About Dorothea

Hello, I'm a former respiratory therapist looking to help you or your loved one at home. For 10 years I worked in two hospitals helping people with various conditions and disorders. During this time, I also worked in home health taking care of the elderly. I continued working in home health after my hospital closed because I have always felt it was what i was meant to do. Please contact me if you're looking for someone dependable, kind, and compassionate. I do have my background check. Rate of pay per hour negotiable.
