About Missy

I am very funny I am very outgoing I speak my mind I thoroughly enjoy doing this job which I don't even consider a job I truly feel that God put me on Earth to take care of are seniors who can't take care of themselves like I said in one of my job descriptions I feel this career chose me and the way I look at it we need to treat our senior citizens with respect because if it wasn't for them none of us would be here and we all someday will be older and in need of someone to take care of us and I'm just hoping that whoever takes care of me treats me like family like I treat my clients

Growing up being the oldest of 6 siblings I had to be the caregiver due to my mother working long hours as a nurse. In my adult life I've had many jobs but no fulfillment until I started caring for others. I found my purpose and calling. I truly enjoy/ love being a caregiver it brings so much joy and self gratification. My mother played a big part of why I love being a caregiver. seeing the love she gave and the return love was something not to mention I had to care for my siblings. To know that a client feels safe and trust me with their care means a lot. To see them smile or just help them through a rough day knowing that they can count on me is a great reward. I've had a client I had just started with ask me, Is this just a job or do you care? I care about what I do. This is one of the biggest question that a client or family member has when looking for a caregiver. I smile all the time, staying positive, go beyond the call of duty, compassionate, caring, outgoing, patience,. etc. To have the opportunity to care for your love one or self would be a privilege and a blessing.
