Meet Irene

For 10 years, I have worked as a caregiver. I have taken care of clients with all types of illness such as stroke, cancer, dementia, Alzheimer's disease. I can cook, give baths and medications, walk, and whatever it takes to make that person comfortable and to give comfort to the family knowing that I am there. That person is treated as one of my own family members. I am compassionate and loving; I have excellent work ethics. I have worked with Elderly who have Dementia and Alzheimer's and patient who were critically ill in a Private home setting, Nursing Home, and Hospitals. I can help with cook, cleaning, run errands, Doctors Appointment, transportation, etc. I am delighted to answer any questions you may have. I am certified in CPR, First Aid, CNA, and HHA certifications. I am currently working part-time at Shady grove Hospital as a Nurse. Moreover, I am currently a college student at Howard Community College majoring in Nursing. You may contact me if you have any questions.

(This is an updated review.) Our connection with Irene (who goes by Melisa) got off to a positive start. In our 3 weeks together, the issues we encountered -- communication challenges, late arrivals, and then an unannounced absence -- seemed inconsistent with the references we checked, and with her dynamic & kind personality, but created a problem for our care plan. We updated this review because Melisa said had been in a car accident and that her phone was damaged. She said she couldn't reach us to let us know that she wouldn't make it. We were relieved to hear that she is safe and glad that she took the time to offer us an explanation. It's very possible our experience was an outlier so please keep this in mind about our review. In sum, open and clear proactive communication about expectations by both parties would have helped all of us. We wish Melisa the best moving forward.
