Experienced in caring for individuals with special needs at their home for 7+years. Cared for and assisted elderly woman with daily living skills at her home for 6 months and provided excellent companionship until her death. Acquired my Associates Degree in Human services/Mental health. Volunteered at Menorah Home and Hospital as a companion. Have a great love for my superiors (seniors) and deep respect because I was taught this from my Heavenly Father Jehovah. I am also taught not to cheat people out of their time and not take advantage of anyone being one of Jehovah's Witnesses.

Hello! My name is Elissah! Current caregiver at sunrise of Monterey! I am looking for a job similar to the one I have but more inclusive! Where I am working we usually are assigned 10 residents or more per care manager! I am super bubbly, gentle, compassionate and love to help! When I first started working at sunrise I met a resident who made an impact on my life, she recently passed away. I wish I had the time to get to know her more but with 9 other residents to tend to during my shift, it seemed impossible! When I was looking into this type of career I wanted to be able to have that time to do just that. However since she passed I can't help but want to do more! I don't like the feeling of caring about someone and being with them everyday to only find out I didn't truly know them! I grieve, even when I've only had one conversation with the individual! I'm not sure where I am going with this but I just know I want to do more! And with one on one care I believe I can do just that! And more!
