Barbara Schultz has been a business woman for 35 years. She started her career in Sales/Marketing and enjoyed much success working as a Job Recruiter for a Fortune 500 Company. Promoted to manager of a large Baltimore office, her team broke all records and Barbara proved that she had an innate ability to match people with jobs.
Helping folks navigate their career was her true passion.
After many years Barbara turned that passion in a new direction. As she aged and saw her colleagues approach retirement, she realized the importance and need to assist elderly folks stay independent and age with dignity.
Proudly, in 2004 MB Homecare opened. Barbara, a true entrepreneur devised a plan and followed her new passion. She decided against a franchise operation that was popular because she wanted to have the freedom to cater the individual needs of the folks she would serve. Getting old is hard enough, but having to give up independence is something none of us want to think about. Our belief has always been that with a little help from competent professionals, living life as you would like can happen. MB HomeCare has proved it for many years.
Barbara also understands, firsthand how hard that process can be. She has recently had to watch her own mother’s health decline and now depend on our caregivers to assist with mom’s everyday living. Sometimes family is just not enough. Although there are wonderful support systems in place, family cannot possibly be there at all times to meet all of moms needs. She is happy and active.
Barbara’s vision for the future is simple. We look forward to helping folks of age and disabilities look at life with a positive outlook. She believes that life does get harder for us, but with the help of our team of caregivers, it can be done with dignity and grace and hopefully a little humor. It is her promise to you.
It is through Barb’s heart and passion for delivering extraordinary care, she has inspired her caregivers and administrators to go above and beyond. It is personal.
