About Melissa

I've been in health care for over 20 years in all aspects of medicine from rehab, long term care, emergency room/trauma ( many floors in the hospital until I finished paramedic school) to taking care of my own father with dementia until he passed a few years ago. I know live alone as my son is in college and I have more free time. I love animals and also volunteer at local vets with sick and injured wildlife.

I am a very happy, positive, caring, reliable and compassionate person. I love and enjoy giving Care to those who finds it difficult in staying at home or recovering from surgeries etc. I love the communication of my senior who love to speak of their past life. I have achieved the task and experience in caring for a loved one when that occurs for either of my parents.
