At Seniors Helping Seniors® Treasure Coast, we have a passion for meeting the needs of seniors in a way that provides both dignity and a sense of camaraderie. Our owner Christina Viamontes firmly believe we can do that through serving seniors in our community, which includes: Vero Beach, Fort Pierce and Port St. Lucie and Sebastian.
As a nurse of 20 years, Christina earned her Associates of Science Degree from the University of North Florida, her Bachelors of Science in Nursing Degree from the University of Central Florida, and a Master of Science in Nursing Leadership and Management also from the University of Central Florida.
Of her 20 years in nursing, she has spent the last 16 years in home health. She began her home health career as a field nurse for a large local home health agency and eventually worked her way up to Director of Nursing while gaining experience in home health, hospice, and private duty care. Since leaving that position, she has spent the last several years as Director of Nursing, charged with launching and growing the Medicare line of business for a local agency that primarily specialized in medically fragile pediatric Medicaid patients. She is a servant leader whose core values are compassion, kindness, gratitude, and respect for clients, families, and caregivers.
Christina grew up in Sebastian (go Sharks!) and is married to Michael, a Vero Beach native (go Indians!). They are thrilled to be raising their four children in their beautiful hometown. With close ties to the community, you will often find them busy coaching Little League and flag football and cheering on their daughter's competitive volleyball team. Christina is grateful for the opportunity to be of service to seniors on the Treasure Coast through her leadership of Seniors Helping Seniors® in-home services.
