About Laqweta

What make me a great caregiver is that I have empathy and compassion for my patients and their families. I have patience. I'm reliable, trustworthy and very flexible. I love being a : Private CAREGIVER / CNA / HOSPICE CHHA and a RNA (physical therapist assistant) I have 16+ experience. So not only have I done Caregiving and HHA ( Home Health Aid ), I have Hospice care / CNA / Physical and Occupational therapy experience. Which is why I am a Restorative Nurse Assistant as well. Exercise for your love one is so important. Range of motion is a part of our daily living as well. So you know what the saying is " You don't move it you loose it. " I have been truly blessed to take on such a strong rewarding journey. I feel like its my calling. I'm a loving Veteran's wife as well as mother of 1 handsome 19 year old son and 1 beautiful 14 year old daughter. My plans are to return back to school to get my RN in the near future. As for now I feel very blessed to wake up to see each day that wasn't promised to me. My favorite quote is: "Why read a book when you can go to work and hear a new beautiful story from your patient everyday."
