About Maricel

I am a compassionate person. I believe that everyone should be treated with dignity and respect especially older people. I come from the Philippines and in our culture seniors are the most respected members of our society. I enjoy helping people and believe that companionship is an important aspect of care. I strive to help all those I interact with enjoy life. I have experience working with elderly individuals and those with cancer. I have a helpful and cheerful personality and people say I'm funny sometimes. I am experienced in providing basic needs such as food prep, personal grooming and basic household chores (you should see the way I fold clothes!). I am organized and can provide reminders for medication on a schedule and will encourage exercise if possible. I am also a trained manicurist. It would be an honor to provide care for you or your loved one.

    I used to be a nurse. Practiced my profession in Denmark. I worked in Amager Hospital in Apoplexy Department (for stroke patients) and Home for the elderly for 4 years. Most of our patients were suffering from Dementia/Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, Cancer etc. With my nursing background, experience, patience and compassion, I can say that I'm much better qualified and a reliable caregiver. I always treat my patients just like my family...with love and understanding and of course their safety is always my priority.
