About Melinda

I love Being a care giver because I can help someone in need and help out families in need of my assistance to care for their loved one. I started doing this because my nana had dementia and my family needed the help with her so I stepped up. I have also worked with a Parkinson's client and a stroke client. I love being someone they can count on, feel safe with.
