About Monica

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.

$16.00/hour · Santa Fe, NM
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.
