Margaret has exceeded all expectations. From the start, Margaret returned emails, and texts promptly. I explained to Margaret that my husband was in rehab and would be home soon, needing round the clock care. When I told Margaret about a meeting to discuss discharge instructions, she volunteered to meet me there so that she could partake in the discussion. Margaret has always showed up on time, or early. I am so thankful for finding her to care for my husband, who has dementia and parkinsons. Rob is not verbal now, and is confined to a bed or his wheelchair. Margaret is caring, compassionate, and patient. She is gentle when washing him or changing his products, yet thorough. Rob is always clean, and Margaret makes sure to use any creams and ointments necessary to keep Rob from getting bed sores. I can't say enough good things about Margaret. She is an absolute God send and I would recommend her with an outstanding glowing report.

My Job Isn't Just A Job My Job Is My Passion.

I've worked with clients of all different personalities. There isn't one client I didn't get along with, my passion of caring for others runs deep. I'll always put my client(s) first their wants, needs & more importantly their happiness. I take my job serious because I have a duty to care for them as my own loved one. The best part about working with different clients is I learn about them in many ways that's beneficial to the relationship we're building together. I love that families feel so comfortable leaving their loves ones in my care without worrying. I've been doing healthcare since 2015 and I've never looked back it's my calling and I wouldn't change my passion for anything else. The best part about bonding with my clients is they see me as someone they can trust and that means everything to me. There's nothing more reassuring than a tight bond between caregiver and client who eventually becomes an extended family member!

Theresa was employed as a home health care provider in my home for two years. She assisted my mother who was in her nineties and diagnosed with Alzheimer's. Her direct services included all personal and hygienic care, meals, laundry, light housekeeping, activities, and companionship. She also provided consultation with both the family and medical personnel. I had the pleasure of spending much time with Theresa. She provided exceptional care for my mother, as well as support for me and my family. She was dependable, responsible, punctual, caring, and calm during a stressful time. She was able to quickly assess the needs of my mother and develop an effective plan of care. She created a comfortable and supportive environment that enabled my mother to remain at home. Her positive attitude, competence, and support in difficult situations fostered a sense of confidence in her ability. I was able to go to work knowing my mom was well cared for. Theresa has become part of our family.
