Hi, my name is Monica. I am originally from Oregon but after my high school graduation I went to Idaho on a full ride scholarship to Boise Bible College where I studied Intercultural Studies. I am now pursuing my Nursing degree so that one day I may become a medical missionary. My husband and I just moved to New Mexico to slow down and work hard toward our future. I decided to become a caregiver because my grandfather was diagnosed with Parkinson's and Alzheimer's a few years back but with much help from caregivers he was able to live out his last years in his home with my grandmother at his side. I have worked with geriatric, bariatric, dementia, Alzheimer's, and Parkinson's patients. I have mostly worked in rehab and long term facilities but doing so has taught me many skills. I have learned how to properly care for my residents while showing them kindness, warmth, and friendship. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me. Thank you for your time.
