"I was drawn to the mission of Windward Life Care because of the strong relationships I have had with my grandmothers. My paternal grandmother lived to the age of 98 and was the matriarch of the family. I recall sweet moments with her when she would sit on her rocking chair and tell my brother and me stories of her childhood. I remember her as someone who was loving, brave, and resilient. I am fortunate to still have my maternal grandmother in my life. At age 94, she never leaves the house without her hair done! She has told us many stories of her experiences when the Japanese invaded the Philippines during World War II. My grandmothers have inspired me to tackle challenges head on and remember that no matter how tough life gets, one day you'll be able to look back and be grateful for the hardships that shaped you and made you the person that you are today. Caring for the older generation with compassion and respect is very important to me. I am delighted to be part of a genuine team that offers quality care and service to our aging clients."
