Lisa Stember, MS CCC-SLP realized the need for Aging with Advocacy LLC in 2021. However, Lisa’s journey as an advocate, care giver and healthcare provider began at age one year when her college age sister became a quadriplegic from a car accident. As a young child, Lisa learned how to empty a catheter, operate a Hoyer lift, do wheelchair transfers, and light her sister’s cigarette from the stove burner! After receiving a master’s degree in Speech and Hearing Sciences from University of Washington, Lisa entered the field of healthcare; working in hospitals, nursing and private homes and outpatient clinics as a licensed speech language pathologist.
Both personally and professionally, Lisa has seen what a health trauma, a sudden or chronic disability and the aging process can do to an individual and their loved ones. She is here to listen, support, advocate, guide, find resources and make educated recommendations. All services are provided with Lisa’s care and 30 years of professional experience in the neurological changes that come with dementia or a brain altering condition (eg stroke, brain injury or disease process)
