Maisa Duerr, C.N.A.
On-call Caregiver for Bucks, Montgomery and Philadelphia Counties
Maisa began her career with Home Helpers in 2014. She became interested in healthcare while working in a banking institution. She pursued and received a degree in healthcare administration from The University of Phoenix in 2014. To gain additional experience and start her career in healthcare, Maisa decided to begin by getting more education and training. She enrolled in the 4-week Certified Nursing Assistant (C.N.A.) program at the American Red Cross. After graduating and passing the state exam, she began with two part-time jobs: one in a skilled nursing facility and the other with Home Helpers. According to Maisa, “I quickly found that working in the nursing facility really didn’t give me the personal satisfaction that I was looking for in a job, but it did provide some valuable hands-on care experience that I could use in the future. Home Helpers provided me the opportunity to work individually with people, so I could build relationships with them, and their families.” Maisa decided to accept more hours with Home Helpers, and in 2016, management recognized the value of her approach to caregiving, and promoted her to the full-time position of On-call Caregiver. Maisa resides in the Rhawnhurst section of Philadelphia.
