About Maria

Since I was little I enjoyed the company of elderly, I like talking and learning from them. I am a single mother of three wonderful girls. We moved to San Antonio 11 years ago and started working at Emeritus assisted living . I work at Sisters Care at Incarnate Word. I really enjoy helping others. I want to teach my girls we are all going to get old and need help. Seniors need help and attention, they deserve respect and compassion. I understand it is very hard to loose their independence and even sometimes their dignity when they are not able to do things by themselves. I give the best service and attention because I think everybody deserves it.

To give and share with clients, one must be compassionate and patient and have an understanding that those needing care would like for the caregiver to understand their needs. There happens to be an advantage to being a caregiver that can put themselves in the shoes and situation of those with the need. My joy is realized when the needs are filled and the cared for people are grateful and thankful. I want to give the care and experience the joy often. I have experienced this joy with my parents as I cared for them. Currently I am a part-time caregiver for various clients providing them all the assistance they may need.
