Robyn Lighthammer, CDP
Founder, Chief Cheerleader, Professional Organizer & Companion Caregiver
After 29 years in Human Resources, I made an intentional career shift a few years ago to follow my passion and heart. I joined an Assisted Living & Memory Care Community in Falls Church and served as their Activities Director. I was genuinely “Living the Dream”and finally found a role that "Made my Heart Sing”. It was there that I was able to combine my passion for service to seniors with my creativity, interpersonal & organizational skills, and my vibrant approach to life!
In parallel to my professional career, I've had an equally long experience with service to seniors. At 12 years of age, I remember my first volunteer role, accompanying my mother each weekend to The Gaston Episcopal Hospital of Dallas. She and I served as candy stripers for the hospital gift shop, and it was there that my passion for service began. I continued the service journey through life and have volunteered with seniors wherever I have lived, from college to my adult years, even passing the volunteer spirit to our children. Nothing in the world makes me happier than brightening the day of an older adult who may be feeling lonely, isolated or just yearning for a friend to converse with. It is an honor and a privilege to serve our aging adult population, and I absolutely love doing so!
In 2018, I launched Companion Caregiving, as I see the need with families today, much like my own, who are simply too busy to do it all. And “doing it all” includes those critically important visits they want with their mom or dad but find themselves saying, “I just can’t fit it all in". That’s where we can step in and help! We will be there when you can't and we will have an eye on streamlining processes to make life more manageable.
We are liaisons for individuals or families looking for “a surrogate daughter & advocate" and we will serve as an extension of your family: The Next Best Thing to Family!
My husband and I have lived in McLean for 17 years. Our daughter is studying Nuclear Engineering at The University of Michigan and, our son is an 8th grader at an independent school here in McLean. In my spare time, I can be found volunteering in the community, fostering dogs, hiking and traveling and relaxing on the beach. I sincerely look forward to hearing from you and supporting you and your needs! It is my pledge that we will serve you with integrity, honor, joy and dignity; coupled with unparalleled values and ethics.
Health & Happiness Always,
