Hi, I’m Risa. I’m a clinical psychologist, mother to a neurodivergent son, and granddaughter to a (now deceased) Alzheimer’s sufferer. I’m also a friend to many other parents and adult children of special needs individuals. My friends and I have struggled with entrusting our loved ones to the care of someone who does not and cannot easily get to know them. And, when we do leave them in the care of others, we feel a constant gnawing anxiety that prevents us from being able to truly relax.
This lack of trust breaks my heart. Trust is at the heart of every genuine connection and genuine connections nurture bodies, minds, and spirits. There’s really nothing more important than that. But, when it comes to our vulnerable loved ones, establishing trust with those who provide them care is difficult.
So, I created SeeInMe for:
Parents whose stomachs twist in knots each time they entrust their precious children to caregivers who know their diagnosis and little else about them,
Parents who can’t sleep at night due to worry over their vulnerable young adult children yearning to establish greater independence,
Adult children who cross their fingers and say a prayer every time they leave their beloved parents at a residential facility,
Caregivers who want more than anything to make a positive difference in the life of a difficult-to-reach person, and
Administrators who know they employ a caring staff and who want to empower them to deliver personalized care.
SeeInMe is headquartered in the middle of America’s Heartland, in a town called Lee’s Summit. I’m always happy to make genuine connections and if you reach out to me, you can bet I’ll send a personal response.
Thank you for stopping by.
Founder/CEO of SeeInMe
