About Alyssa

When I was only 4 years old I lost my mom to cancer. My dad always tells me that I would play nurse when I was a little girl and I think thats why I am a nurse today. I have always been a caregiver in my family. My dad has diabetes and my step mom has Fibromyalgia. I love being able to take care of them and answer all the medical questions they have. I have always loved helping others, and thats why I love nursing. I have worked in all types of settings from home care to nursing homes, hospitals and doctors offices. I would love to help you and your family!

1. I became a caregiver through the inspiration of my late mother. She was in a vegetative state for almost 2 yrs. due to massive stroke. Reinvented myself from working in the corporate world (banking) to moving in the healthcare field. It's a different experience where one found joy and accomplishment working with the elderly. My salary rate is negotiable depending on client's needs. 2. Being a caregiver is very personal to me.. My focus is always the well-being & safety of my client. 3. Being a caregiver entails a lot of patience, compassion and experience to be able to understand every client's specific needs. . I try to keep a balance of everything I do to maintain my physical and psychological well-being. 4. I consider myself as energetic, strong-willed and resourceful. In my former job I was the lead CNA supervising 3 caregivers working 12 hrs. shift 24/7 in our client's own home. My relationship with my client & the family I've worked with has been very pleasant. Blessed to work with families that trust my work ethics and the care I provide for their loved ones.

First off, I would like to say that I very much have a heart for the elderly. I love engaging with them in conversation, and find myself drawn to caring for them. I sense that they quickly feel comfortable with me. Generally speaking, I am a very patient and compassionate person who can sense what is going on in the heart of another. I very much enjoy the process of getting to know somebody and finding out how I can best help them. I'm very attentive, detail oriented, and enjoy organizing and planning. One personal achievement I'd say I'm proud of is my flourishing vegetable garden at home.
