As a nursing assistant, depending on the shift you work, your role is to assist the residents in daily life activities such as bathing, dressing, meal preparation, and monitoring/taking vitals to name a few. In the mornings, residents wake up at their own pace and you assist with dressing. Then breakfast is cooked and served. During the morning there are many activities the residents can participate in such as therapy, crafts, games, and movies. Lunch is made and served. Similar scenario for second shift but essentially in reverse. It is a great honor to work at a place like this where you get to help residents feel at home and make them feel loved and cared for.
