Caregiver of the Month
Karen George, LPN
Karen George, LPN
Karen George, LPN is Nurse Care’s Caregiver of the Month for February 2015. Recently, I had the chance to get coffee with Karen and learn more about why she became a LPN. As Karen was doing mission work overseas, she was asked to work in a hospital and received on-the-job training. Once returning to the US, Karen decided she loved taking care of others so much that she wanted to pursue her degree in Practical Nursing. Since working with Karen, she has made every effort to staff what I ask of her. Karen has been a very reliable employee that I do not hesitate to call on. She is very versatile and willing to apply herself in a variety of settings. Karen is a great communicator and gets back to me right away. Karen recently stayed behind to clean a client’s house after the client and their parent needed to go to the emergency room. Karen could tell the parent was stressed and needed some house cleaning help. This is a great example of Karen’s character. I appreciate Karen and believe she is a great member of our Nurse Care team.

Tim is empathetic, friendly and has an unparalleled work ethic. We are honored to have him as a member of the Nurse Care family.
At Nurse Care of North Carolina, we believe it is important to recognize our caregivers for their compassion, dedication and diligence. This month, we are shining the spotlight on Tikumusu Agborbesong!
Tikumusu, known affectionately as “Tiku” by friends and family, has been a CNA with Nurse Care since February of 2015. Prior to joining our team, Tiku attended
The University of Yaonde II in his native country of Cameroon. After earning a degree in English Private Law, Tiku’s varied skill set subsequently led to a career as a journalist and dual-business owner. He immigrated to the United States in 2012.
Of his work ethic, client Peter Tillers describes Tiku as a “remarkable caregiver.” He continues: “[Tiku] is meticulous. He takes great care to understand — and anticipate — the needs and preferences of the people in his care. He is also a man of many talents…In sum, he is outstanding.”
We could not be happier to have Tiku at Nurse Care of North Carolina. With his wealth of knowledge, professionalism and creativity, Tiku is a tremendous asset to our team!
At Nurse Care of North Carolina, we believe it is important to recognize our caregivers for their compassion, dedication and diligence. This month, we are shining the spotlight on Penny Clark!
Originally hailing from Dover, Delaware, Penny has been providing personal care services since 2009 and joined Nurse Care in October 2014. Penny has dedicated herself to helping others — the tragic loss family member inspired her to obtain her CNA and focus time on providing a support system for those in need. She is particularly excited about working with seniors and feels compelled to “give back the love and respect they have given to others.” Time and time again, Penny has consistently taken the initiative to treat her client as family and be proactive with care needs.
In her spare time, Penny is an avid Duke Blue Devils fan. She is also eager to further her education in healthcare. Her qualities are a great example of what Nurse Care seeks from its caregivers and we are excited to have her as a member of our team for years to come!
At Nurse Care of North Carolina, we believe it is important to recognize our caregivers for their remarkable compassion, dedication and diligence towards the respected individuals for whom they provide care. This month, our thanks goes to Janelle Chambliss!

She graduated from Elizabeth City State University with a bachelor’s degree in Biology and is pursuing an associate’s degree in Nursing at Durham Tech starting in August.

