About Melissa

What makes me a great caregiver is that I am very compassionate about the people I care for. I love to sit and talk and get a better understanding of who my client is and that is what is most important to me. I became a caregiver about 8 years ago. I wanted to be a field where i can care for people with needs or people who just need companionship. Being, a caregiver gives me a sense of pride about myself because i know that i am making a impact in someones life. I absolutely love being a caregiver. I have challenged myself in more ways then one. I have worked in many different areas such as: " dementia ward, mental illness for geriatrics and also hospice care" just to name a few.
