Meet Margaret

I have always gravitated toward talking with & caring for older people, partly because they have had a lot of life experience. At U. Mass Amherst and a university in France in the late 1970's, I volunteered as a weekly visitor to elderly women and corresponded with them for several years after college. These women were dear to me, and me to them.
Since then, I have visited and cared for several elders in my own family. Now that I have a good amount of free time, I would love to visit elderly women or couples again.

I have always gravitated toward talking with & caring for older people, partly because they have had a lot of life experience. At U. Mass Amherst and a university in France in the late 1970's, I volunteered as a weekly visitor to elderly women and corresponded with them for several years after college. These women were dear to me, and me to them.
Since then, I have visited and cared for several elders in my own family. Now that I have a good amount of free time, I would love to visit elderly women or couples again.
In addition to volunteering for my church, I have 3 part-time businesses:
*Private Driver for 2 high school students (Monday-Friday 7-8 a.m. , 3-3:30 p.m. )
*English teacher for 2 Chinese doctors & for a French woman seeking US employment. (Total of 4 hours/wk)
*Pet Care professional, along with my delightful 16-year-old daughter.
My daughter could accompany me on visits if appropriate, since she is very nice to elders & they always love her!

Other Qualifications, Certifications and Credentials
My own mother is 90, and I know how important it is to spend time with and assist elders. I am aware of various issues that many elderly people encounter (for instance, with their children living far away), and I hope to be a "neighborly friend".
