Maggie’s Bio

After obtaining a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Illinois at Chicago (Social Work) in 2013, I joined the senior care field as a memory care activity director/specialist.

In regards to certifications, I secured the Illinois 40 Hour Domestic Violence Training, which enabled me to work directly with victims of abuse (verbal, physical, emotional, financial), and neglect. In addition, I have completed various Dementia Training Programs that focus on person centered care, dementia related behaviors, communication, and safety.

Over the years, I have worked with well over 50 individuals, each possessing unique personalities, behaviors, and physical/emotional needs. My ultimate goal while engaging with residents is to encourage a feeling of security and empowerment through various activities that are aimed at reducing stress, anxiety, and confusion. I make sure to maintain a safe environment, present a positive demeanor, and treat each individual with dignity and respect.

Prior to gaining official employment in senior care, I assisted an aunt when she was unable to provide care for her mother (diagnosed with dementia) due to time consuming treatment for breast cancer. Tasks at her home included preparing meals, assistance with feeding, medical reminders, self care (bathroom) reminders, light housekeeping, laundry, and running errands/assistance. And of course, activities.
It takes a village! =)

I am currently seeking an opportunity to assist a family in need of additional care for a loved one. Temporary, permanent, or as needed (I am flexible). Please let me know if you would like any further information, or have any questions. I look forward to hearing from you.
Thank you!

Warm regards,

Maggie B.
