About Dorothy

I am great caregiver because I provided compassionate and competent to care for all of my clients. My entire professional career has been spent in the healthcare industry serving as a central supply tech, tech in the psychiatric unit for 13 years at University of Chicago Hospital and personal care attendant in Louisiana. I am personally and professionally fulfilled serving as a caregiver. It is so rewarding to know that I have helped so many people in need. I am most proud of my long term care and support to my client who was a quadriplegic. Prior to his death, I learned so many valuable lessons and enhanced my skills and expertise in the caregiving field.