Nurse Care is grateful that Casey Curry decided during his final year of college at Appalachian State University to change fields. Realizing that working with computers would not bring the satisfaction he required, Casey enrolled in a CNA program and started in a new direction. That decision led Casey to Nurse Care of North Carolina in February of 2015 when he became a live-in caregiver. Casey quickly became the primary caregiverfor his client and he enjoys providing the one-on-one, personalized attention that is possible in home care. Dr. H., one of Casey’s clients, describes him as ‘a wonderful guy and a great nurse assistant who will do anything for you.’
Casey’s future plans include nursing school and eventually becoming a Nurse Practitioner. For now his down time is spent following Mountaineer football and preparing to buy his first home in Clayton, where he will be closer to work, friends and educational opportunities.
Within the foundation of all successful organizations there can be found several qualities that ensure, if not guarantee, its longevity; Dependability, a willingness to adapt, unquestioned dedication, and compassion. Each of these qualities, along with many others, have been used to describe our September Caregiver of the Month. Pamela
Moore was born in the Bronx, New York. Her career in the healthcare began 22 years ago. Her passion for helping those in need began following an automobile accident that paralyzed her brother. Pamela used her family’s lack of knowledge of healthcare policy and procedures, as motivation to pursue her calling as a provider of quality care for all of those in need.
Pamela Moore is a mother of five and grandmother to four grandchildren, who she proudly admits to spending the majority of her free time and money with. Her mini-chihuahua ‘Rocky’ is another of Pamela’s joys. When Pamela, is not providing excellent care to Nurse Care clients, she can often be found reading books by James Patterson or watching two of her favorite sports teams, the Dallas Cowboys and the New York Mets. If she could pass along only one gem to the world she would advise everyone to: “Be respectful of other people and their time, and be mindful of your elders.”
The Nurse Care family is only as great as each of its members and Pamela Moore is a true testament to greatness of Nurse Care and our dedication to the service of the community. This recognition may only shine the spotlight on her deeds for the moment, but her constant commitment to the service of others allows her to shine at all times.
It is no surprise that Alyce Capasso has been chosen caregiver of the month. Her light has really shone bright since becoming part of the Nurse Care Family. Alyce has a sweet caring spirit that resonates with her clients as well as others. She has proven to be a Super Star Caregiver and is dependable. Not only is she dependable but she makes every effort to help out whenever needed and on many occasions have gotten us out of a crunch.
Alyce was born in Norfolk, Va and later moved to North Carolina where she spent most of her childhood. Alyce says that she have always known she was a caregiver and peacemaker even as a chi Id. She and her husband Ralph was charged with the awesome task of caring for Alyce’s mom for the last four years of her life. She took pride in caring for her mom and the entire experience of visiting hospitals, doctor offices and nursing homes gave her a brand new lease on life. Alyce is inspired by all people who live honest lives and do their best to help others as she is a true testament to this as well. Alyce worked with Square D Company for ten years and volunteered with Paralyzed Veterans of America for seven years. The Square D Company awarded Community Service Awards and the overall Alliance Awards each year. Alyce won one of the ten Awards offered. She is now the proud recipient of a beautiful “People Who Made a Difference” Award.

It is rare to know your calling as a child, but Suzanne Martinez was one of the lucky ones. From a young age, Suzanne knew that not only did she want to help people but that she had a special passion for the elderly. In the small, close-knit community of Mebane, NC, Suzanne loved assisting the elders in her church, whether that was helping to carry items or being a listening ear. It was due to that caring nature that her grandfather affectionately named her “Little Nurse.”
After her early years in a small town, Suzanne moved to Raleigh, NC. She spent a few years working in the theater where she was quickly promoted to an assistant manager. Soon, the long hours and nights away from her family began to make her reconsider getting back to her passion for being the “Little Nurse.” Suzanne decided to go back to school to pursue her true love of working with geriatrics and became a Certified Nursing Assistant. Suzanne has now been a CNA for 6 years and knows that she has truly found where she will continue until she retires.
Suzanne and her husband reside in Mebane, NC with their 4 boys ranging in ages from 5-17 years old. They love playing games, putt-putt, or just hanging around the house watching television. Suzanne says, every day is a blessing to wake up, spend time with her family and do what she loves.
Cassey Bailey has been a valuable member of the Nurse Care team since November 2011. She makes it clear that her goal is to always go above and beyond expectations, and that is very much her reputation here at Nurse Care.
It was at the tender age of 15 that Cassey earned her first certification in healthcare and became a CNA. Since then, she has gone on to become an LPN and is now set to graduate with her degree in Nursing from NC Central in May 2016. No matter the degree she has held, Cassey has been known for delivering outstanding care.
Cassey first got into home care because of the flexibility it allowed her. With twins at home, balancing work and family was incredibly important to her. Home care gave her flexibility she needed, and satisfied her need for a career with a purpose. She gets to help people in their own homes, and she treasures so many memories made over the years with her clients.
Because of her professionalism, sunny outlook, and always going the extra mile, we are so proud to name Cassey as our March Caregiver of the Month!

Belinda Hooker is Nurse Care’s Caregiver of the Month for May 2016. Originally from the Chapel Hill area, Belinda became a caregiver after graduating high school and has been in the field for over 30 years. Belinda recently was awarded the 2016 SHARP Outstanding Direct Care Worker Longevity Award. She is dedicated to her clients – she has memories of times she had car problems and getting to her clients’ homes by 10 speed bicycle or by walking the length of the Haw River Bridge. During the power outage of Hurricane Fran, Belinda remembers cooking her clients’ meals on the outdoor grill.
Belinda’s relationship with her current client is representative of many she has had over the years. Before Belinda began working with her client, he was reluctant to eat healthy meals and participate in grooming. After Belinda brought her vibrant smile, upbeat personality and remarkable reliability to the scene, the client, who Belinda refers to as ‘her Buddy’ is more engaged and enjoying life.
Belinda comes from a long line of caregivers: her grandmother cared for seniors in their homes and her mother was a nurse. Clearly, the nurturing gene is in her family! We celebrate with Belinda as she sets a wonderful example for the Nurse Care Family.
