Certified nursing assistants are an integral part of the health care team at any facility, especially here at Cornwall Manor. Also called nurses’ aides, a career as a CNA is a rewarding profession that allows you to build relationships and strong bonds with the residents whom you care for. This job can be demanding, as it requires you to be a constant in the lives of your residents, but it’s also quite rewarding. Elderly residents can have difficulties with even common daily tasks, like bathing and feeding. As you help them complete these activities, you’ll feel a sense of pride and accomplishment.
