About Melissa

I have been a caregiver since I was a child. My dad had polio and my mom had other physical problems so, I became their caregiver. As an adult, I have enjoyed Hospice work, working with dementia patients and working with children. I feel like helping others is what my purpose in life is. I enjoy it and love meeting and learning from new people.

    Hi, I'm Renota. I am a Certified Home Health Assistant of 20 years. I have 30 plus years experience in elderly and senior care. I started out in a nursing facility in 1989. While there, we were taught to care for total care (bed patients) as well as independent living, and high risk patients. I am very passionate about the care others because solely, I am responsible for their physical, mental and spiritual care, and I take pride in serving others. I've learned so much from the people I've worked with, and hopefully they've learned from me as well. What keeps me attracted to the care of others is the compassion I feel when I'm caring for the individuals I am with. I have a special spot in my heart for Alzheimer's became I am their eyes, ears, and their voice in this world, and I feel the need to be there for them. I am a very flexible individual as I enjoy working in my yard, therefore it makes it easy for me to assist with individuals that enjoy their yard as well, and also alleviates the fear of leaving your loved ones alone. I also enjoy pets, so there's never a problem with my being around them. I have worked well hand-in-hand with hospice care, and able to maintain records, monitor vitals, medicines and report progress to supervisor, physicians and or medical personnel as needed.
