All Heart Home Care Heroes
Eric Barth, Veteran | Co-Founder | CEO | Director of Operations
Like many of us, Eric has seen firsthand the difficulty that people have in trying to care for a loved one. From his grandfather passing from Alzheimer’s disease and his grandmother from cancer. He could not be with her to provide the comfort he was certain they needed. It took a toll on his entire family. Having affordable in-home care was not available to the family, and it would have made a big difference to the entire family. Someone who understands the client’s unique circumstances understands the symptoms of the disease and has the right training to provide comfort to his grandparents.
In addition to the loss of his grandparents, he also lost his father from cancer. During that time, his family had a great deal of difficulty finding in-home care with the expertise to care for his father. The entire family felt alone and without hope. He knows that a company like All Heart Home Care would have made a great deal of difference.
Today, Eric recognizes the need for Alzheimer’s and cancer patients and their families to have specialized in-home care. Like many adult children who want to be there for their parents and grandparents, Eric had obligations that he simply couldn’t neglect. Distance also adds to the difficulty. Eric was in Spokane, Washington, where he was stationed at Fairchild Air Force Base. His family lived in Wisconsin.
The experiences Eric had with his grandparents and his father brought him to open All Heart Home Care. To ensure families have affordable care they require to remain in the comforts of their own home. Now that Eric is out of the military, he devotes his life to caring for the elderly in how a family member would. As a team member of All Heart Home Care, Eric provides the highest quality of client-centered, affordable in-home care.

He comes from a long line of nurses and health care professionals with the same dedication to caring that is so important to him.
Ryan continues to pursue learning and advanced development in his profession. In 2017, he passed the board of nursing, earning his certification as a licensed vocational nurse (LVN). He graduated with high honors and served as Valedictorian of his graduating class. In 2019, Ryan acquired additional skills specializing in infection prevention from working at one of the largest skilled nursing companies in the nation. He brings this skill set to All Heart Home Care’s client and caregivers in preventing infectious diseases from spreading such as the flu, pneumonia, and COVID-19 to list a few.

Victoria Lisenko, BSN, RN, PHN | Case Manager
In addition to her passion for providing care to the geriatric patient population, Victoria is also an advocate for the Alzheimer’s Association San Diego Chapter. Her compassion and understanding come in part from her own experience of seeing both of her parents’ battle diabetes and cancer. They were not prepared for the change in lifestyle or the emotional and physical demands that their conditions demanded. The care provided to her parents after their diagnosis and through their recovery took everything the family had to give. Since Victoria’s mother lives in Michigan and her father in Texas, providing care from California was exceptionally difficult.
Victoria and her family were more fortunate than some other team members. She and her family found help from local care agencies in both of her parents’ communities. Victoria knows firsthand the difference having reputable agencies to care for your loved ones can make.
Victoria is happy to have the opportunity to work with the team of healthcare professionals that make up the staff of All Heart Home Care. She realizes that each member is committed to improving lives and that they have the same dedication to giving a diversity of patients the highest quality home care in San Diego.
