About Barbara

I am kind,patient,understanding,a good listener. I have been a Home Health Aide before, a nurses aide before, a private aide before for overnight care. I have cared for my grandmother from 1997 to 1998. I have been a caregiver to my husband for 10 years from 2010 to 2019, for which I am recently widowed as of June 21 2019. He had a chronic back pain with arthritis, MCAD, High Blood Presser, stomach issues, hiatle hernia, acid reflux, glacoma, hearing issues, bowel issues, and mild forgetfullness. At this present time I have no income and so need to find work. I have in the past been a caregiver to other people before marrying in 1996 and cared for my husband for a few years. I enjoy being around elderly and helping them, talking with them and hearing their stories. My personal achievement is raising my family, 4 adult children ages 18,19,25,and 30, homeschooling, being a very good wife to my husband and being a homemaker for many years. I do have a clean background record, I can not afford to pay for a back ground as money is tight at this current time. Feel free to research my background on line.
