Maria Riformo moved to America in 1985 from the Philippines in hopes of pursuing the American dream. At the time, she didn’t know exactly what this meant, or if it was an unattainable dream that she was chasing. She was a nurse in her home country, and she strived to continue working in the medical field to assist those in need here in the United States. As she met her husband Hailey, they started a family and had their four children. As Maria balanced her everyday life, working as a nurse in the day and caring for her children at night; she also had an added responsibility of taking care of her elderly father.
One day she realized that the best care she could give her children and her father was to stay at home with them. As days went by, she understood that caring for the elderly was a common problem in America. Unlike in the Philippines where the children would take on all responsibilities of taking care of their parents, the United States was different. People needed to work. Just like how Maria and Hailey needed to work to provide for their family. But what does one do when you are faced with the difficult decision of leaving your job or attending to a loved one? Maria decided that it was time for her to pursue her dream of caring for others and opened Divine’s Care Home.
Her husband Hailey renovated a simple home into a 6-bed care home for the elderly and that’s where it all started. From there, they have established two others (Hailey’s Care home and HM Love and Care Home). Maria and her family have successfully provided a safe environment for the elderly community for over 25 years. In this present time, her eldest son Matthew is now the administrator of HM Love and Care Home and hopes to continue his mother’s dream. It is truly remarkable how one woman’s heart, has changed the lives for many others at their time of need.

Licensee / Administrator
My background is in Nursing and I've been working in the RCFE industry for 24 years. As an entrepreneur my goal is to continue providing the elderly community with our facilities services. Our staff is committed to maintain a safe environment for our residents and dedicate their hard work to deliver the highest quality of care that they can offer. Protecting them from harm and danger, while assisting them on a non-discriminatory basis with equal treatment to all residents without any regards to sex, race, color, religion, national origin or ancestry, are the core elements that structure our foundation. I extend our services to all who are in need of our care.
As Care Administrator, my priorities are to preserve and continue the exceptional care services that our facilities provide. Over the years the residents have become family to us, and like in the Philippine culture, it's in our nature to provide them the best life that they can live. When working with potential residents we address their level of care and structure a long term goal that is suitable for them. Nevertheless, if we're unable to provide a space for your loved one, our administrators will be more than willing to forward you to a reliable referral agency who can provide the right resources.
