My mother has been a CNA for well over 20 years. For my first shadowing day in elementary school, I decided that I wanted to go with her to work. While there, I got the opportunity to see what the day in the life of a CNA was like. I instantly fell in love! Although the job was not a glamorous one, nothing compared to the feeling that I got from helping the elderly. I fed them, helped to get them dressed, transported them to different areas of the nursing facility (as little as I was) and I even helped them to play a few games of Bingo. After that first day there, they could not keep me away. I logged so many volunteer hours in the years that followed that I could have been considered a part-time employee. I have a passion for helping people, especially children and the elderly. Volunteering at the Nursing Facility made me feel useful. After my grandmother came home a few weeks after her heart surgery, I took some time off to take care of her. I love to talk, sew, paint and cook.
