About Zakiya

Hi! I'm a Compassionate, attentive PCA that provides consistent, quality care. I became a caregiver in 2011 after caring for my family member who suffered a stroke.

I understand the needs of the family and the procedures of the healthcare industry. Experienced in working with clients who are recent hospital discharges, Alzheimer's, dementia, incontinence, stroke, PT, and hospice. Household Management Experience: maintaining calendar, scheduling and dealing with trades, vendors and contractors, procuring equipment, supplies and services as well as doing general cleaning, laundry, errands, organize and manage household inventories and budgets. Worked in private estates, nursing homes, assisted living, and independent living facilities.

I am a happy go lucky walking miracle whose overcome much physical adversity myself. At one point in my recovery I was put on 280 mg's of morphine. I have a great outlook on life and so much empathy for folks who suffer with new limitations and cant get around to do all they used to. I love helping people, it's a gift. I've helped folks throughout my life in different areas from ministerial, case management to the homeless to advocating in legal channels for those to overwhelmed to do so. I'm an artist, a writer and a lover of people. I treat folks with love, compassion, dignity, respect, just like family. I've recently finished writing 2 books exposing human trafficking in America. They are currently being edited for publication and I am certain this will help save many children from such a tragic fate. I am a selfless type of person whose always concerned about those in my life. I'm an empty-nester. I enjoy being the sunshine in someones cloudy day. I have a convertible so sunny days are always more fun for me and I love a nice Sunday drive after church. I would welcome any questions, just shoot me an email or call. Thank you for your time and consideration.
