About Porshay

I became interested in being a caregiver when my grandmother got sick. I wanted to do whatever I could to keep her health sustained. After helping her I was interested in helping more people like her. I then took on a stage 4 cancer patient as his in home hospice caregiver. After him I did a full time live in with a 72 year old gentleman with many health issues. He was able to walk with his walker again after doing physical therapy with him every day. I truly enjoy helping people who are no longer able to help themselves.
