Lis,ing Well Wednesday, August 22, 2001 - The Malakoff News - PAGE 7A Sh ' m ny ap e 00,ears a c s... By Amy Dowell and Melanie TrammeU Ourmedical professional for the week focuses on the As- sistant Director of Nurses for Cedar Lake Nursing Home, Qwalene Nix, LVN. Qwalene has worked at the nursing home for about 16 months but has been the ADON for two months. She is also responsible (among other jobs) for the Minimum Data Sheet Report, which is monthly paper work required by the State which reports on each resident. Qwalene says she abso- lutely loves working with Ge- riatric patients and finds her job very rewarding and satis- fying. She says she wants the residents to feel at home and have an active part, to feel they are definitely family and she loves the interaction with the residents her job allows. Qwalene was born in Bloomington, Illinois, but the family moved to Dallas when she was three years old. She attended Dallas Schools and graduated from Sunset High School in Oak Cliff. Shortly after graduation, the family pulled up stakes and rved West to the San Diego area of California. It was here she met and married Georgia na- tive and transplanted Califor- nian, Marvin, who was a truck  driver. Ti:fe ayemx:alrror-- '  .........

Corsicana • Athens 675-7069 of E1 Toro Restaurant in Pal- estine. And youngest is 16- year-old Qwalene or Qwa as she is known to friends and family. She is a straight A Honor Roll student and sophomore at Cayuga High School. She loves basketball, volleyball and tennis. The family also has three cats - Twister, Rowdy and Juliett and one dog, a minia- ture dashound, Baby, who are all intricate members of the family. After having her family and raising them all, for the most part, Qwalene decided to nur- ture her love for people and for helping them, and went back to school. She gradu- ated from TVCC in Palestine in 1994 as an LVN and says this is a decision she loves. In her spare time she loves spending lime with her family, fishing, hunting, crafting and loves to make Raggedy Ann and Andy dolls, sewing and especially enjoys singing. She sings mainly at church but is often asked to sing at funerals of friends, which she consid- ersan honor and feels to do this is the one last thing you can do for someone, so she tries to make it special. Qwalene is proud of Ce- dar Lake Nursing Home and proud of her job. She says everyone strives to give each resident individualized treat- ment and get to know them on a personal basis. She says the Home is a caring, loving, sustaining place where ev- eryone is taken care of prop- erly. She says she has an open door policy and any- one, resident, staff, or fam- ily member, can see her at anytime, about anything. So, we hope this has given you a little insight into Qwalene. Go by the nursing home and meet her. Look for the nurse in the nursing cap - she still wears hers be- cause she says she worked hard for it and is proud of it! Thanks Qwalene, for a job well done!
