I have worked in healthcare since 2011. I am mature and work well with clients with behaviors associated with specific diagnosis such as Stroke, brain injuries and other neuro related diagnosis. I have 3 kids over age 13. I am going to school for nursing currently. I have a passion for helping others. I am empathetic, down to other and a humble hard worker. I am dependable, I have reliable transportation, a clean care and am always on time.
I'm very sweet and outgoing I do speak out when I know something is wrong a client. I'm also talkative and like to spend time knowing the client and making them feel comfortable with me. I love being a caregiver it just came naturally when I was a teen taking care of my dad when he was ill. I enjoy making my clients laugh and feeling very good knowing life goes on but if their having a bad day I make sure to put a smile or at least make them laugh before the my shift is over. My most achievement was getting my CNA and able to travel the USA and working in different departments of the healthcare field and working with different patients and their needs.
I became a caregiver to help those in need. Who may be limited, but can still live a life of fulfillment. I enjoy seeing the person's face when they see they did something they didn't think that person could do. It's fun to see their face light up with joy. Becoming more than just a caregiver to a client is very fulfilling to me. I appreciate that they can call me their friend. I'm just a big hearted person that loves to help those in need. I have 4+ years of experience in caregiving, and would love to put my skills to clients use.
Hello there!!! My name is Verdene Dismuke and I am the caregiver for YOU!!!! I became a caregiver over 10 years ago because I have a genuine love and desire to care for those who can't help themselves. While my client base has mostly been comprised of the senior community, I also have cared for infants, children and those with special needs as well. What I enjoy about being a caregiver most are the smiles, hugs, and gently held hands I get from those I care for. Often times I am their primary contact during the day...the only friendly face, smile or conversation they receive. Being able to make that type of impact on someone's day is a powerful testament to human interaction and what a simple act of kindness can mean to someone. There's nothing like being the reason behind someone's joy. My most memorable personal achievement was taking a woman who hadn't been outside in a year outside to feel the sun on her face, the wind on her skin, and watch the season change. What that meant to her and the fact that I helped her accomplish what she thought was an unattainable goal has never been forgotten. I still smile fondly thinking about that first time. I am an honest genuine loving caregiver that offers more than the typical person. I believe in dignity at all times, keeping your loved one clean neat and tidy always, I do hair nails, etc and I am willing to go the extra mile for their comfort. I am friendly and outgoing, prompt, responsible, trustworthy and reliable.
I have a big heart, one that cares deeply for people. All my patients look forward to me coming and feel better when I've been there. I'm thorough & detailed in my work, going above and beyond what's required. When you're passionate about your work, it's not work. I pride myself on being the one who's always requested to come back.

Research and seek other ways of helping others in all areas of support needed in order yo live their lives within their circumstances or situations the best joyous peaceful way.
Started caring for my elderly neighbor while in high school it was then I realized my passion was helping others, my gift from God giving to others. I was eager to begin a career in the field of Care giving health care and with a great desire to continue to grow I enrolled in the CNA Class offered at The Beatitudes Campus of Care in Arizona under the direction of Karen Mitchell RN-BSN I completed my course and received my certification in July of 1994. Today I continue to strive for excellence. My Care Giving/Companion Skills are coupled with 20+ years of experience with the elderly as well as individuals with disabilities. My many years of caring/giving to others has heightened my strengths to aid in the Quality of life, Dignity, Respect and over all well being of each individual client. With my ability to learn quickly and to multitask along with the utmost professionalism, to perform and adapt in all types of environments with the utmost ability and confidence and most importantly compassion and patience. I'm dependable and arrive promptly on my scheduled days. Lastly when you love what you do as I do you are exactly where you are meant to be. God Bless you
I love a home environment and appreciate getting to know one client very well, to provide the best care possible. I've worked in the health field most of my life, and providing care in someone's home is my first choice of any work. I enjoy building a comfortable and reliable routine, this goes a long way in developing peace of mind for the person receiving care and their families. Very important for my own family was that they would be able to remain home for both recovery and end of life care, and that I was able to provide that care.
Growing up, I spent a lot of time with my Grandparents. While helping them with with day to day chores, and activities of living. I also learned a lot from them as well. I enjoyed the quality time we had. Then later on once my Father passed away, I realized my passion, how much I truly enjoy helping others, and meeting the different families that God brings into my path. #Good 2B Home

I'm a passionate patient Caregiver. I love to care respectfully for our Elders and those in need. I enjoy most Caregiving is doing for those whom can't do for themselves. A personal achievement is being in a Christian Ministry for years helping and caring for Elders, Mothers to be and ill individuals in our congregation from the kindness and passion of my heart. I love when I get to cook for my patients, they are always so satisfied. I am attracted to Caregiving after I cared for my Father, I saw the awful treatment he was getting.
