Colleen has been in the health care field for over a decade. However, her at-home care experience began when, at the age of thirteen, she started caring for her elderly church neighbors as well as her grandmother. This included sleeping at their homes at night, preparing meals and shopping for them. She also had first-hand experience with caring for a loved one when her mother-in-law was diagnosed with dementia. Colleen's area of expertise is working with individuals with dementia and helping both the individual and the family cope, in part by sharing best practices with the families of her clients. Colleen loves working with the seniors in her community. She feels very fortunate to have been very close to her grandparents and aunts & uncles growing up and I believes they were influential in developing her personality and love for helping others.

Barbara brings years of experience in the senior care industry to her position as Care Advisor for Home Care Assistance. She previously worked at A Place for Mom, where she received an in-depth education on all of the options in senior care. It became clear to her early in her career that almost everyone wants to stay independent for as long as possible and that there is a deep desire to remain in one's own home. She also saw this to be true in her own personal experience with her mom and both of her in-laws. While the home care was for her loved ones, she also saw how the experience directly benefited her own life. She believes that having a trusted homecare partner made it possible for her to be a daughter again. Barbara came to Home Care Assistance with a passion for helping others live out their lives with happiness and dignity in the home that holds their memories. She feels she has truly done her job when she can assist families in finding the peace of mind that she was able to have during her time of need.
