What I like about being a Caregiver is the diversity of my clients, everyone has a different story and background. I love to listen about their lives, accomplishments, family and loved ones. It's like watching a Classic tale of another time and these stories become part of my life, parts not to be forgotten. I love to put not only my heart into my work, but my sensitivity, compassion, laughter,attentiveness and honest character as well. I have worked with some challenging cases like Alzheimer's, Cancer patient's, Stroke patient's and other types of illnesses. I am thankful for the opportunity to have worked with and known my patient's, not just as patient's, but we became friends as well, and I was there when they needed me.

Hello my name is Resse. I would like to share a little bit about me. I have 20+ years experience in home health care, hospice, special needs, and CPR/first-aide certified. I have been blessed enough to work with all types of families and ailments from bed stricken to special needs and is very passionate about all that I do and always willing to go the extra mile. I worked in the Newport news public school division with special needs children for over 15years and I have a business license in cleaning. I've always been described by my clients as, "heaven sent us an angel". I also took care of my mother until she passed. She had seizures, kidney failure and was on dialysis, also bed stricken. I prepare meals, great companion and love children. I am no stranger to hard work and I genuinely love people, tremendous experience in dementia, alzheimers, and medication management as well. I am honest, devoted, compassionate, trustworthy, reliable, dependable and detail oriented. God bless and thank you in advance for a great opportunity. A great caregiver is someone who is kind, compassionate, and loving by nature. A generous, sensitive spirit can't be taught only given by the Creator Himself. Caregiving found me. The elderly, children, and animals bring joy to my heart. If I can bring a little peace and comfort into the life of another person I feel I've done what the Master called me to do.
My career as a caregiver began by working in a nursing home facility over a year ago. I worked with respiratory patients, wound care patients, dementia patients, HIV patients, hospice patients, Alzheimer patients, and handicapped patients who had all of their faculties but because of missing limbs were unable to stay at home. I learned to give very basic to advanced care. While the level of care changed the one thing that remained constant was the need for a kind word.
I was often asked to go into a room and communicate with a difficult patient because there was something about my calm voice and gentle nature that turned every tide into smooth sailing.
I left the facility because it was heartbreaking. It should have been a place where every worker enjoyed working there. Instead finding someone who enjoyed their work was a rarity. I believe private duty will be much more fulfilling.
