About Latasha

Providing excellent customer service to patient and family, loyalty, and being dependable which are some of the many reasons I consider myself a great caregiver. I'm compassionate and patient to all my patients' needs making sure I communicate with the patient and family ensuring proper medication and care guidelines. Growing up observing my grandmother care for her mother in home inspired me to become a caregiver not only to my family but to other families as well. I wanted to be great and successful at this so I decided to get the proper education needed for Alzheimers and Dementia and how to cater to their needs. What I enjoy most about being a caregiver is the smile I leave on my patient's and family's face after my work has ended that shift. Receiving my certificates in the health field, becoming dependable and reliable to those that are in my life work related or not.
