About Lakesha

I have provided home care for 15 years for people of all ages with mental and physical disabilities as well as the elderly population. I have been a CNA for 8 years and I am QMAP certified with the state of Colorado. I am a patient person and highly detail oriented. I know that life does not work according our schedules and plans, so I try my best to provide peace of mind for those that I care for as well as for their loved ones. I love caring for others and I find it a privilege to be able to do so. What I enjoy most about being a care giver is that I am able to help others continue to live a comfortable, satisfying quality of life.
