About Melissa

I am an easy going, patient home health aid with over nine years of experience in the field. Assisting a beloved senior while hearing them tell a great life story or silly joke is what I would most look forward to as their care taker. Taking the role of friendly neighbor for an individual, without over stepping my boundaries is my style. If you are looking for a reliable companion who can cook you a great meal while respecting dietary restrictions and who can help keep things in your home tidy please contact me!

I love being a caregiver/CNA. I've been a CNA for over 25 years. It gives me alot of pleasure taking care of the elderly. I'm a very caring & compassionate person. The reason why I started becoming a caregiver was because my brother just got diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. I used to take care of him before he went into the nursing home. I'm very hard working & enjoy listening to my clients history, for example where they are from & what they used to do for a living. I would treat your loved one like I would my own with up most respect. I really enjoy getting to know my clients & I feel like they are part of my family. If I can make them smile & laugh then I know I'm doing my job because some of my clients don't have much family or friends & they get very lonely & depressed. My personal achievement is taking care of sick & elderly patients.
