About Melissa

I am a mother of 3 and I also am a wife I am a people person and I have a passion for taking care of elderly and disabled people cause they are the ones that need the most help and sometime people for get about them. I chose to do this once my father in law had to have brain surgery and didn't want to go into a nursing home so I decided my self to him so he could be comfortable and not have to worry about a stranger taking care of him. Then just in 2014 my mother in law found out she had breast cancer and had to have one of her breast removed and I been there the whole way through . I do this because I love people and it takes a person with a big heart to take of people as if they was your own and that's how I am with everyone. I am proud to say that ever since I have been taking care of both of them my mother in law hasn't have to do kemo therapy and my father in law talks and remember better. I also had the opportunity to take care of my mother in law mother and grandmother befor they passed due to old age. the most important thing to me about being a caregiver is I get to help other out assist family in any kind of way to release some stress off of them. I take pride in what I do and I treat others like they are my family and will be treated with respect and taken care of properly.
