Caring for Veterans With Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

Tamisha Taylor

Tamisha Taylor was just 17 years old when she began caring for her grandmother. While Tamisha had a natural ability for caregiving, it was not something she had considered doing as a career. But when Tamisha's grandmother was on her deathbed, she encouraged Tamisha to go to school and get certified, which was a hard request for Tamisha to refuse. She followed her grandmother's advice and became a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA).

Now, more than 20 years later, Tamisha has dedicated her life to caring for others, like veterans. During her seven years with Right at Home in Beverly Hills, Calif., Tamisha has cared for a total of five veterans, and she still cares for four of them. While she has no formal training in working with veterans suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), her personal experience with her own grandfather — a World War II veteran who also suffered from PTSD — has helped guide her through sometimes scary experiences.
