  • Lisa Vogel

    President

    Lisa Vogel launched her own health care firm through a national franchise in 2008. Her dedication to providing the highest quality care was quickly evidenced by the rapid growth of the business and several national and regional awards, including National Franchise of the Year in 2010.

    To better serve the diverse needs of her expanding client base in the Baltimore area, Lisa relaunched the business as a small, privately-owned company in 2012. Continued growth led Lisa to open a second office in Bethesda, MD in 2018, serving Montgomery County.

    Lisa appreciates family. Visiting her grandparents in nursing homes as a child, and seeing how lonely they seemed, inspired her to offer better care options for seniors. She understands what their family members are going through and how important it is for them to maintain balance in their personal lives. That’s why she is so committed to providing accessible, compassionate, professional care to her clients. It’s this compassion and concern that is the driving force behind The Lisa Vogel Agency.

    Lisa has always had a passion for charity work and helping others which led her to become extremely involved with volunteering and raising funds for several charities and non-profits benefitting women and children in Baltimore. In addition, Lisa encourages her staff to organize monthly volunteer days to serve those in need in the community. Above all, Lisa is a mother to two beautiful boys, Bode and Reed, and together, they enjoy summer beach trips, practicing piano, reading new books, and traveling to see new places!

  • Timothy S. Bayer

    Registered Nurse

    Tim Bayer has been helping others since he was in high school, when he worked at an assisted living and hospice facility. That caring spirit carried through to college, where he studied psychology and began working as a counselor in a residential rehabilitation facility for adults with psychiatric diagnoses. In 2002, Tim began working as a psychiatric technician at Sheppard Pratt Health System, spending time in various units, including the Geropsychiatric and Geriatric Neuro Units. He ultimately chose to work with adult patients with trauma disorders. Inspired by the work and encouragement of those around him, Tim chose to pursue a nursing degree and graduated from the University of Maryland School of Nursing in 2012.

    When Tim saw the care and time everyone at The Lisa Vogel Agency put in to meeting the needs of clients, he knew it was a place people could trust.

    Tim, who has been working as a registered nurse with the agency for a year, hopes that his easy-going nature relaxes patients. “I want clients to feel at ease when I come to their home,” he said.
