About Michelle

I have always been a compassionate person to others, helping where I can, assisting my elderly neighbors as I was growing up, but never realizing it was a name for this and it's called Caregiving. I became a Private Duty Caregiver after a family member became very sick, and there was no one who was willing to assist her. I liked the idea of helping her, meal prepping, making sure she had what she needed to function on day to day basis. Even when she had to go into a facility I was there for her until the very end. I like knowing that I am bringing a smile or some form of hope to a person's day. My personality is like no other, whatever it takes to offer a glimmer of hope ie dancing, singing, reading, preparing a meal with love or simply something simple as taking an interest in them and learning who they are, or who they were brings me joy as well as them. I love listening to their stories I refer to some of my clients as "Living History". I am a mother to 2 college graduates. When I saw my daughter walk across the stage to get her Master's I realized I gave both my children all that I had in me as a single mom. My Greatest Achievement was going back to school and obtaining an AA in Human Services. I was given up for adoption at birth and I had wonderful Foster parents and I always said I wanted to give back what was given to me. By becoming a Care Companion I cannot think of a better way to give to others what was so freely and lovingly given to me. Time, Compassion, Morals. Consideration, Empathy & Love.
