The Dementia Caregiver's Little Book of Hope [Kindle Edition]


Activities directors, other healthcare professionals and caregivers, celebrate Certified Nursing Assistants Day,
Here is just some of what they do
C.N.A.s provide hands on care to those who are unable to care for themselves. This includes bathing, dressing, feeding and toileting residents, among other things.

The C.N.A. ensures the safety and comfort of residents entrusted to their care. Among the most prized trait in C.N.A.'s is PATIENCE. This is a job that requires much patience. Everyday they are confronted with many challenges,

A CNA rides out the storms of Alzheimer's patients right alongside of them. They are the ones who search high and low throughout the building for a misplaced item that one of the residents is desperately looking for. They are the ones who hear "I want to go home" from the lips of the residents sometimes several times a night, and comfort them the best way they know how.They are the ones offering hugs and smiles in a dark and lonely world, where many times, the staff becomes the only family a resident has.

They are their source of love, acceptance and friendship. They are the ones who try to quell loneliness and depression in the people they care for, sometimes resorting to singing, sometimes just acting silly to coax a smile. They are the ones who comfort and hold the hand of residents as they slowly slip away.

All of these things and more, that is what they are.

So plan to honor CNAs this June
