About Maria

I became a Caregiver, because I didn't realize I was already one while I was taking care of some family member: my Daughter, Husband and Mom. And I enjoy it very much, I can be that person eyes (when they are blind), ears (when they are deaf), and hands and feet (when they don't have the strength or cant walk due to any condition or are bed bound that can't do much due to accident); it just anybody feel good, we accomplished for others what others can't do for themselves because they have limitations. I remember helping a legally blind person, paint ( yes you are reading correctly) I used to describe things for him in such a detailed that he was putting it in his drawings and paintings. I believe to have the 3 most important things to become a caregiver Patience, Love and Care.
