About Stephen

I come from a lineage of caregivers. My mother is a registered nurse like her mother before her. Its in my blood. I gain personal satisfaction from seeing the quality of life of those I render services to improve. I have over six years of experience working with clients with a wide range of conditions including geriatrics, total care individuals (colostomy bags, feeding tubes, Foley catheters), children, persons with mental & physical disabilities, as well as persons who have been institutionalized, & have a history of substance abuse & addiction. In my tenure in this field I have provided counseling, been an advocate for the disabled & disadvantaged, worked with individuals in meeting their short term & long term goals while helping them gain confidence within themselves & foster their own identity within their community.

    $15.00/hour · Ozone Park, NY
    My name is Melvin. I'm a father of four. Since I came here in the US, the job I searched for was aligned with taking care of the elderly. When I was growing up, I was exposed to taking care of relatives that are sick or need help in everyday living. And when my mom was diagnosed with cancer, I was the one who took care of her. I love taking care of those who are in need of assistance and companionship. I hope, given a chance , I can show my potential to future caregivers seekers. :)
