About Colleen

I became a caretaker, because I like the feeling it gives me, and the person I' m helping . I enjoy getting to know the person I'm taking care of and spending time with them.. I achieved my associates degree in medical specialties this helps me in understanding and helping the person I take care of. I am compassionate dedicated hard working and honest person, who believes in just because people get older doesn't mean they need less help. They may need more as I have found out taking care of my one clients who has had a stroke and a heart attack. Who has been my inspiration seeing her over coming so many obstacles and finding new ones she now has to over come, but still continues to move along. I attended college getting my associates degree because I found that no matter what job I held. I always found my self wanting to help others. I will be finishing my degree soon and getting my mna, so that someday in the future I can work my up to a hospital environment.

I met with my client in her home. I assisted her in getting out of bed in the morning by gently lifting her until she was sitting up. I then help her up to her walker and to the breakfast table I made her breakfast and assisted her with her meds and oxygen. After breakfast I assisted her to the bathroom for a shower if needed that day after I would help her get dressed and assist her to the living room where I would end my day by giving her water and coffee and her container of meds she would need for the rest of the day. I would the do some light housekeeping and then end my day

I originally relocated to Santa Fe with my husband in 2007. It was part pre-retirement and also to move closer to his aging mother. I tried out a career with the TSA, but ultimately found it unrewarding. I changed careers 2 years ago to help an elderly friend. She is on a State Medicaid waiver, and had been unable to find a good fit through an agency. The agency caregivers where not allowed to care for her cat, so I came by to clean the cat box. She has no family, so a group of friends helped her get onto a self-directed waiver. I had found that working with elderly and disabled passengers was the most rewarding part of the job I was working at the airport, and was ready for a change. I am particularly proud of the work I do with this fiercely independent lady. I make all her doctor's appointments and transport her, and make sure all the paperwork for her multiple public assistance programs is filled out correctly and submitted in a timely manner. We enjoy shopping trips and going out for lunch. Since then I have also worked doing respite care and housekeeping/handywoman jobs independently. My first private client was residing at an assisted living home, but was requiring more attention than her family or the staff could provide. She was advancing in her Parkinson's disease, becoming more confused and needing help with toileting and ambulation. I ultimately helped the family find an appropriate memory care home for her. My current Carelinx client lives out in the countryside, so I help with a lot of outdoor tasks like cleaning her horse's corral and gardening. I do a lot of driving, taking her into town for doctor's appointments, Horse Therapy and shopping. I do a lot of appointment setting, help her balance her checking account, order her meds and fill the pill boxes.
