I have been providing in-home caregiver services since 2002. I have cared for elderly people with moderate to severe medical conditions such as Parkinson's, Alzheimer's disease, ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease), diabetes, heart conditions, dementia, patients recovering after surgery and under hospice care. My medical background and excellent command of spoken and written English give me confidence in handling the demands and challenges of in-home care. Years of experience allow me to adapt quickly to specifics of a new case and to help the client and family members to work out a desired care plan that would encompass recommendations of medical professionals and the client's personal preferences. In addition to providing assistance with activities of daily living, serving as client's home care advocate is a very important aspect of my job as a caregiver something that I take pride in.

Asta was my mother's primary caregiver for the last four years of her life. She is very organized and helped greatly with coordinating my mother's household and care needs between herself and two weekend caregivers. She is a great communicator and kept all medications organized, accompanied my mother to medical visits and developed logs for all of my mother's health care needs. She cooked nutritious meals following the dietician's guidelines, kept the house clean and sanitary and made sure that my mother, who had limited mobility, walked every day. She was very flexible, adapting to my mother's ever increasing care needs as her dementia progressed, and made sure that the other caregivers were always briefed on new developments. She is meticulous and is very concerned to provide the utmost in care.

I am looking for Full Time work . My story is about a 67-year-old man who only needed a housekeeper twice a week. His illness progressed with time he was diagnosed with Parkinson's and dementia, due to his illness he now needed help full time. Although care giving isn't for everybody I gave it a try . The first thing I did was educate myself about Parkinson's disease , the medicine and side affects . Working for him on a daily basis learning more about Parkinson helped me to prepare for what was to come and how to help him now. He became like a family member to me and my kids(now are adults). I took him doctors appointments I had the pleasure to help him for six years. His wishes were to stay out of nursing homes and hire enough people to keep him at home to end. I'm caring , honest , respectful , hardworking and I will always respect you. I look forward to meeting you!

It was a delight to have Marissa care for our mother throughout her employment with our family. She was sociable and compassionate towards our mother. Marissa is very creative by thinking of various ideas to keep our mother engaged and active at her level of ability throughout the day. Marissa was able to maintain proper documentation on administering meds as well as provide regular updates on our mother's day to day activities. Marissa was very responsive and willing to go above and beyond to provide the best quality of life to our mother.
