About Megan

I have a little over 8 years experience as a caregiver. I received my CNA from Joliet Junior College in 2008 and did private in home care for 2 years until I got pregnant with my second child and ended up having complications that put me on full bed rest. After I had my daughter I decided to be a stay at home mom. I went back to doing home care in 2015 and have been with the same family ever since. My CNA did expire due to me taking that extended amount of time off and I have never looked into if it was at all possible to get it reinstated because I never needed it. I also was previously CPR certified but that has expired as well but I would have no problem getting re-certified if need be. I have experience in Hospice Care, Dementia, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, COPD, Anxiety, Depression and PTSD. I can do meal prepping, cooking, light cleaning, run errands, transport to Dr's appts, medication dispensing, bathing, grooming, Etc. The most important thing is be there for companionship.
