Meet Melissa

My experience as a caregiver has been strictly personal. My father suffered a ruptured brain aneurysm 10 years ago and my sister and I are now his primary caregivers. He has short-term memory loss and his executive function is impaired. I prepare food for him, help him shower, give him meds, and help to keep him entertained (taking walks, playing games, etc). While I do not have professional experience, I feel that this experience has prepared me to care for others. I am an incredibly patient and caring person and I would love to help out other families that are possibly in the same position as my sister and I. I understand how difficult it can be to care for an aging parent or family member and I understand how important it is to have support. I would like to be that source of support for families as well.
