What a Great CNA Can Mean for the Elderly

What a Great CNA Can Mean for the Elderly

If your elderly parent needs home companion care, a CNA is often the best way to go. One of the many reasons that this is true is because when a patient needs companionship and help with the tasks involved in daily living but not skilled nursing care, a CNA can provide these things at a lower cost.

At Physicians Choice Private Duty, the caliber of our CNAs is second to none because we realize how critical these health care professionals are to keeping seniors in their homes. That’s why we look for CNAs who are exceptionally committed to the well-being of their patients.

HealthGrad.com’s article, 11 Must Have Qualities of a Great CNA, outlines some of the qualities truly great CNAs have that set them apart from their peers. These include things like:

 

  • Patience
  • Adaptability
  • Strong Work Ethic
  • Compassion and Empathy
  • High Attention to Detail
  • Sense of Humor
  • Great Communication Skills
  • Tolerance

 

 

While it is important that your loved one’s physical needs are being met, their emotional needs are equally important. If you would like to learn more about the importance of choosing the right CNA for your parent, call Physician’s Choice Private Duty at 402-331-2273.
