Meet Dorothy

  • Comfortable with pets
  • Has a car

Worked in restaurants last 40 years. Over last few years I have found much joy with children and elderly. I enjoy helping children to learn and laugh. I haven't met a child yet that has not become my friend.As for the elderly, I am very patient and caring. I listen to them and give them as much attention as they need. Currently I work at a convent, Saturday and Sunday only. I work on the hospice floor and the Sisters are always thanking me for being genuine and patient. Also for knowing when they need an extra hug or kiss or to just be there with them. Never been a paid babysitter, but at large functions I am always with the children or assisting those that can't do for themselves.
