Primary Care Provider 02/2012-11/2012 Bernard Oddo Lived with and worked with a double amputee, whom was very stubborn and self-destroying on more occasions than not. Made his house into a home in which he was calmer, more personal, caring about himself. Taught him self-respect again, and to care how others saw him and more importantly how he saw himself. Made sure he had three square balanced, well nutritional meals and snacks during the day. Almost always homemade.

Verdene D.

$20.00/hour · Silver Spring, MD

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.
