About Cynthia

I have always had a passion for helping seniors even as a very young adult. I cared for my grandmother with love and patience, but always with the respect and dignity that she deserved. I feel most comfortable when in the caregiving position. My strengths are empathy, compassion and patience..always with a smile! I am very reliable and punctual. I have extensive experience working with seniors in many different capacities, from parkinsons, MS, alzheimers, dementia, stroke, and wheelchair bound. I have worked in hospital settings as a CNA, nursing homes, hospice centers, and assisted living centers. I helped with all ADL's, including bathing, transfers, errands, meal prep, toileting, light housekeeping and engaging in social activities with clients including walks, cards and games! I would love the opportunity to help your loved one remain independent in their own home while providing safe care and companionship to them! I have a current fingerprint clearance card and am CPR certified!

I feel "Care" is the most lightly taken word. "To care" doesn't just mean to supervise someone physically, it goes beyond that and it takes a very emotional yet strong person to take care of someone else who doesn't just need a shoulder but also a little smile, and loads of fun. That's how I took care of a couple of people, my family and non-family (who eventually became a part of my life). I care about people the way I would expect others to care for me and that makes me a better caregiver. I never took it as a profession until I came to the US and accidentally did a couple of assignments, which made me realize that I am good at it. I am compassionate, have a pleasing personality, an inquisitive mind, a curious soul and blessed with an untiring smiling face. I can be a chatterbox or NOT (depending on the person's mood), can talk on different topics, a very good listener (love listening to the stories and experiences), creatively driven, love cooking (my previous clients can vouch for it :)), a coffee drinker and love weight lifting. I am a learner and never leave any chance to pick up something from others' experiences. I am a content/ digital marketer by profession, a wanderer, a nurturer and learner by nature. In short, I truly care about people and capable of connecting with them at different emotional levels. Last but not least, I come with great recommendations and I am very proud of it :)

Hello and thank you for taking an intrest in me. My name is Melissa. I have been in the medical field for 18 yrs. I started working as a medical asst and then went on to become an EMT in 2001 I started in home health care in 2003 when I lost my mom. I saw the level of care she recieved and how it impacted us as a family and I wanted to help someone else in the same way.. After being a caregiver for so many years I can honestly say I love what I do! I love being a part of team! I have lots of glowing references . I enjoy taking care of others and have been that way my whole life. It brings me joy to know I made a difference for someone.I would love to have the chance to give excellent care for yourself or loved one. I am reliable, friendly and have extensive knowledge in dementia, cancer patients, MS , behavioral disorders, stroke, after surgery care, and hospice care. I look forward to meeting you!
