Every month, we take some time to highlight one of our amazing employees! This month, our employee highlight is of Megan R., a caregiver based out of our Waite Park/St. Cloud location.
Megan comes from a very large family and loves being busy visiting all of them, from St. Cloud to Brainerd. As a child, she loved playing with her toy stethoscope, needles, and other medical supplies and took that passion with her into adulthood. She graduated from the LPN program at St. Cloud Technical and Community College in 2019.
She loves cooking, fishing, road trips and family.
Megan loves being a caregiver because she gets to see her clients improve over time, makes friends from different generations, and learns cooking and home repair tricks.
Megan shared with us this story:
“When I started, I was assigned a client with a brain injury. I was working 4-5 days a week with her, playing memory games and puzzles, going on walks and taking her to appointments and shopping. She and her family treated me as their own.
A year later, she had improved so much! Her memory was better, her walking/gait and attentiveness and strength were all up. I will never forget all of the laughs and baking days we had.”
