About Maria

I am a very loving, compassionate,joyful and patient caregiver. I am very detail oriented and a do my work with a spirit of excellence! I am very dependable and knowledgeable as I have been a caregiver for 20 yrs. My first job as a caregiver was in 1996. While I was donig Missionary work in Victoria, Tx., a 23 yr. old homeless man came to us for help. He had many health issues and after taking him to the Dr. in San Antonio, they found out that he had Cancerous tumor in his Brain. He was given 6 months to live and I brought him to San Antonio, Tx. and became his caregiver in our home. He lived 3 yrs. and I had the priviledge of learning how to be a Hospice Caregiver without the pay from man...but God rewarded me with the awesome experience and prepared me for a new career in Caregiving!
