Caregiving Monday: Thank a CNA

Caregiving Monday: Thank a CNA

Do you have a loved one in a nursing facility?

CNAs are there to assist the nurses and help with activities of daily living

Take the time to thank a CNA {Certified Nursing Assistant}.  While everyone’s job is important and the facility should work as a team, the CNA’s take on the bulk of the work for a fraction of the cost.

I often hear frustrations over how long it takes to answer a call light or about a need.  In my position, I can listen but I do not have the skills to assist with activities of daily living {such as dressing, toileting, etc}.

While there are some CNAs that may not pull their weight, the majority of CNAs work hard.  They often have ten or more residents to care for at a time.

So the next time you visit your loved one I encourage you to take a moment to thank a CNA.

How has a CNA helped you?
