About Michaela

I am a Navy Veteran. I received the Purple Heart for my efforts in Afghanistan. I've also received multiple Navy medals and achievements while serving in Iraq, Kuwait and here in the states. I have learned to be patient, compassionate, thorough, very dependable, trustworthy, honest and attentive. I am a wife and a mother of two beautiful daughters. Zoey is twelve and Makenna is ten. My husband is still in the Navy. He is a Submarine IDC (Independent Duty Corpsman) and he makes me proud everyday. I love my family and me working as a caregiver makes them proud as much as it makes me proud. I love being able to say I help people for a living.

After being a stay at home mom for 20 years I figured the next step should be to help out the elderly. I have been a caregiver (certified) for over 15 years now and absolutely love it. There is nothing more satisfying than seeing the smile and or relief on someones face when they have someone to help them. Whether it is to cook them a meal, help pay bills or just go to the grocery store so that they dont have to. My greatest work was working at the Hospice Care Center for over 2 years. Working with whole families in their time of sorrow was so rewarding. I recently became a grandmother for the first time and love spending time with him. I love doing jigsaw puzzles with my clients or just sitting and listening to their life stories. I am highly trained in all aspects of care giving. I am able to provide short or long-term care (up to 48-hour shifts. Private Duty Nurse Delegated Caregiver Available. I'm available one time or long term as you need. Are you looking for an educated and experienced caregiver? One who is available to provide compassionate home nursing and living assistance for the elderly, including surgical recovery, and dementia care patients? I'm able to assist with daily personal hygiene, showers, transferring and dressing care. Will prepare nutritious meals, (including feeding if required) cleaning, laundry, shopping, errands, as well as kindhearted and upbeat companionship.
