“I became a caregiver because I think it was my calling in life. I've actually done it all my life and didn't know I was doing it.”
Watch this short video as Barbara describes why she enjoys being a caregiver and working at Home Helpers of Bradenton. Barbara was the Home Helpers of Bradenton Exceptional Caregiver last year. Fun fact: Barbara is an ordained minister.
Barbara –Thank you so much for the work you have done and continue to do in our community, both as part of this agency and outside of the agency! I appreciate you and your support of our mission. -Jonathan
WHAT DO YOU LIKE most ABOUT BEING A CAREGIVER?
The nurturing and to see that they get better, as better as they can get from their condition. And some of the wisdom that they tell you, I just take it in my life and add that in my life. So, I've heard a lot of different stories from the elderly people, even when I was much younger and I said, "Oh, that's good. I think I'll use that.”
I became a caregiver because I think it was my calling in life. I've actually done it all my life and didn't know I was doing it. So when I look back, I can see I was doing the same thing as a young person that I'm doing now.
WHAT DO YOU LIKE ABOUT WORKING AT HOME HELPERS OF BRADENTON?
The concern you guys have about the clients and if I have a problem, I can call you and somebody gets back with me really quick. I've had good response like that. I really didn't have to wait, wait and wait. Somebody got right back with me.
Your missions and your vision and your core values to be true. I went over them and read what everything said, I just “yeah, that's them.”
