About Betty

I cared for my Mother in my home until she passed, and cared for my husband (bone cancer) until he passed. I have a strong desire to help others when they are ill. I try to make each day a little better for them. I love to see them laugh and enjoy preparing their favorite foods, having conversations and listening to them. I am very active with my family, we ride roller coasters, go on cruises and we have dinner a least once a week. I am blessed to have a large loving family. I have outstanding references available upon request.

I truely think that being a caregiver just came naturally to me. Growing up my great grandmother lived with us and I was taught at a young age how to care for an elderly person. It is a passion in life to make a difference in someone else's life in a positive way. I believe I have done this many times working for individuals and I have enjoyed every minute of it. I love to nurture and care for others, as a mom it just come naturally. :)

i have basically been taking care of people since i was a teen. my dad got sick when i was in high school and i took care of him, worked full time as well as went to school and looked after my younger sibling. as our mother past away when we where younger. i learned a lot about time management with having to do that as well as compassion,because even tho he was my dad he was still a patient. after he passed away i was able to use what i learned to get in home sitter jobs for elderly adults at night and that led to working with mentally challenged adults in a group home like setting. from there i went to the hospital setting and learned the medical side of things a lot better. i did that so i could help my husband to take care of his parents who passed away last year. i just feel like the lord has given me a caregiver/servant heart and i want to use what he has given me to help as many as i can.
