AVAILABLE WEEKENDS PT: FRI/SAT EVENING/OVERNIGHT OR SUN EVENING.
Hello! My name is Margaret. I have extensive experience working with seniors who need everyday types of help and companionship. I specialize in helping seniors with Alzheimer's. I assist with all tasks: bathing and dressing, medication, walks and outside activities, light housekeeping, laundry, doctor appointments, socialization and companionship, and more. I have worked as a mental health counselor, assisting special needs seniors, and other adults. I am skilled at helping people experiencing impaired memory and cognitive decline. ENGAGEMENT: I try to bring more meaning, value, and enjoyment into someone's life after a diagnosis is given. I encourage friendships with others, take the care receiver to events, promote their ongoing social engagements with family and others. I look to see what activities, hobbies, and interests there are that have thus far made their life fun, and I participate with them.
