Moises has a passion for bringing quality care services for those who need it and is most proud of the personal connection he maintains with clients, care partners and staff. “We want people to thrive at home and reduce their need for expensive medical services, and that’s why we created Cura for Care.”

Erica

RN, Care Supervisor

Erica has spent her life as a caregiver, first as a mother baby nurse, and second as a full-time mother. Now she's expanding her reach to bring warm assistance to seniors and families. Erica oversees care plans ensuring service excellence to seniors, children and those served by our executive assistants.

She's part of the Moises & Mary team, making home or hospital visits on short notice. A caring professional, May has worked as part of clinical support and as an LPN caregiver with hospitals, insurance companies, residential facilities and as a home care provider.

Cathy

Nurse Assistant, "Chief Motivator"

Cathy is our go-to person when someone is down or refuses to get up and out. She'll start them with a quick trip to the store, then a full shopping trip. Soon enough, she has them excited about a dinner date or show tickets at a local dinner theatre. For seniors struggling with isolation, Cathy's focus on engaging with old friends or making new friends is entertaining and motivating.

She's also a superb cook, involving her clients in organizing shopping trips and making special meals. One day while cleaning, Cathy found $1400 forgotten by a client under his mattress. Because of experiences like this that demonstrate her trustworthy, loving character, deep friendships develop between Cathy and her clients.

Anita

CNA, Pre-Nursing Studies

A true blessing, Anita is the warm, reliable, efficient care partner with a specialty in personal hygiene and bathing. Individuals take an instant liking to her and resistance quickly dissipates as the warm smile, confidence and professionalism provides reassurance that they are in good hands with Anita. Described as a ‘good date’ by thankful clients, she gets the less motivated up and moving. One client in his late 80’s put it simply by saying “I love Anita” he wife quickly chimed it that she felt the same way.

Dee

Child Care and much more

A Nashville native, Dee knows many of our clients' parents, their children, and their clergy. Her caring demeanor and do-what-is-needed attitude make her a favorite with our clients. Dee provides child care during worship services for one of our clients, a local distinguished church, who describes her as a friend to all the children and a trusted assistant to all the parents. Some of the parents remember Dee caring for them during their teen years.

Cheryl

CNA

Cheryl brings professional training and experience in her role helping individuals living with memory loss. She's on staff with the prestigious Abe’s Garden Memory Care Center of Excellence, and she has a knack for motivating individuals to get out of bed and stay active. Daily life becomes an adventure with trips to the store or walks in the neighborhood.
