I have a web site designed in Dreamweaver - my web master is no longer available and I'm looking for someone that can take over and make the new changes, perhaps even design it better.  my web site is  Joy-Full.com    I am the owner of this web site - I would appreciate help with ideas of how to find the support for my web site that I need.

Google is penalizing your site for the following reasons.

Problem #1: Your site is not mobile friendly.  It must be re-built responsively to work well on all devices. 

Mobile-Friendly Test - Google Search Console

Problem #2: Your site is not hosted over a secure server (HTTPS). 

To fix this, you could purchase SSL/TLS certificates from your web host.  Or get free ones from Let's Encrypt, Comodo and others.

Secure your site with HTTPS - Search Console Help

Ideally, whoever rebuilds your site should create a content management system for you to edit and maintain your site online.  WordPress is a popular option for do-it-yourselfers.  Many web hosts provide an easy one-click WP installation from your server's C-Panel.

Sites built in DW aren't really "Dreamweaver Websites", they're just html, css and javascript files. There's nothing stopping any designer from using their tool of choice to continue working with a site that was originally created in DW, as long as their tool of choice can work with raw .html, .css and .javascript files.

I agree with you, concerning HTML, CSS, JS, PHP... however I have a reservation in case the website created with DW is based on templates and/or library elements

Even if the site is solely based on .dwt and .lbi usage, the only thing a new developer working on the site would lose is a little bit of in-program automation that can easily be replaced with much more flexible server side includes.

I'm not a tech person .. my issue is that my web site person that created my site some years ago has skipped out --- not only is she not available - left me with no reference codes or whatever someone else would need to take over the site - all I got from her was that it was created in Dreamweaver.   I set up a temporary account with Adobe in hopes of finding someone who works with Dreamweaver on this forum.  Thanks all suggestions helpful
