I became a cna, because I wanted to be in the medical field, but, I wasn't sure what I wanted to be. So, I became a cna to get my foot in the doors and because I wanted to help people. The best thing about being a cna is being there for people who needs you. Sometime your the only family that they have, the friendship, getting to know them. When I first started to work in a locked unit, with dementia & Alzheimer patients it was challenging to me because they would always repeat the same questions, ask for their parents, etc. It didn't make sense until I understood the disease, by doing my educational inservice, then I understood. I am 1of 10 children. I am a mother of 3 and a wife and I work in a nursing home full-time. I would like to work with geriatric at home instead. I have been a cna for 8 years and I enjoy talking to my residents and helping with their needs.
