About Melinda

Taking care of others has always been a passion of mine, from family to friends. Becoming a nurse 17 years ago, gave me the fuel to be able to bring quality care, companionship, and helping patients become great advocate for their health any many ways. I dedicated myself to private duty several years ago, after my clients passed on, I thought I wanted to be back in the field again. I miss it, I want to be able to know that my one on one care is not being taken for granted and that the ones that I care for know that their concerns, mental, emotional, and physical status is priority, along with giving their family a sense of knowing that they made the right decision allowing me to care for their loved one.

I became a caregiver simply because I've always enjoyed taking care of people. When I was a little girl, I would take care of my mother when she became ill. She always encouraged me to become a nurse. Being a great caregiver is having compassion, a desire to ensure the well being of others and being dedicated to providing excellent care. I'm extremely proud of having four successful years of homecare experience as a Certified Nursing Assistant and I'm hoping to acquire many more.
