About Lakyva

I am a compassionate and kind person that enjoys caring for our mature seniors. I have a special place in my heart for those who cannot care for themselves. I have always been a giving person and I love to help those in need. I genuinely enjoy spending time and hearing stories from those that have lived and experiences life before I was born. My dream has always been to become a nurse and care for those in need. As a caregiver, I am able to protect seniors from harm and abuse, which brings me great joy. On my unique journey to gain headway on becoming a nurse. I have been able to obtain my phlebotomy license, which has placed me one step close to obtaining my goal. Until my dream comes to pass I will continue to take pride in care for those that cannot care for themselves.

I am a compassionate person who enjoy helping others. I'm a registered CNA with CPR/BLS and EKG training, in Texas. I have over 20 years of experience with the elderly and disabled. After many years of working in a Hospital Business Office by day and caring for a family member at night, I decided to become a Caregiver to others. I know first hand what it is like to need assistance with the care of a loved one and realizing that you can't be there 24 hrs a day. The uncertainty of trusting someone else to do it for you can cause anxiety. I promise you that I will treat your loved one with kindness, dignity and respect, the same way I would like my loved ones to be treated. This isn't just a job for me, it is a ministry and a passion.
