Meet the Jeffers of Right at Home | Inland Valley
Terry has a background working in sales and marketing with major corporations. He developed an interest in senior care after watching some of his grandparents go through the dementia process. The experience made him realize that he wanted to work with others to help them get through the same challenges. Another grandmother, who lives on her own, fell and broke her hip. He witnessed how important it was for her to have extra assistance after she was discharged from a skilled nursing facility and sent home.
Lisa worked for the California Department of Social Services for 12 years in the disability evaluation program. She also worked in licensing for group homes and assisted living facilities. While working for the state part of her responsibilities included conducting abuse investigations and testifying at hearings. She worked closely with Child and Adult Protective Services, Alzheimer’s Association, the District Attorney's office, law enforcement, hospice agencies, the medical community and other agencies to protect and promote the health, welfare, safety and quality of life of each person in care.
Terry and Lisa have a dog named Houston and a cat named Seattle who make visits in the community and spread smiles and joy!
Why Home Care?
The Jeffers have a genuine sense of caring and compassion for seniors and disabled adults. While conducting abuse investigations, Lisa witnessed the gamut of provided care, from the most heinous acts of abuse and neglect, to the most nurturing and uplifting relationships. They find it extremely rewarding to be able to help this vulnerable population and in doing so, give back to the community.

She is also the Chair of the Inland Empire’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s and Terry has been the emcee for the event.
