About Maria

I am originally from New York and am of Italian descent. I am married to a retired U. S. Navy man and therefore have some basic knowledge and appreciation of the military. I have been in the healthcare field for the last 21 years and switched over to Home Health in 2005. I really enjoy helping people with their health needs, especially those who cannot do for themselves, such as the disabled or elderly. Most of my patients have been the elderly suffering from dementia or Alzheimers. However, I have also cared for a couple of centenarians who simply needed companionship and occasional errands done for them. I am a very friendly and outgoing person who is also very neat and clean.

I grew up in an extended family in the Philippines where we care for our elders as customary. I am very caring, responsible, hard working, careful & have a happy personality that my clients enjoyed. I used to teach school and good with kids but my passion is really for the elders. It is a very rewarding feeling at the end of the day when I know that I gave my very best to help to my client. I love to cook/prep meal, travel, run errands, and do fun things with my client. I will be a good companion & very dependable around my clients.
