National Certified Nursing Assistant Week
This week in June is dedicated to Certified Nursing Assistants (CNA) in celebration of the many contributions made by CNAs. A CNA typically helps patients, clients or consumers with healthcare needs under the supervision of a Registered Nurse (RN) or a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN).
CNAs are typically employed in hospitals, long-term care facilities, nursing homes or rehabilitation centers. CNAs deliver immediate, hands-on care to individuals and in addition to medical knowledge and certification, they possess
- Strong decision-making skills
- Respect for the individuals whom they serve
- Attention to detail
- Great communication skills
- Problem solving skills
- High ethical standards and integrity
- Ability to develop and maintain interpersonal relationships
Easterseals Crossroads employees CNAs to work in our Adult Day Services programs at our South and Main locations. Our CNAs assist with daily programming in our blended social and medical models of day services for adults 18+ years of age with developmental or acquired disabilities. We meet the needs of all consumers in a safe, supportive environment.
Our CNAs provide supervision and assistance with activities of daily living and include social and skill building activities such as group exercise, memory strengthening activities, current event lectures/discussions, games, creative expression, pet therapy, computer literacy, skills training/education and scheduled outings.
