About Margaret

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.

Family employer
I left my hospital unit secretary position when my parent needed around the clock live-in care. I cared for her 4 years, with my duties increasing as she aged. She was able to have home health care. The equipment used was cane, walker, hydraulic lift, wheelchair, shower seat, hand held shower sprayer, commode and stairlift. Prior to her passing she was in hospice. My other family members were my son, recently medically discharged from military, when he improved I cared for my sister's husband when he came home from Rehab after a surgery.

Verdene D.

Hello there!!! My name is Verdene Dismuke and I am the caregiver for YOU!!!! I became a caregiver over 20 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.
