About Nicole

Hi! Welcome to my page. Let me first tell you alittle about myself so you can measure if I would be a perfect fit for your family/ loved one. I've been in healthcare for over 10 years working in different settings from Rehabilitation, Nursing homes, Chiropractic care to individuals with disabilities. My roommate in College has Cerebral palsy so I helped her daily with your needs. I'm very familiar with many other disabilities as well. I am happily married now just wanting to offer help for others. I understand completely wanting to meet me first before so you can decide if I would be a good fit. That's no problem at all. I have recently submitted a back ground check so I can show proof of my clean history. I genuinely love people and helping others is my passion in life. I have worked as a Medical Assistant for agencies in the past however I find this way allows the family to choose who they feel most comfortable around. I have graduated with a Degree in Human Services with a minor in Disabilities. I'm an open person so your welcome to ask me questions or concerns you way have about myself. Enjoy your day! **Available on Friday's after 12 and Saturdays **

Hello my name is Myeisha. I've been in this field professionally for about 2 years but I took care of my grandmother for a few years. I just love being a helping hand. I take my job very serious. I do not slack. I love being an aid not only to the elderly but to people of all ages.

I've been a caregiver for over 5 years. With such experience, I've learnt that offering assistance to someone who cannot do for themselves has its rewards - it is greatly appreciated from the person being helped and that is great fulfillment for me. I've also chosen to do this because I'm a nursing student with an interest to specialize in geriatrics.
