I have been a Caregiver in a variety of situation for 6+ years and each family I worked for called me a "member of the family"! What makes me a great caregiver? I'm extremely attentive, patient, have a calming effect on people, am trustworthy, an excellent listener and willing to work with each individual's specific needs. I became a caregiver when my father was recovering from lung cancer & had knee surgery. He required extensive care regarding mobility, physical therapy, meal planning/nutrition, prescription management, & hygiene. Additionally, he needed to know that someone really cared about him & the progress he was making. I am a very positive person with an optimistic outlook on life! I believe this is instrumental is helping one recover from any condition, physically, mentally or emotionally. I had an extensive career as a Director in Human Resources in my corporate career, where many of my transferable skills are utilized in providing care for individuals. I'm passionate about working with seniors, as I have been all of my life. I have a heart for those who need care, may be lonely, or are in transition from home or family. I love seeing changes in the lives of others when I attend to them with their very specific needs. I'm adaptable, easy to talk to & get people talking, so they begin to feel a connection with others, rather than isolated or alone. I've provided care to my grandfather, whose life was transitioning painfully with bone cancer. One of my greatest achievements was to see his pain managed not only through medication, but listening to him recall his life's stories, reading to him his favorite, National Geographic, & providing him with all the personal touches that alleviated the inevitable suffering that comes with this type of cancer. I am certified in CPR, First Aid, AED, and BLS. I will care for your loved one just as I would one of my own parents, with understanding, being present and available for whatever they need.
Everyone needs companionship, and all of us need a helping hand every now and again. Unfortunately, these needs are often heightened for elderly adults. Many seniors struggle with elderly isolation, a condition that is strongly linked with poor emotional and physical health. Other seniors have to cope with age-related difficulties, which make it hard to perform everyday tasks and activities. I offer companion care services that provide the social interaction and helping hand many seniors need to live happily and comfortably at home. Companion care is perfect for elderly adults who live alone or far from family, providing the company, conversation, and security of a dedicated care companion. These services can also be a lifeline for seniors who no longer have the energy, motivation, or physical well-being to live comfortably without assistance. Seniors aren't the only ones whose lives are improved by this type of care. Family caregivers can find respite, relief, and peace of mind by hiring a care companion!
I am a very empathetic and passionate person when it comes to taking care of others. I love my job as a nurse, but just need some extra hours. I enjoy keeping my patients company and also helping with daily activities. I also am willing to stay overnight. I have an 11 year old son, but he can stay with my parents any time that I am working. I come from a great family and I am very family oriented.

Throughout the years, it has been a blessing to work with families by helping them with their loved ones. One of the main reasons I continue to be a caregiver because I love seeing how God has put me in a position to work through me to care for others. I enjoy establishing relationships with my patients and their families and working together to provide the best care for their loved one. I have been doing this for over 10 years and every patient I had the honor of working with has been a blessing in their own way.
Hello my name is Manica Leon and I have been a Certified Nursing Assistant for 15+years. I love and enjoy taking care of people. The people I care for often times become more than just a patient, they become famliy. I also took care of my paralyzed mother for three years after an awful stroke. Being a Certified Nursing assistant is a rewarding and humbling field for me. I always try to encourage my patients to never give up and know that things could be way worst. I give them a positive outlook on the life they currently have and that they are loved. If your looking for someone who is compassionate, loving, understanding and is passionate about what they do please give me a call you will not regret it.
What makes me a great caregiver is that I am dedicated to whatever I do. I feel very peaceful within myself, when I can make my patients/clients and their family pleased. I have 23 years of experience in the medical field. I achieved a certification as a NurseTechnician/CNA and is currently enrolled in the University of North Georgia to pursue a BSN in nursing, because nursing is a passion for me. I enjoy very much to help all people, expecially the elderly. I am very proud that I can be a part of a team that cares to see people enjoy a healthy life, and if they cannot stay healthy as they would like to be, that we care for them in the best way possible. I took care of my grandmother until she took her last breath, and that motivated me to care for others the same. She gave me her blessings before and that made me proud to continue.
I have been in the medical field for years, working with the elderly and very good at bringing smiles into the lives of the people I work with, I am very passionate about what I do, loving & enjoy every bit of my job. I treat my clients as my family, giving them top class service.

My grandparents, as well as my great-grandparents, made a very strong impression on me. I enjoyed spending time with all of them in the summer. Goodness, kindness, and unconditional love from my sweet relatives taught me to be loving, caring, and considerate of my elders. After doing volunteer work at nursing homes, I really felt this was my special 'calling'. Now, I enjoy each and every day, learning from the elderly people that are in my care. I have been driving to Atlanta and Marietta for the past 4 years, as well as Woodstock and Canton. Distance is not an issue for me. Hope to hear from you soon!!
