 20 years of social work experience with older adults, including in the areas of intensive case management and adult day health care. As the Windward On Call Care Manager, Lisa responds to urgent situations on weeknights, weekends, and holidays, assisting clients and families with their concerns, and providing support to Windward’s Home Care Aides. Healthcare advocacy, crisis intervention, family caregiver support, and resource linkage are all part of a day’s (or night’s) work for Lisa.
“When I was in high school, I knew I had the desire to work in a field where I could help people. I decided to focus on medical social work because I come from a family that has had many health challenges. I had to learn the health care system in order to be an effective advocate and caregiver for my loved ones. As my parents’ health care needs increased, I decided to shift my professional emphasis to working with the elderly population. Helping older adults overcome the obstacles in their lives in order to achieve their goals has always been my passion and will continue to be for many years ahead.”
