About Talem Home Care & Placement Services

Madessen Berger

Care Coordinator

Madessen grew up in a small town in the middle of the Minnesota plains, and her first job was a nursing home in that same small town. She remembers vividly sitting in the back seat of the family car, waiting to pick up her mom from her job as a CNA, knowing she would want to be just like that when she was all grown up. Providing care was something that Madessen always went back to, no matter where she moved or what she did. So when she moved to Denver, becoming a caregiver with Talem was the easiest decision to make. Now, with 7 years of experience providing care both in facilities and in the home, Madessen is happy to serve Talem in Denver as a member of the office team.

During her free time, Madessen loves to pamper her dog and is actively involved in her church. Living so far away from the rest of her family means a lot of phone calls and messages so she knows what’s going on with her parents, three siblings, and her large extended family.
