About Maria

I'm a 23 years old caregiver who became Interested in caregiving after my father had a stroke and wasn't able to help himself my mother and I had to help him do his daily activities and then I had looked online for ways to better take care of him and that's when I came across for vocational classes in home health aid , in those classes I learned how much I enjoy helping and learning about how to help others not just my father . I have had the privilege to be able to take care of 2 residents within the 2 years that I have been doing this job . I am proud to say that with the skills such as learning to bath, transfer ,proper feeding , companionship I learned in my home health aid classes at Mt.Sac I was able to take care of them properly and with care until their passing . I genuinely enjoy my job and knowing that I did my best to take care of those who no longer can take care of themselves , not only as a job but as if they were a family member . I believe what makes me a great caregiver is not the only the skills I have acquired but also the understanding and empathy I have for the elderly and those who have challenges on their day to day lives .
