DeAndra Bradley, Service Administrator

“It’s my job to make sure nothing falls through the cracks,” says DeAndra Bradley, who has been with Marisa Home Care since 2015. “I keep the day-to-day details organized and handle special requests from clients.”

DeAndra, who currently serves as service administrator, adds that her previous Marisa roles as caregiver and on-call supervisor have prepared her well for working with Marisa clients, family members and employees.

Beginning her career as a direct care provider to mentally disabled men living in a group home, DeAndra realized her ability to compassionately work with people in difficult situations was a very special skill.

“The men I worked with in the group home had suffered neglect. I would make them holiday meals and take them on outings to the park; they became part of my family. Because I have been in the caregiving field for so long, I know what people need and I have empathy for what our clients are going through.

“I am still helping people in my role as service administrator,” DeAndra adds. “I’m just helping them in a different manner.”

DeAndra stands whole-heartedly behind allowing people to stay in their own homes to be cared for, and appreciates working for a company that recognizes the needs of the elderly and those who are recovering from surgery. “I like to make a positive  difference in people’s lives,” she says. “And I can do that working at Marisa Home Care.”

When DeAndra’s not working, she enjoys listening to music, especially Rhythm & Blues and “Oldies But Goodies” like the Isley Brothers. Her favorite pastime? Lounging in the grass on Belle Isle and being refreshed by breezes wafting over the Detroit River.
