About Barbara

When my mom had cancer, I sold my home and moved in with her to take care of her. Being a caregiver can be a very challenging and draining responsibility, however; being able to walk side-by-side with mom on her journey was the greatest blessing I could ever receive in this life. From that point on I finally realized God's gift to me was to serve others and so I pursued it. Now I am the happiest I have ever been in my life! I love to laugh, I am patient, compassionate and a good listener. I absolutely enjoy listening to the history of senior's lives. There is so much to learn from them. My happiest and most fulfilling walk in life is being a Caregiver. I Love What I Do!!

Being a caregiver for the past forty years has given me countless opportunities to help a variety of people. I have dealt with many different situations and illnesses in all age groups. I am a compassionate and patient individual. Nursing is my career. I started in 1978 as a certified nursing assistant and went on to graduate in 1995 as an LPN. My specialty is geriatrics mostly in skilled nursing facilities. Presently I work private care only. I much rather prefer to focus on individual care now. Having taken care of both of my parents at home and having years of nursing background, I am more than qualified to take care of your loved one. I will provide a relaxing, stimulating environment where they will feel safe. All the while making sure their daily needs are met. Providing nutrious meals and snacks is also important. I have specialized knowledge of Altzeimers and dementia. I have no problem giving insulin shots or morphine as I worked in hospice care. I am single with my son grown up. I have a very flexible schedule yet do make time for myself. I keep Sundays free for church and family. I prefer to work day hours, but will work some evenings if needed. I can only help your loved one if they are able to be mobile as I have a lifting restriction. I can assist someone in and out and up and down, but not if I have to lift. I also help with errands, light housekeeping, medication reminders, and will offer any helpful info if needed for your loved ones care. Thank you for taking the time to read about me.
