I've been a CNA for over 10 years, working with the elderly. I've done Home Care and I've worked in a nursing home. Its a great feeling when you walk into a home and see your client light up with a big smile. Sometimes I'm the only person my client sees all day. Working in a nursing home is a different environment. I've taken care of a lot of sick people. I'm a caring, compassionate, and lovable person. I love to make people laugh, even if it's for a little while. That little while takes their minds off of their pain, the fact that I can do that, at the end of the day, I feel like I had a good day, a rewarding day. If I ever end up needing someone to take care of me, I would want someone just like me.
