Proactive Nursing Solutions was founded by a registered nurse who saw the
need for geriatric care in the Shreveport/Bossier Community.Â The aging
process is often accompanied by chronic disease and general debilitation.
The devastation of these issues, if caught and addressed appropriately and
early on, can be minimized. It is the goal of Proactive Nursing Solutions to
assist people with chronic disease to remain healthy, at home, and free of
any unnecessary hospitalizations.
Jennifer Turman Kimball, a Shreveport resident and founder of Proactive
Nursing Solutions, is a registered nurse who recognized the need for
services in the area after working in the healthcare industry since 1988.
She has extensive experience in hospice care, rehabilitation, psychiatric
care and nursing home care. She holds a nursing degree from Florida
Community College at Jacksonville, a Bachelor of Science in psychology from
Louisiana State University at Shreveport, and a Master of Education in
psychological services from Marymount University in Arlington, Virginia. In
addition, she holds her nursing certification in gerontology. Jennifer has
an active nursing license in the state of Louisiana as well as Texas.
Proactive Nursing Solutions is proud to partner with Humana at Home, in an
effort to provide to provide nurse care managers in the Shreveport/Bossier
area. It is the nurse care manager's role to provide support to clients who
are referred to them for 30 days after their discharge from a
hospitalization. This "Transitions" program is a tremendous effort to keep
out Medicare-aged population from unnecessary hospitalizations.
Additionally, our care managers take on those clients considered VERY
high-risk in a "Long Term In Home" program where they make weekly visits to
ensure clients are well and their needs are all met. We maintain a strong
belief that, by assessing need and drawing on community resources, there are
no needs that should go unmet.
