About Michelle

My name is Michelle and I have over 10 years experience in being a CNA/caregiver. I enjoy working with seniors and helping those in need. I am extremely reliable and honest. My schedule is very flexible and I offer the following services, transportation to/from doctor appointments, wellness check in visits, personal hygiene/oral care visits, bathroom assistance visits, medication management, (1hr)cooking and feeding assistance visits (will honor any special diets), errands/shopping, laundry, pet care, etc. I've worked on several cases that may include Alzheimer's/Dementia(moderate/severe), diabetes, fall risk, cancer patients, severe arthritis and hospice. My strongest qualities are patience and a positive attitude. I do understand that it can be difficult caring for a loved one and I do my best to make it a comfortable experience for everyone.

I started as a caregiver after I left teaching with CPS. Caregiving has become a passion for me. I am honored to be able to help others. I take pride in having high standards, especially when caring for others. I know how important it is to keep clients in their own home. I love that I can help people, especially those in the end stages of life. I am especially proud to have cared for 2 family members in their last months/years and have learned a lot. I continue to be willing/interested in learning whatever I can. I am proud of everything I've learned and taking that knowledge with me to each of my clients. I treat every client with the same care, love, respect, dignity and privacy that I would want to be treated. Each client is unique and I make sure to tailor my care to THEIR needs/wants. I truly enjoy being a caregiver and think of it as more than just a job; it's a dedicated lifestyle. I choose NOT to get my CNA license because it would tie my hands. I would not be able to do wound care, catheter changes, g-tube feedings and changes, medication dosage, administration, and set ups, insulin shots, or most of what I have done for my hospice clients. I have been trained by various Drs, nurses, hospice staff, CNAs, wound care specialists, and staff at The Rehab Institute of Chicago. I choose to learn and take everything I've learned to better my client's life, for as long as I can.
