Some of the hardest working, most loving staff members in long-term care are Certified Nursing Assistants. These employees are the ones working most closely with the residents. Residents often shared with me who was the best at assisting them in bathing, helping them to look extra nice for an outing, who made them laugh, whose shoulder was the best for a cry. The Nursing Assistants are very important in the lives of residents and the working of a facility.

June 16-23, 2011 is Nursing Assistant Week. If you know one of these people, please take a minute to thank them for their work.
