About Lekeitha

I've been in this field for awhile, I took care of my grandma who has dementia/ Alzheimer's. From that point I've made this a career most of my work since high school has been caring for elderly and adolescence who aren't able to be alone or do there daily life activities.. I had one group home I worked for and my clients would make me feel so welcomed and appreciated. They would make me a special card every Christmas it meant so much to me. I love being a big part of someone's life and making sure they are as independent as they can be.

There's no better feeling than knowing you or a loved one is safe, comfortable, and happy. I know; I was a primary caregiver for two family members before becoming a Certified Nursing Assistant. Helping others is more than a job to me. It's my calling. With more than a decade of experience in home health care, I understand the importance of being warm, compassionate, patient, understanding, competent, reliable, and punctual. During these difficult times, being Covid 19 safe is paramount, too. I am extremely vigilant about precautions, like mask wearing, frequent hand washing and sanitizing my vehicle. I offer part-time assistance with personal care, medication, light housekeeping, errands, and companionship. I also provide hourly driving services for medical appointments, hair salons, or grocery shopping. My rates are based on hours, location and frequency of visits. I look forward to hearing from you and assisting your needs.

I enjoy helping and taking care of people who need it. I love listening to the wisdom of my elders! I also just love bringing happiness and some sunshine into someone's life! I have been a Medical Assistant for 28 years, for 18 of those years I worked in 2 different Urology offices, 5 working in an ENT and Allergy office. I am currently working in a Family Practice office. I have enjoyed working in each office and established a great rapport with the majority of the patients I have encountered, as well as there respect and gratitude. I also worked in Home Health for a brief period. One of my clients hired me to continue taking care of her mother, which was extremely gratifying to know she was so pleased with the care I provided and trusted me to continue taking care of her mother.
