About Melanie

Hello, My name is Melanie. I am a Arizona state certified caregiver with 10+ years of experience. Looking for the right caregiver takes time. The fit need to be a good one for all parties involved. What is important to me is treating my clients with dignity and respect, protecting their privacy to help alleviate embarrassment or anxiety when showering or bathroom use. I have experience with diseases and conditions such as MS, Parkinson's, Dementia, Alzheimer's, Cancer, stroke, paraplegic etc. I can provide companionship, bathing & dressing, feeding, meal prep, med prep, staying active, and mobility. Knowledge of medical equipment such as a Sara steady and the hoyer lift. I have worked with a variety of age groups and different levels of care including skilled nursing. I have a background fingerprint clearance card, CPR trained and a clean driving record. I have taken courses on Alzheimer's and dementia, Elder abuse, Hospice & palliative care, Infection control and Autism. I held a management position (hospital) and have had my own business but decided to go back to what brings me the most joy, helping others. This is my true passion and one of the reasons I'm a happy person. I am 56 years, kind, patient, dependable and trustworthy. Thank you.

I worked with a 71-year-old male who had MS, Later diagnosed with Parkinson and eventually state 4 liver cancer with a 90% bowel blockage. I helped with range of motion, physical therapy, and all activities of daily living. Eventually, helped my client eat and with incontinence care. The Hoyer lift was used for showers until that was no longer an option. He became bedridden and had to be repositioned often. I am still working with this company although there are no clients currently in my area.
