Meet Margaret

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.

Margaret was very warm and caring to our mom. Our mom had severe dementia. She was very patient with her and she was also very engaged. She continuously kept the conversation going even if it was the same again and again. She gave us great comfort and peace when we were out of town knowing that she was cared by Margaret.
