About Margaret

My name is Margaret and I am actively seeking a caregiving position. I have been with my current client for 3 1/2 years but the time has come to make a change. I am a Dementia and Alzheimer's specialist. I am experienced in Memory Care. Memory Care clients are my favorite people in all of healthcare! Though my first pick is with the Dementia and Alzheimer's clients, I have had other clients with other conditions, such as, stroke, diabetes and congested heart failure etc.. In 2011 when my ex mother in law became sick I became one of her caregivers. It was then that I realized how much I enjoyed caring for her. I do believe this is my calling. I was once offered a position as manager of a home health company. I did not think I could do that job. I was right because I need to be the caregiver not the office person. I love my job. I like everything about caregiving. I love my seniors. I love their stories and their laughter. I'm happy when they are happy. I look forward everyday to seeing my seniors. I love cooking, cleaning and fussing over my seniors, so I'm a natural at caregiving. Remember if you love what you do it's never a job. My fee starts at $25 an hour. My fee increases if the shift is split. Also would like employer to pay a share of taxes. I am currently working for $24 an hour but I am not so sure that after 36.5 months it's working. So money is not the deciding factor for me. If you are looking for an experienced Alzheimer and or Dementia CNA , I could be the one!

I am taking care of a new Memory Care client. She doesn't speak much so it's new experience for me. Playing games, doing puzzles, coloring and playing online solitaire is what we do together. I fix the lunch and cook dinner. I bathe her 3 times a week and clean the bathrooms. To me this is a quiet and pleasant home.

I take care of my senior who is 90 and has several conditions.I've been taking care of her for over two years now. I see her twice a week. I bathe her, give her full back massages, do laundry, get her breakfast and snacks, vacuum, clean dishes, change her depends, meds reminder, excercise her and walk her and spend countless hours hearing stories of her family. Her favorite thing for me to do is a pedicure and manicure and she gets both once a week. She is a jewel and is the sweetest and most gentle lady I know. Her daughter is a wonderful caregiver and is just an angel.

For this couple there isn't anything I haven't done except outside windows or wash their autos. From in the home to out in the yard, I cover it all. And I'm happy to do it! And for him, showers, cooking, laundry and so much more!
