About Melissa

Hello, my name is Melissa and I love the elderly. I feel a passion to encourage them and value them in their later seasons of life. I worked as a professionally trained Home Caregiver for years and also worked in the office to recruit, hire and train other Caregivers and Certified Nursing Assistants. I have been volunteering in Nursing Homes for twenty years, most recently at Annadale Village in Suwanee. There I faithfully visited the same gentleman for three years until he passed. I am on the Care Team at my church and visit the elderly in our church who are not always able to make it the services. I am reliable and work with excellence. It would be my joy and honor to serve your family.
