About Melissa

Im a highly motivated trustworthy individual. I'm compassionate and dependable. Very much liked. I got into caregiving by accident at the age of 13 when my grandmother got ill. All my family had jobs with long hours so I started tending to her at the hospital. When I wasn't at school I was with her. That's when I knew that my calling was to tend to the elderly. I look forward to the knowledge each and everyone of my patients instills in me. I'm proud of my reputation. I'm also proud of all the great things my prior patients & their family have to say about me. It's all the reward I need.
