Title: Program Director
I was born and raised in a small town called Sterling, Illinois. I am a mother of one son and two daughters; as well a proud grandmother of seven grandkids, five boys and two girls. I
have an associate degree in Business Administration.
I moved to Las Vegas in 2001, which I called home for eleven years before a short, two-year stint in my Illinois hometown. I returned to my real home, Las Vegas, in 2014 and at which point I found Nevada Adult Day Healthcare Centers and became part of their adult day care staff.
I have been in the healthcare industry since I was 21 years old. I developed a passion for people with severe developmental disabilities. I truly enjoy helping others and giving back to the community as an adult day care staff member. I also provide respite services for people with developmental disabilities and the elderly. I believe that my purpose in life is to help others!
Started working for NADHC on October 20, 2014.
I love the clients. I enjoy seeing their successes, from participating in an activity they have never done before, to doing something independently like holding their own utensil. I absolutely LOVE being able to help others and can do so as an adult day care staff member here.
It allows families the reassurance of having their loved ones somewhere safe. They’re provided with daily stimulation, activities and can build friendships here.
I have learned there are a lot of places within the community that serve seniors and the disabled population, however, I have never found a place where the owners take so much pride in the quality of services being provided, their adult day care staff and the establishments that the clients come to daily.
We’re grateful for Maria’s contribution to the creative and fun environment created at each of our senior care centers. Both seniors and disabled adults can benefit from the physical and mental activities we facilitate every day. Want to learn more about our dementia day care facilities?
