Nurturing Holistic Wellness: Meet Vista Wellness Coordinator, Maria Sarabaez

Maria’s professional path was shaped by a rich tapestry of roles and responsibilities. She began her career as part of the care-at-home program at Valley Medical Group, where she served in five different assisted-living communities, providing essential care to residents of all ages. Her experience extended beyond traditional geriatric care, as she also worked with pediatric patients, showcasing her versatility and adaptability in the field of nursing.

Transitioning to a new challenge, Maria spent six years as a correctional nurse at the Morris County Correctional Facility, demonstrating her ability to thrive in dynamic and demanding environments.

At The Vista, Maria found a home where her passion for holistic wellness could truly flourish. Recognizing the multifaceted nature of wellness, Maria actively engages residents in a variety of activities, from joining the walking club to participating in meditation classes. She embodies the spirit of encouragement, empowering residents to explore new experiences and live their best lives. Despite the demanding nature of her work, Maria remains steadfast in her pursuit of higher education as she studies at Passaic County Community College to become a registered nurse.

The abundance of physical resources at The Vista, including a fitness center, a group exercise studio, an indoor pool, a spa, a sauna, and paved walking trails, provide residents with unique opportunities for growth and exploration. Maria has witnessed firsthand the transformative power of these resources, as residents embrace new challenges and embark on journeys of self-discovery.

What Maria finds most fulfilling about her position is the opportunity to form meaningful connections with residents and their families. As a family-oriented individual herself, Maria understands the importance of these relationships and cherishes the trust and camaraderie shared among residents and their loved ones.

Beyond her professional identity, Maria is a vibrant individual with a love for hiking, salsa dancing, and cooking. Originally from western Massachusetts, Maria’s roots run deep, and she finds joy in returning home to her large, close-knit family.

In Maria Sarabaez, The Vista has found not just a nurse, but a compassionate caregiver, dedicated advocate, and beloved member of the community. Her passion for nursing and unwavering commitment to resident well-being are a testament to her character and her enduring impact on those around her.
