About Melissa Brooke

Hello, I have my associates degree in medical Assisting and worked in in a Pulmonary and Sleep doctor's office for 6years. I have been doing caregiving since 2010. I have worked privately and for a company. I prefer working privately and feel the care I can give can be more personalized and more specialized depending on what the client needs. I love being able to take of people. Seniors are my favorite cause they have so many stories and just need someone who is willing to listen. I will treat your love one as if they were my mother, father, grandma, it grandpa. Thank you for the chance to get to know your family.
