About Barbara

I am a retired rn and I worked in the hospital setting for 30 years.I enjoy caring for people and I am especially interested in taking care of the elderly and keeping them in their beloved homes as I feel this prolongs life and keeps them happy.For the past year and a half I have been doing just that. I have been assisting senior citizens in their activities of daily living like driving them to appointments, organizing their medications , helping prepare meals,grocery shopping with them or for them helping with housework and personal hygiene and any other tasks they need to be done.
