I became a CNA initially to assist my family with the care of a family member. I wanted to ensure the care she received was quality, and of the highest standard after noticing the care she was given while she was hospitalized. I took a 6 month course and became certified. The personal joy I felt was immeasurable when it came to the smile on her face, even something as basic as allowing her to choose her clothes mattered when giving care, and when she could no longer speak a simple touch of the hand was most welcome. I was 18 then and knew the general way to care for an adult, over the years I have a sense of love and well being, knowing at the end of the day I offered some one help in a place that's often fast paced, where sometimes in a rush things are over looked in the course of a day. I took an opportunity along with the training and made a life long accomplishment of over 25 years of service in my heart and my hands in the work I do as a CNA.
