Meet Melissa

  • Comfortable with pets

I became a caregiver ten years ago. My parents were in need of part-time assistance as each of them had an underlying health issue. I heard the calling, took FMLA-working in Child Protection Services and answered the call to help. After seven years it became apparent that they needed in-home full-time caregiver support. I moved in with them and became their 22/7/365 caregiver. Currently, my dad has Dementia w/Lewy Bodies-Parkinsonian Syndrome and diabetes. My mom has Stage 4 Colon cancer and several thoraxic herniated discs of which surgery was unsuccessful. My dad has no use of his legs and very minimal use of his arms though they are weak. I assist him in sitting, standing, moving him to and from his wheelchair-bed-toilet-bath and bed. Both of my parents are requiring a much higher level of care and it is now become necessary for me to assist them financially. I chose Read more Care.com because I want to help others while also helping my parents by offsetting their medical costs. Senior care, Autism Spectrum Disorder and disAbled individuals are my specialties. I have passed the HHA (Home Health Aide) exam by a score of 100% on January 25, 2019. I have passed a 12 panel drug screen on January 15, 2019. I have a Level 2 FBI clearance (background check) as of February 6, 2019. I am CPR/BLS Certified as of February 5, 2019. I am negative for TB as of February 16, 2019.
