About Melissa

I began caregiving to a elderly man when I was just eighteen. His daughter was a friend at church . She thought I would be a good companion for him for the summer, while she worked. I enjoyed helping him and getting to know him. As years went by I would help my husband grandmother and care for older family members. In 2009, I found myself with an opportunity to care for an three different individuals . I got to know and help some very interesting people and love it. I love to encourage people and make their day a better one. \

    I believe the care given to patients and the ability to care for others is a gift that I possess. I'm originally from Cincinnati, Ohio. I moved to Jacksonville 26 years ago. I'm energetic, fun, loving, caring, compassionate, trustworthy, and dependable. I have wanted to be a nurse all my life. I now have the opportunity to do so. I became a Certified Nurse Assistant to begin working with patients while still enrolled in college, at Florida State College Jacksonville. I enjoy what I do, and love meeting new people. In the six years I've been a Certified Nurse Assistant I have had the opportunity to meet some beautiful people. I will continue my education until I become a registered nurse. CNA License 217918 BLS (CPR & AED) Certified First Aid Certified as well

    I have taken care of my parents and I would treat my clients as I would have done for my parents they stayed at home and were cared for in the comfort of their own home. You have to have compassion and treat clients with respect and dignity. Always let them feel they are still independent not treating them like a child. I had my own Adult Family Care Home and I specialized with Dementia residents. I am a dependable, caring and loving individual and I would never treat them any less or make them feel any less than the adults they are.
