I came across Lise after dealing with several other senior consultants, all of whom were either located out of town or not at all in tune with what I was looking for.
Lise was a “breath of fresh air”, taking the time and patience to learn about my parents and their needs.
She saved me LITERALLY hours upon hours of time and effort by providing me referrals to senior homes that met my criteria.
To say that she knows the San Diego senior market and is very well connected thereto would be an understatement!
At all times, her ONLY concern was getting my parents located in a place that was best for them, and for our family!
I recommend Lise without reservation. You may contact me for a reference/further information about my experience at any time.
Lisa found my mother in law a palace to live in for her final days. Give us tons of information and basically took us through the whole process all without charging a dime. She seems to know everything about everyone of the homes in this area and answered all of our questions at least twice (sorry about that part Lisa 🙂 Some of them on a Sunday afternoon (sorry about that too Lisa)
The place told us they were giving us a discount because they really like her (Lisa that is) which is awesome. Thank you so much for helping my dying relative find such a perfect place to spend what little time she has left.
There is no one better than Lise when it comes to placing a loved one. I have not seen anyone work harder and never give up on the more difficult cases. Being in Senior Care myself you learn quickly who you can trust, and I trust Lise more than any other Senior Care adviser out there!
