Lafawndra Allen – Texas Direct Support Professional of the Year

Austin, Texas, caregiver Lafawndra Allen has been helping people live their best life for more than 25 years! Her extraordinary level of care and people-focused attitude are things that make her a one-of-a-kind caregiver.

Lafawndra has been able to impact numerous lives throughout her caregiving career, but she’s also been able to save lives. For instance, when an individual ended up in the hospital and later in hospice care, Lafawndra was there every step of the way. She spent hours at the hospital advocating for the person. She also jumped to the individual’s aid once released under hospice orders.

Within five days of leaving the hospital and receiving continuous care from Lafawndra, the individual was doing so well he no longer needed hospice. Almost a year later, the individual continues to thrive and live his best life, thanks to Lafawndra!

Lafawndra was also a BrightSpring LEGACY of Care award-winner in the E – Environment category.
