Most Recent Review
Maria has worked since August or September of 2013. Maria is hardworking and pays close attention to details. She displays great work ethics and integrity. She's always arrived early and ready to start her shift. She is kind, gentle and caring. Maria has been a valuable asset and has brought many positive skills and suggestions to our care team. Maria was often asked to training our new employees since her attention to details was of high importance for this task. I would highly recommend Maria for any caregiver position, knowing that she would give her best efforts to whomever she would be caring for, I can't express enough positive in put about Maria and her quality of work.
