THE PRIVATE HOME HEALTH AIDE
Many families find it necessary to provide the services of a certified nursing assistant to a loved one, but don’t want to disturb their overall quality of life or take them out of the comfort of their home environment. In these situations, a CNA can often find excellent career opportunities. The private home will most likely allow you to work one-on-one with the patient and become more like a trusted friend. Your duties may include light cooking, cleaning, and laundry along with normal CNA duties. If you get along well with the patient, this can be a very rewarding experience for both parties.
