Lisa Adamek MSN, GNPWelcome to my wellness education and caring space.

My name is Lisa Adamek. I am popularly known as the 'expert geriatric nurse practitioner & educator' and that is because wherever and whenever you meet me, I am usually coaching, teaching and or educating a patient, a family caregiver or a health care professional.

I work with professional families who are involved in caregiving and senior care communities who care for complex, chronically ill adults. I peel away the stress from family caregiving by providing compassionate guidance, patient education, care navigation, complex care management and access to resources and options for safe, graceful aging and wellbeing.

For the senior care communities, I offer caregiving staff education and skill set development that promotes safe care, employee engagement, retention and resident care satisfaction.

When I was a child, many people referred to me as an old soul. Out of all the characteristics of us 'old souls' the one that has the stronger pull on me is that of being 'connected to people'.

Sometimes, I think that is the reason that I went to graduate school and specialized in working with older adults. I have served my community as a graduate level geriatric nurse practitioner for over twenty years. In the process, I have identified three problems faced by older adults and those who care for them.

  1. The struggle for older adults to remain independent at the place they call 'HOME' without intervention from others even when there is a need for care.
  2. The fragmented health care system that makes it challenging for families to navigate the continuum of care while their aging loved ones maintain good health and receive adequate care.
  3. Low continuity and quality of care when the caregiving staff is unskilled, unmotivated and not engaged in providing quality care.

These three problems create significant gaps between geriatric wellness, safe care, vitality & independence especially for older adults whose loved ones are far away. I have combined my knowledge of nursing, my education in geriatric health, my love for people and my passion for education into a service for those communities who care of older adults and families who want to avoid the role reversal, enjoy work life harmony while their aging loved ones thrive wherever they choose to call home on their own terms regardless of any life limiting conditions .
