About Maria

I became a great caregiver when I cared for my mom for 8yrs. I learned a great deal about personal care, and the doctors and nurses were so amazed at the care I had given her I was motivated to care for other in need. What attracted me to become a caregiver was after caring for my mom, I felt it was a calling. A personal achievement of my mine was caring for my mom and still today the care I give to others.
