Helping You Help Your Loved On​e

I am a registered nurse licensed by the state of Arkansas and a Board Certified Geriatric nurse by the National American Nurses Credentialing Center and a member of the Arkansas Gerontological Society . As a Geriatric Nurse, for eighteen years, I have increased education and knowledge about the health of the elderly and the aging process.  I have been an assistant Director of Nursing at nursing homes in Lasing, Kansas and Lonoke, Arkansas. I was a field nurse for fifteen years and a supervisor for two years for the Division of Aging and Adult Services, Department of Human Services.  After retiring from the Department of Human Services, I formed "Vining Geriatric Care Consultant, LLC". I have the experience to work with families and older adults to ensure all needs are met in a caring and respectful manner.  I also work closely with two Elder Law Attorneys, home care providers, hospitals, nursing homes, assisted living facilities, Alzheimer's Arkansas and the Alzheimer's Association. 


I understand the needs, frustration and exhaustion of the caregiver; as I was the caregiver of my mother, who was diagnosed with Dementia for six years.  I learned from my personal experience, that I could not do it alone.


Having this experience helps me understand what you are going through.  Together we can find the needed services for your loved one.
