My Calling to Care

Growing up under the loving guidance of my grandmother, affectionately known as Mami Clara, shaped the very core of who I am today. Her unwavering faith and boundless love for her family instilled in me a profound reverence for compassion and service. Mami Clara's steadfast support saw me through life's trials, from navigating personal challenges to pursuing my education and career aspirations.

Witnessing her vibrant health and vitality, I marveled at her dedication to remaining active and engaged, sustained by a wonderful network of family love, care, and support.

In later years, the roles reversed, and I had the privilege of reciprocating her love and care by tending to her medical needs and ensuring her happiness and comfort while living on the West coast.

The photograph adorning my office desk, capturing moments shared between Mami Clara, MY grandmother and MY grandchildren – 5 generations, serves as a poignant reminder of the legacy she left behind—a legacy of selfless love and unwavering devotion.

Every encounter with an aging adult resonates deeply with me, as I see in them reflections of Mami Clara's grace and resilience. Their stories, their joys, and their struggles echo her own, reinforcing my commitment to being a beacon of light and support in their lives.

In honoring Mami Clara's memory, I embark on this journey with all my heart and soul, striving to emulate the network we had as a family support to other families with our Care Professionals, and ensuring that every aging adult I encounter feels cherished, valued, and truly seen.
