About Carissa

I have loved caring for people ever since I was 10 years old. I grew up in a huge family and when I came along my grandma was advanced in years. I watched my parents care for her at home and would help out now and then. This is where my loved stemmed from. I believe seniors are overlooked these days. I find that really sad. I believe that seniors should be treated with dignity and respect for as long as they are with us. I offer kindness, respect, caring and a helpful spirit. I TRULY love what I do. Each client I work for gets my up most attention and care. Thank you for considering me!
