I feel that I am in tune with people and helping them with all different activities. If its making things easier on someone who has trouble doing it then it brings joy to myself. I went to Pima Medical Institute for the Nursing Assistant Program. We spent some time at Friendship Village in Mesa. I learned a lot from shadowing other Nurses and Nursing Assistants. I also found myself going the extra mile by helping someone do the harder job that they may not be able to do any more, or just standing by to watch or assist them do a simple task. Sometimes when you become older or are injured its more difficult to shower, run errands or prepare your own meals, these are a few things I've been around to help out with.
