About Margaret

I like to form a bond w my client, know their history, so I can take care of their individual needs.I took care of my elderly parents for 6 yrs.n my friends elderly mother for 3 yrs.after my parents passed.I decided I enjoyed putting a smile on their faces n I was good @it.My friends mom was in a nursing home n I was horrified @ the way she was taken care of. Her whole body was bloated. We decided to take her home, n she flourished .I gave her proper meals n care, n she was up walking, (w her walker) wanting to go to the mall, n out to dinner again. I know I gave her a better quality of the last yrs of her life.

Hello, Im Christina, I am a great caregiver because I am compassionate and have a very good amount of patience. I understand what most people are going through and have the ability to be very sympathetic towards each individual and their own unique situation. Everyone needs a little assistance every now and then and helping others in something I take pride in. I treat my clients with much respect and make sure they are happy and comfortable. It makes me feel better about myself knowing that I can help make someone's life a little easier and put a smile on their face.

I worked for 1. 5 years in a nursing facility as a certified nursing assistant helping our elderly with all aspects of their activities of daily living. I also worked as a mental health therapy aide at the Buffalo psychiatric center for 10 years and took care of my mom the last year of her life. I am very personable and caring. I treat people the way I would like to be treated. I love the Bills and Sabres and like to do crossword puzzles. One of my biggest assets is my ability to put my self into others shoes.
