Meet Maria

I'm a writer by trade who became a full-time caregiver to parents with Alzheimer's and dementia, and am publishing a book to help others deal with the spiritual side of the experience. For my parents, I did everything from medication management to bathing/diaper changes, nutritious meal prep, hospice care to home preparation and more. I understand how difficult this process is, and the experience left me with great compassion for the elderly. Since my parents passed, I worked as a caregiver to a cancer patient who is currently in remission. I'm also a certified yoga instructor who teaches a gentle, heart-centered practice focused on breath work. CPR trained. Practical, focused and calm, I bring peace to your loved one's life. Am also available for respite care.
