Lisa Mayfield founded Aging Wisdom® in 2003 recognizing early in her career that problem-solving and thoughtful, personalized care management were what most people needed, not therapy, to address the challenges and concerns of aging. When she discovered geriatric care management, she immersed her herself fully in the profession, and Aging Wisdom was born.
Aging Wisdom is an Aging Life Care™ consulting, care management and creative engagement practice that strives to bring peace of mind to families by both directly improving the quality of life for aging family members, and by providing consultation and coaching services for their families.
As a member of the Aging Life Care Association, Lisa has met stringent education, experience, and certification requirements and adheres to a strict code of ethics and standards of practice. She is an award-winning care manager and holds the distinction of being one of two Fellow Certified Care Managers in Washington State (the other Fellow is her business partner and co-principal Jullie Gray).
Trained and licensed as a Mental Health Counselor, Geriatric Mental Health Specialist and a Certified Aging Life Care Professional, Lisa brings over two decades of experience in mental health and vast expertise working with clients and families affected by Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias. She is also a trained mediator and has worked for many years supporting families in conflict.
It’s not all about work. Lisa strives for balance in all things and finds it through traveling, walking and yoga, as well as time with family and friends.
