Caregiver of the Month
Our caregiver of the month is Maria Amaro. She was one of our very first hires at Assisting Hands in Arlington Heights and we are so lucky to have found her. Maria has experience working in nursing homes locally and in Rhode Island. This is her first experience in home care and she has excelled with the one-on-one attention she can give her clients. Her warm nature and passion for to helping others is unmatched. Maria once told me that she understands that what our clients need really goes well beyond taking care of their physical needs. She truly understands that being a caregiver is all encompassing. You are not only a caregiver, but a friend and a confidant. Maria keeps herself busy with two small children here in Arlington Heights. She is available for evening and weekend shifts.
What do our clients have to say about Maria? Well, a LOT of great praise! Here are some kind words from Maria’s rise and shine client in Palatine:
“Maria’s warm heart and sunny attitude make the honor of Caregiver of the Month well deserved. She does her job, whatever it may be, with a smile and compassion. Maria always offers encouragement with a great dose of humor and a wealth of experience.”
