About Missy

I have worked as a Caregiver/Home Health Aide for roughly 10 years now and work mostly with High Acuity Care patients. I am interested in expanding my clients and taking on more hours as care is needed. I have a very strong connection with people and love to help others. I have experience in bathing, showering, oral care, Hoyer lifts (manual and electric), Dementia care, end of life care, meds, vent and trachea care, repositioning, range of motion care, hospice care, companion care, etc and more. I pay close attention to details, and provide peace of mind to families knowing that their loved ones are in such good hands. I have extremely high levels of patience, understanding, guidance and comfort for those in need of care. I like to build personal relationships with those that I am caring for. I am very committed to my job and very independent. I am always open and willing to learn and try new things and work best hands on. I believe in Working stronger not harder. I became a caregiver when I started helping take care of my sick Father at his home before he passed. I noticed then, it takes a very special person with such a kind heart and compassion to care for such venerable and once independent individuals. I have chosen the Home Care Field directly over lots of different job opportunities. To work in the Home Care Field for me, directly, is a great one on one experience compared to Facilities that just don't have enough staff to cover every individual and give them the proper care they need. It's better for those individuals in a facilitated home or hospital to be Alone or refuse care, rather then have a caregiver hate there job. I have great References and am staffed with two other medical staffing agencies. I am contingent right now as needed care comes available. I would love to be your caregiver and help you with whatever care is needed. Please message me so we can set up a time to meet and discuss the care your in need of. Thanks
