Meet Marissa

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.
