About Dione

I believe I am a great caregiver and I stand out from the rest due to having cared for my ill father for the past 16 years. I have experience working with dementia, alzheimers, bipolar, schizophrenic, para/quadriplegic, strokes/TIA, CHF, blind, deaf, COPD, along with a number of other conditions that individuals suffer from. This is where I gained the passion for caring for disabled & geriatric patients. My main goal is keeping my clients smiling and the most comfortable as possible. I enjoy caregiving for the simple fact of caring for others; I have a huge heart as well as the compassion and patience to go along with it. I enjoy the companionship, wisdom and conversations with each and everyone of my clients.I love being a caregiver!
