About Heidy

I have a Medical background and I love helping people to easy physical or emotional pain. I have worked as a care giver/companion for Comfort keepers(part time) and I love every second of it. Love to work with seniors because I learn so much with/from them, listening to their stories and the history of their families and the towns they are from. It is very gratifying to know I am helping them to feel respected and loved. Some of my clients have become part of my life and family and I am still in contact with them even when they are not under my care anymore. I have learn new skills from my clients such to be grateful for being healthy, caring and patient to others' pain and flaws, I have learned to garden and knit and even to appreciate antiques, classic music and simple things. Seniors are treasures that need love and cares, they are present of how our future would be.

Review requests for goods available from a variety of sources and would solicit quotes after verifying specifications, considering any special terms or conditions. I would locate available market resources, compare quotes, and determine the best course of action to complete receipt and delivery of items requested in a timely manner. I kept electronic records to maintain complete files relating to receipts, shipping, and payments process to facilitate record keeping requirements of our company and the client's. My record keeping system was much appreciated by those clients and the federal government that used the GSA Smart Pay card and valued clear, concise records to facilitate their monthly reconciliation process. Oversaw and ensured compliance with security and proper delivery to secure government client locations. All these were recurring operation I did on a regular basis. Job ended due to company being closed. Left on good terms.

Hello, My name is Margaret. I laugh alot and I take my Clients very seriously. I am one person who love her work. I provide care to my recipients as I would love to be served, uncompromised care. My Clients means alot to me because I understand that I feed my family from what they pay me. Therefore, I sherish them and treat them with due respect. I have a background where I took care of my Grandfather for two good years, when he fell and became hemipledgic. I have loved taking care of Seniors ever since. 1993. In 2004, I did my CNA, and I have worked as a caregiver ever since. I have seen Seniors go through geriatric challenges and I have been a very close person to them, until when they leave this word. I have learnt to love and to provide care and support that they deserve until their last day. I am not bragging, but I have been a good friend to anyone who fell in my hands as a recipient. I have mostly done Private Care and also through Agencies. I enjoy what I do.
