About Markitta

I love working with elderly people because they are fun, sweet, understanding, and resourceful with offering advice. I love learning new things from them. I really enjoy listening to their stories from back in their younger days and how their children were as kids. I love when they smile and laugh its very interesting to both me and them. I miss my grandparents and working with seniors reminds me of them, they were very dear to me. I have a tendency of getting attached to them as though they were my own family. I love seeing them smile and I have a way of making them laugh. I love happiness. It makes me feel good knowing that the assistance and care that I provide for them keeps them satisfied and happy.

$25.00/hour · Latrobe, PA
My name is Shantell. I am a proud mother of three wonderful adult children and blessed with three amazing grandchildren. I have been working in health care since a young age, starting off being a health care aide for my blind grandmother at the tender age of 8 years old. From there on I found my passion in life. During my years as working as a personal care aide, I had the opportunity to take care of my parents during their last days. In doing so, I was able to gain a personal insight on the importance of having the right person taking care of your loved ones, which gave me an even greater passion for the work I do. I realized the importance of giving each and every person who I take care of the same love and care as I gave my loved ones while taking care of them. As well as the respect and honor to have the opportunity to be a part of their life.
