Lisa is a native of Staunton, VA. She was first introduced to the world of Medicaid waivers when her best friend, who was like a brother to her, became disabled after an illness. Trying to find help for her friend, Lisa contacted a high school classmate who was a Case Manager with a local hospital and thus began their journey. She was a caregiver for her friend for almost nine years. After his passing, Lisa went on to serve other clients and to join Moms In Motion as a Family Resource Specialist.
Lisa knows first hand how the program makes it possible for people to live in the comfort of their own surroundings, to be active in their community, to empower their lives, and to enrich the lives of all the people with whom they come in contact. Lisa does her best to help other families receive the help they need as a way to honor the memory of her dear friend.
Sheila has deep roots in the Augusta county area of Virginia. She has encountered various situations that have instilled in her the value and importance of a community full of services, as well as resources, to individuals and their families living with The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) defines a person with a disability as a person who has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activity. This includes people who have a record of such an impairment, even if they do not currently have a disability. It also includes people who do not have a disability but are regarded as having a disability. The ADA also makes it unlawful to discriminate against a person based on that person’s association with a person with a disability. More.
Sheila and her husband were legal guardians and advocates for a lovely boy with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome for seven years. She knows firsthand the great need and awareness of any available resources to help families in similar situations.
Previously, Sheila has worked as an attendant caregiver for her stepfather during his last precious years of life. The services available to him allowed Sheila to see the beauty that these services provide. Through his Medicaid Waiver, as well as services provided through Moms In Motion, her stepfather was able to be in the comfort of his own home, surrounded by those who loved him. The available resources, along with the support of Hospice, allowed for his final wishes to be granted.
Sheila's mother is currently receiving these same beautiful services provided by the A Virginia Medicaid waiver program that provides services to elders and people with physical disabilities in the community (as opposed to in a nursing home) to prevent the premature institutionalization of these groups. Services available via this waiver include assistance with the Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) and Instrumental Activities of Daily Living (IADLs), such as bathing, grooming, dressing, light housecleaning, preparation of meals, and monitoring of medications. More program. She is thrilled to help connect other consumers to these and other available resources through Moms In Motion.
