I have been a cna since 1996 and have worked with the elderlyin many circumstances,helping them with things from assissted to full care. Independence is important and feeling they are needed and matter and keeping their dinbity in tact,humor is also needed ,having fun makes people feel good.I have also worked as pt assit. for 6 yrs.I think watching a client get back to their life is rewarding it is not always the possible outcome but understandable .some of their stories are funny,jnteresting,and knowligable.Older people can be difficult at times but once they trust you it becomes easier.I have reised 3 jids boys live in seb on a dairy ,have q 13 yr grandaughter and a cna i have a garden,cook dependable car.
