About Barbara

Being a caregiver is second nature for me. I became a caregiver because I love people and enjoy being helpful. I am very capable of child care and elderly care. I like giving to someone in need while making their life as comfortable as possible, maintaining their dignity, and assisting in maintaining their independance when possible.. I owned, operated and directed 2 day care centers in the early 80s. I have assisted in the care of the elderly for 5 plus years, including a lady for 5 years until her death. I loved being there for her and her family. My family became her family. With the family's permission, I would take her out to lunch or dinner, grocery shopping, Astros games, church, various functions, including, but not limited to my family holiday gatherings. I believe that all people deserve the best of care. I am loving compassionate and responsible.

      I am a very patient, compassionate, attentive, dependable and trustworthy person. It is my passion to help others while assisting in there daily care. I love to get to know each of my clients and have open and effective communication. One of the many things I love about being a caregiver/cna is, knowing I have positively impacted and helped improve someone else's life. I choose to be a caregiver because I would like to have the same options in the future to have my independence, but still have the help I need. My greatest and biggest accomplishment I would have to say is starting and owning my own business named Dotties Personal Care. *Certified since 2013.
