About Tykiah

I can customize to anyone's care and make ones I care for my main priority. I am a great listener and treats the ones I care for like family. I have the desire of helping the ones I care for progress in anything they want to get better at. I became a caregiver when my great grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. It took a toll on my family so I started researching ways to care for her. Thanks to her I had the experience to work in an assisted living facility helping seniors and young adults with many different conditions. I love to see the reaction on family members face when they see progression that their loved ones had made. Becoming the person who a client look forward to seeing walk through the door is why u became a caregiver. My personal achievements is getting through school as a biology major.
