About Barbara

My name is Barbara and I am fun, reliable, caring, loving, compassionate, confident, honest, trustworthy, intelligent, optimistic, enthusiastic, loyal, and hard working. I have been a caregiver for 6 years and have experience with Lewy Body Dementia, Alzheimer’s, stroke, brain aneurism, cancer, bi-polar disease, heart problems, COPD, and those recovering from surgery. I am a Certified Medical Assistant and certified in both First-Aid and CPR. I've had a live scan working with the elderly. I own my own vehicle, have auto insurance, and a clean driving record. I love to cook and when I am not working I like to walk, hike, do yoga, and paint. I paint in watercolor, oils, & acrylics and I have been painting since I was very young. I was a white-water rafter and rafted the Colorado River for five summers. It is beautiful, fun, and majestic. I sold real estate in Scottsdale, AZ for 15 years and published a yellow page phone directory for 6 years in Saddleback Valley. I like to try out new recipes in Jamie Oliver's cookbook. I love my work and enjoy the fact that I can turn people's lives around. I am very proud of the fact that I have achieved so much in my life. I love going to school and learning new things.

    I became a caregiver because I am content in knowing that someones needs have been met, and that I had the privilege to assist them. I enjoy being a help to those that may no longer be able to do things on their own or just need a little assistance. I am a very nurturing person, I'm happy when I know others are taken care of. I am proud of finishing my nursing pre-requisite classes, and I am now waiting to get into an R.N. program. I will become an R.N. and continue the healing ministry of Jesus, with great honor and responsibility I will assist in the healing process of those I meet, in mind, body, and soul.
