A caregiver of seven years trained to handle a variety of health and behavioral situations, I am aware of the impulse of families to want to ensure the health and well-being of loved ones. The help may just call for daily living activities with extra touches that make life worthwhile: decent exercise, tasty healthy meals, a clean, pleasant environment, a good listener and conversationalist, and kind, competent care. Some situations, however, require attending to seemingly insignificant, but crucial tasks, such as reminders to drink enough liquids, to move body and limbs periodically to avoid pressure points and muscle atrophy. I believe my care is dispensed with respect, kindness, and purpose, mindful their need for such greater than ever. A general "How are you?" might be followed with a specific "Do you feel dizzy",; and too long a spell on the couch will suggest an exercise or outside to smell the roses. The idea, above all, is to provide for the well-being of body and soul. A wise tip I learned is to give old people something to look forward to, whether a fun treat or an item in their bucket list. It may not always be possible, but sometimes, even just trying helps. My career history is eclectic, but caregiving suits me because I believe I make a difference in the lives of those in my care; more often than not, the tables are turned to make me pay attention. I consider my charges' health and well-being challenges, such as easing a cynic's attitude with kindness or making one's last days a comfort. By researching and learning about their ailments before I take over, I make certain I "do no harm". I have gained hands on and annual online training from Home Health Aide courses and nurse delegated work. An energetic, resourceful worker, I offer empathy, kindness, and a bright outlook. They are what I gave my mom, now lovingly sent off to join dad, with plenty to spare for others.

Wanting a licensed NURSE to have that extra security? Helping others heal us! Life taught me this lesson when I was 16 years old and working as a CNA during high school. Every time that I would help someone improve their situation, I would get this great sense of well-being. The patient becomes the healer and over a decade later with a LPN license and college degrees, it still holds true today. So, why do I choose to be a positive influence and promoter of greater health? It's simple. I have to do it. It is in my blood that pools into my heart and traverses the depths of my soul. I enjoy caring for others as much as I like breathing. Hi, my name is Quiana (Key-anna), and thank you for taking the time to read my profile. Born in Arkansas, I am a high honors nursing graduate, summa cum laude graduate with BS in Biology and Graduate Certificate in Health Sciences, published scientific author in the AJP in lung transplant rejection and recipient of grants from institutions such as NASA, Yale, and NIEHS/NIH. I have authored and published 3 books. My most recent book, Powetry-Reclaim Your Power Thru Poetry, resulted in me being chosen to attend the 2016 inaugural United State of Women Summit hosted by the White House. Personally, I enjoy life and love to be in the company of positive, progressive people. I am very dependable, trustworthy, organized and easy-going. Compassion and empathy are my corner stones. I enjoy helping others reach their fullest potential. Regarding LPN services, I focus on social health nursing-promoting a smoother re-integration into the community. I provide the following services: Individualized nursing care, Respite care, Emotional support, Social events attendance, Doctor visits and interpretation, Travel nursing, and Pre/Post-surgery support with wound care.
