Letter from the Owner
It is a pleasure to introduce myself and my key staff to you. We at CareMinders® Home Care, view it as an honor to take care of you and your loved ones. We are committed to providing assistance that improves the “quality of life” for our clients which is evidenced by our gold seal of accreditation from the Joint Commission; recognized as the highest accreditation agency in the healthcare industry.
At CareMinders® Home Care we strive to relieve that nervous tension and anxiety that goes along with choosing the right agency for you or your loved one. We have been in business since 2006 and nursing is our passion. Our local management team has over 150 years of combined home care and nursing experience. My personal and professional experiences as a registered nurse and nurse practitioner over the last 26 years have taught me that every client’s needs are unique. Every care plan is made by a registered nurse after an extensive assessment, and the caregiver is hand selected and trained to meet those unique needs.
Our 24/7 accessibility, and team approach bestows confidence and trust in our supervision and care. We understand that inviting a caregiver into your home is a major decision that involves a high level of trust. We operate our company using the highest standards from the toughest rules and regulations in the country. We utilize an industry exclusive 12-point background screening process to give you assurance that our caregivers are of the highest character. Please take a moment to read our testimonials. They speak volumes of the care that we provide.
Our philosophy “Your Comfort, Our Responsibility” is not merely a slogan; it is a personal commitment from us to you and an indication of the way we conduct ourselves and our business on a daily basis. We are here to serve you and your family, so please do not hesitate to call us to discuss your needs.

Our Management Team
Lisa M. Reisman, RN, CPNP
I bring 26 years of nursing experience and leadership to my team and business. I received my Bachelor’s in Nursing from Emory University in 1986. I continued at Georgia State University receiving my Master’s in Nursing in 1996 as a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner. In the 1990’s, my father became ill and he needed caregivers. I was dismayed at the quality of care I found. At that moment I knew I needed to bring my compassion and sensitivity from the pediatric population into the geriatric population. I have always strived to make a difference in every life I have touched. Nursing is my passion. It is my desire to light that passion in all my caregivers and nurses so that their delivery of care is unique and unprecedented. I believe the greatest gift to anyone is to assist them in living their life as they wish…independently in their own home.
I have lived in the Sandy Springs/Dunwoody area since 1997, with my husband and three boys.
