Our Story


Though our company has recently bloomed, our roots of experience run quite deep: our care team has more than 40 years of combined skills and practice.

We were founded under the vision and leadership of Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Jela Maretic, a healthcare professional with more than 30 years of experience in clinical areas including:

  • catastrophic care management
  • acute and subacute care
  • private duty care and staffing

With the last decade of her career focusing on homecare, Jela’s experience and knowledge in the field translates into better patient care. Jela recognizes that knowledge is power—and ensures that each team member is properly trained on an annual basis to keep up with the latest in modern day medicine as it pertains to delivering the best homecare.

Additionally, Jela fosters a family-owned and operated culture at Gratitude Homecare. She is committed to creating a beautifully kind environment for her team that leads to better relationship-building, communication, trust, empathy, security and care for patients and their loved ones.
