My name is Maryanna and I have been taking care of seniors now for over 15 years. I am looking to change back into private care. I live here in Tacoma in the North End. Its just me and my husband now as both of our parents have passed. I am a very passionate and caring person and relate very well with the elderly. I love to talk about all types of subjects and life itself. Also I am a clean freak :) with keeping things in order and clean and tidy. My references are not posted but I can get them upon request. I am drug free and have all the papers and documents as a caregiver. I would like to meet with you and your loved one and have a one on one conversation. After resigning from my job of 10 years to take care of my own elderly parents, I found it to be a new career choice. After caring for my parents in my home for 5 years. I went into the assisted living field of caregiving. I have found that my passion is to be able to work with the elderly so they can stay in their own home. This is what I did for my parents and with the cost of being in a private assisted living is so expensive, it puts so much more stress on the loved one's family. I have a passion for animals, cooking, gardening and would love to be able to help the elderly continue their passion as well.
