About Margaret

I was inspired to go back to school and obtain a degree in Healthcare Administration, due to my own son being blind and non-verbal, only to discover my real passion was working hands on. I enjoy simply knowing I am helping someone to be able to continue to live in their own home. Their comfort is very important to me. Having to take care of my own son has taught me how to be more patient, loving, understanding of others. Sometimes you have to put yourself in the other person's shoes in order to truly understand the situation. Even though I don't have a license, and I'm not a registered nurse...I have been caring for a disabled person for 19+ years, I do everything even administering medications. I have taken and passed the CPR class and I am certified. I truly believe I could be a help to someone in need of care for themselves or their loved one....Thanks for you time.

    Hello my name is Luseane but I go by Lucy when i'm working. I am a single mother and I have been caregiver for over 30 years now. I came to the United States, started a family and have been in this field to provide for them. Caregiving began as just a job and turned into something more, Its a career that I really enjoy. I love taking care of my clients and treating them with respect and love as if they were my own family. I believe I am a great caregiver because I have what it takes all around to give great care. I can cook, i'm neat and organized. I believe I genuinely make my clients feel important and care for them as I would my own father/mother or grand parents. Also I enjoy playing the guitar and singing for my clients. I believe that loving what I do only brings a sense of joy to my clients every day. It is important that everyone young and old deserves to be taken care of to the best of my abilities. If I happen to come across something new that I know little about, believe me I will do my best to educate myself and give the best service that I can possibly give.
