Ruthie Barkus, the owner of CarePatrol Chicagoland South, joined the SNF Spotlight Series. Before CarePatrol, Ruthie began her career in healthcare as a nurse. Her passion for nursing is derived from a heart condition diagnosis as a teen, where she found that only the nurses in the room had her best interest. As an adult, Ruthie became the caregiver for her mother, who had dementia, which introduced her to the complex world of senior care. That experience led her to CarePatrol, where she now educates and advocates for families in the search of quality care for their loved ones.
