About Melissa

I became a caregiver because my grandmother who I helped take care of when I was 16 yrs. Old she had strokes and dementia I seen first hand the good and the bad. I knew if I was a caregiver I would take care of them like I did my grandma. I like taking care of the elderly I would take care of them like I would my grandma. i got told I had a act for it. I've been told by my patients i was a good nurse. I've took care of many people and I'm currently doing that now.A achievement for me is a patient I'm currently taking care of ppl said he was angry, he tells me he is happy to see me and that I'm the best nurse he has ever had because I treat him as a person not as a condition.
