Care is There Geriatric Care Management is operated by a group of like-minded people whose goal is to provide quality care and access to the necessary resources. Every month, we’re shining the light on the people who make Care is There what it is – a group united by that common goal.
Our fifth installment of Team Spotlight features Lisa Hoekstra, our community resource coordinator. Lisa’s name may be familiar to our blog readers as she prepares, writes and publishes our articles for us on a near-weekly basis. We took a moment to ask her what it’s like working with Care is There.
How long have you been working at Care is There?
I started working with Care is There in June 2013, though it feels like I’ve always been a part of the team!
What do you do at Care is There?
I work with the Elizabeth, Lauren, Ginger and Desiree on creating website content (writing provider profiles and adding them to the careisthere.com); writing and publishing articles on The Caregiver’s Secret, Cville Seniors and Harrisonburg Seniors; posting content to the Care is There Facebook page; and preparing the monthly newsletter, which is sent to subscribers in Central Virginia (spoiler – we’re also working on preparing the first Kansas City newsletter… very exciting times!).
Little promo here, if I may! If you’re interested in subscribing to the Central Virginia newsletter, you can enter your email on The Caregiver’s Secret home page – the right-hand column, under the video.
What is the most satisfying thing about working at Care is There?
I love the fact that I can use my passion for writing to provide people with the information to help their loved ones. It’s very satisfying to know that someone, somewhere in Virginia or Kansas, might use the work I’m doing as a reference to ensure that their grandmother, aged father or even partner is getting the assistance and service they need to live their lives to the fullest. It helps that I work with a fantastic team at Care is There – everyone is very dedicated to helping others to the best of their ability… it’s inspiring!
