About Myisha

I became a Caregiver because I am a gifted service oriented person and I enjoy helping and encouraging people to do and feel their best when they happen to be dealing with physical and emotional challenges in their lives. What I like about being a Caregiver is the one on one personal interaction with client or resident. I get a joy out of hearing personal stories about their past and present life and watching the client/resident beam with excitement in telling their story. Or if it isn't an exciting story, but rather a sad one, they seem to be comforted by my attentiveness. A personal achievement I am proud of is completing my CNA course with High Honors. I enjoy reading and learning, specifically Holistic Health and Nutrition. Traveling is a love of mine, so I have taken a few cruises over the years and have visited a few States. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends.

    My aging mother who suffered from early-onset Alzheimer's first opened my eyes to the challenges of caring for an aging parent. I attended seminars, took courses and got my Nursing Assistant certification to care for her. I learned a lot of patience and tactics for working with the elder population. One of the joys and, I think, one of my strengths as a caregiver is providing companionship , stability and finding fun and meaning in unlikely places.
