About Maryjo

I have taken care of all the elderly in my family and some of their friends, I moved from TX to FL and looking to do the same I have been doing for the past 15 years as a paid caregiver. I am very patient with old ladies and know how to take care of their needs. The caregiver job is to make them feel comfortable and sometimes keep them company and depending upon the person have a little fun and have a nice time. I took care of a lady who was in a coma for a year and always talked to her and keep her looking her best. She woke up and told me she knew that somebody was talking to her and telling her stories. Never allowed her to get bed sores or neglected her. I am a professional sanitarian with a M.S and know how important to keep their area clean is. I have travel extensively, I am bilingual English and Spanish and like to read and write also I have a passion for old cultures, history, movies and Precolumbian art.
