About Monica

My name is Monica Parra. Ever since sophomore year in high school ( by the way this was a very long time ago!) I have been involved as well interested in the healthcare industry. I have invested more than 10 years into home health care. When I say +10 years, I am expressing the time I began to take college courses and graduating programs to do that which brings me joy and pure fulfillment in life. I love helping people and I love challenge. It's an instinctive tendency of mine to provide the best care for people. I am well-versed with many illnesses esp. those common within elderly populations. I provide service for outpatient recovering from injuries or post-surgeries. My educational transcripts and professional experience strengthen the framework of my career, but what makes me an exceptional caregiver is the only thing that I believe matters most- my ability to empathize with the complex process of healing from traumatic events, terminal illness, ailments related with aging. I personally have experienced the (5) grieving stages firsthand with my own family and I treat every family with the care I would want for my family because I truly understand what you're all going through. I am convinced that is what makes life worth living: being more about giving to others, being self-less, and remaining grateful.
