About Melista

I became a caregiver because when my Grandma lived out the last few years of her life she was constantly cared for. She said if it wasn't for the caregivers who helped her feel more at peace she wouldn't have been able to feel at home. I personally love being a caregiver because I love to make strong connections with different people. I like knowing that the people I care for are getting the help they need. I strive for the people I help to succeed in whatever personal goals they set for themselves. My goal is to build relationships that will last while also helping one to strive.
