Lilian is originally from Ghana, where she grew up with four sisters and 3 brothers. She came to America to find a better life for her and her son. She has been a caregiver with Life Force for a little over two years, even though we feel like we have had her for a lot longer.
Growing up with 7 siblings, Lilian learned to cook at a very young age. One of her favorite things to cook is rice. Lilian's current client loves her cooking and eats everything she makes. She also learned how to sew and has been a seamstress since she was 16 years old.
Before coming to work for Life Force, Lilian was a seamstress and worked in a hotel in New Orleans, LA. She would give the tips she made at the hotel to the homeless that she passed on her way from work. Lilian has a huge heart.
Life Force Caregivers for the Elderly has provided personalized live-in custodial care to hundreds of seniors since 1989. A live-in home health aide is an alternative to an assisted living or long-term care nursing facility by assisting with activities of daily living right in the comfort of your own home. While conducting the initial assessment of a client's needs and expectations, families naturally ask questions about Life Force's services. One question that sometimes arises is: What is the advantage of working with an agency like Life Force over hiring our own private aide?
When choosing between these two options families normally make a decision based upon price. Hiring a private aide is typically cheaper than working with a licensed agency, but a private caregiver easily becomes more costly in the end.
