About Melissa (Cathy)

I've always loved being around people and trying to bring a smile to their face. I enjoy working with older people because to me they've got some of the greatest wisdom, amazing personalities and are the full of history better than history books. I have personal knowledge in working with Alzheimer's and dementia patients. I have taken care of cardiac patients ranging from A-fib ,congestive heart failure to quadruple bypass. I I enjoy and keeping their bodies moving with a little bit of exercise fit for their situation. I have a certification in CPR an associate's degree in science and have been certified as a CNA 20 years ago as well as went through a medical assistant program in 2005. I am the mother of two high-spirited an amazing young men ages 23 and 20. My from his son moved out 2 months ago. So I would like to do more to fulfill my life and doing for others and helping others gives me that for filament and joy. I plan to be moving to Mobile the end of March.
