Nest & Care congratulates Ciana Cheung, our Superstar Caregiver of the Month for September 2020.  Ciana joined our family at the height of the current COVID-19 pandemic.   She is a young, sweet, and compassionate caregiver who is well-loved by all of her clients.  Her clients look forward to the time she comes to work with them as they enjoy her company. 

As a caregiver, what motivates her to do what she does day in and day out is the satisfaction she gets from seeing a smile on her client’s face and hearing them say they appreciate what she does for them.  She is currently taking a break from school but will pursue an RN program in 2021.  She hopes to become a Pediatric Oncology Nurse one day.

Young and adventurous, Ciana is not afraid to try new things.  Before COVID-19 hit the US, Ciana enjoyed indoor skydiving and bravely ziplined across the beautiful Niagara Falls!
