About Cherisse

I became a caregiver when my aunt needed care, and we had trouble finding a suitable caregiver for her needs, after she passed, I kept taking on other clients, and eventually started working for an in home caregiver company. I enjoy being a caregiver, because I get to help bring back a sense of stability to someone that has lost independence. I like to feel like I can make a difference in someone's life, and help them enjoy the small things in life that we take for granted, until we can not do them anymore. I currently work for an in home care company. The laws will change as of January 2015. I will not be able to work the hours I am use to, so I will need to find a second client outside my agency. I would like to be able to work with both clients.
