Shirley McElroy-Weber, Business Development Manager, Home Health Resources

From 1985-2005, Shirley enjoyed much success owning and operating a large Private Duty Home Care Agency in Houston, Texas. Since that time, Shirley has consulted with others in non-medical home care industry providing tolls for growth and success. She is now the Business Development Manager for Home Health Resources, a full service Home Care agency in Houston.

She is a native Houstonian and received her BBA/Finance from the University of Houston. Much her career was spent in accounting and finance. She managed accounting departments and implemented a technologically advanced cash management system for a hospital company with locations across the country.

Her passion, however, is people. She recognized that about the only real assets of a Home Care company are the people. Shirley established a remarkable roster of 300+ Home Health Aides and CNA's by focusing on the recruitment of the absolute best caregivers. Being constantly challenged by retention issues, she established awards programs, an employee newsletter, educational meetings and opportunities for all field staff. She feels that caregivers should always be treated with the honor and respect they so greatly deserve.
