It was overall a pretty god experience. A typical day started at 3:00 pm and ended at 11:30pm. I would help residents with daily activities, hygiene, eating, cleaning,transporting, and the like.
When I came to work there it was a transition time so the supervisor who was changing positions wasn't there due to health reasons. There was a lot of miscommunication. I learned how to talk and care for people and that CNA is tough work. I decided not to continue because it was physically taxing on my body and very emotional. The hardest part is dealing with death of a resident and the most enjoyable part is helping people in general and realizing that without a CNA there would be a lot of suffering.
