About Kalena

My name is Kalena and I am an private duty caregiver with my certifications. I am able to work with patients of all health care and statuses from dementia, Alzheimer's various health conditions to wheelchair bond patients. I have been in the healthcare field for years. Being that I am certified, I have the ability to help care for your loved ones in numerous ways. I will help with everyday personal care such as bathing, eating, dressing, mobility, exercise, and companionship needs such as basic conversation, reminders, and interactive hobbies with my patients. I have experience providing a complete physical assessment and history of current and previous illness(es) for my clients, re-evaluating my patient nursing needs and making necessary revisions as my patients needs might change, administering medications and treatments as prescribed by the physician, and counseling my patient and family in meeting nursing needs because each situation requires different guidance.

I believe that we are all special, unique, different and with a purpose for our existence here on earth. For the many years that I have been taking care of the military men and women, I have loved the joy and appreciation that they give back. It is without a doubt that I will take a great care of your loved one just like I would care for my own. For me, life is a gift that comes from God and therefore, it must be respected.
