Our home features a number of private and semi-private bedrooms, fully remodeled with walk-in showers. Life here includes meals together, time with family members, car trips to salons and markets and more.
Lydia was born in Manila in the beautiful islands of the Philippines. She made her way over to the United States in 1993, and became a caregiver 21 years ago in 1996. Her first caregiving job was a real baptism of fire. She started in a very large 300 bed facility in California!
After three years in the large facility, Lydia was looking for something different. She gradually made her way to Arizona in 1999 and has been here ever since. She became certified as a caregiver in Arizona in 2000 and managed five care homes in Scottsdale for 5 years. Managing five homes can be quite a task, but Lydia was up to it. After a while though, she was ready for something different.
In 2005 Lydia saw an opportunity to run the home she is in now and never looked back. She has managed the Paradise for Parents home since 2005 and we love having her. She is the rock that helps hold our care homes together, and she is always ready with a joke and a smile!
Lydia lives with her husband about two blocks from the home she manages. Her husband is also a caregiver in Lydia's home, and he certainly knows who is the boss!
