SOUTH WEYMOUTH, MA…
Compassionate home care for the elderly has been the signature of Celtic Angels, Inc. since Owner Maria Burke founded the company back in 2005. In the 10 years since, the company has broadened its reach, expanding their staff and providing excellent care to their patients on the South and North shore. For those efforts, Burke has been named the recipient of The Smiling Neighbor award given by South Weymouth Dentist Dr. Richard Wolfert, DMD.
“You cannot find a more noble and compassionate vocation than caring for the elderly,” said Dr. Wolfert, AKA “The Toothboss”, whose practice is located at 1121 Main Street. “All it takes is spending just a few minutes with Maria and you realize Celtic Angels is more than a business but her life’s passion. For that, she is very deserving winner of our Smiling Neighbor award.”
Burke drew her inspiration for her business from her grandfather, who worked as an orderly at a hospital in her native Ireland.
Said Burke, “I remember him regularly playing the accordion and singing for the patients and them being mesmerized by his genuine presence. But the one thing that I always think about is how truly happy he was just to see a simple smile cross their faces. I would watch him in awe and think how lucky I was to have such a role model. If every caregiver out there had his mentality or even just half of it, the care in the elder community would improve.”
For being selected as the Smiling Neighbor, Maria had the choice of receiving a $50 gift card to Stockholders or a Sonicare Easy Clean model (Burke chose the toothbrush).
Said Maria, “I’m very grateful to Dr. Wolfert for this recognition. Sharing a smile is a key part of elder care and making patients feel more comfortable and I’m grateful to have a new toothrush to make mine even brighter.
