KS Adult Care Home Operator, Certified Dementia Practitioner
Neil Barnett grew up in Wichita, Kansas. He has called Kansas City home since 1983, when he moved to the metro after graduating with a degree in finance and accounting from the University of Kansas.
For 21 years, Neil worked in the local offices of Wells Fargo, KPMG Peat Marwick and, finally, at Sprint Corporation, building a successful career in finance and international business development. He also found time to earn his MBA from Rockhurst University along the way.
In 2004, Neil ran across an opportunity to apply his expertise to significant and fulfilling work. On August 1 of the following year, he opened one of the first Alzheimer’s care homes in the Kansas City metro, not far from his Prairie Village residence.
Today, Care Haven Homes operates six houses in Johnson County. Neil, his wife Lisa and father-in-law Howard Mick remain deeply committed owners of this family enterprise.
Neil is a member of Downtown Kansas City Rotary Club 13. He also is a mentee alum of the Helzberg Entrepreneurial Mentoring Program.
