I took my mother (80 years old) there to visit her friend (90 years old) and I sat in the car and waited. My Mom only stayed for around a half hour, but was crying as she walked to the car. She was in a stupor of tears and I got out and held on to her the rest of the way. She sat in the car and could hardly talk. The experience of seeing her friend in such a pathetic place and in such a terrible condition was overwhelming. She held me and asked me, "Please, don't let me end up in a place like this. If I become so old or sick that I need to be cared for, please, I want to stay at home with you." The image of her sitting there telling me that flashes by occasionally. She DID stay home in her bed and passed peacefully there with my arms around her. I cannot imagine working in a place like that or ever even visiting there.

My grandmother had to stay there briefly bc of a fall at home and her insurance wouldn't cover a at home nurse coming weekly to help her. We too didn't see much benefit from there and it was as horrible as what ur mother probably visioned. Most definitely not a place for any human with feelings. It will bring the tears everytime. In my opinion if the people working there don't enjoy their jobs and just make the lives of the elderly somewhat enjoyable while they can them they don't need to b in that field.

I agree that they should make their lives enjoyable, that is the point. But good luck getting anyone to actually like being a cna!! That is, I am sure, the majority of the problem... would YOU like being a CNA? People from the outside looking in has NO FREAKING IDEA what the job entails and how crappy it is.

People can sit and say "they don't need to be in that field" but they have no idea what they are even talking about....

I understand this and some people are only there for a pay check but some of the individual's there are not lucky enough to have family to keep them and take care of them I for one would never put my parents or grand parents in a nursing home because the way I see it when I was young they was there taking care of me so I am going to be there for them as well but also because that's my family and I would never do that

Yes I sure would love to b a cna and I would hope one day I can achieve that and more. It's a very difficult job but if u can't handle the job of working with the elderly and showing them respect then u shouldn't be working in a nursing home.

The thing you got figure out is if this is what u want to do. In every feild you work in everybody is gonna have something bad to say about it. I work in the medical feild and I promise you there is good and bad in this feild. I love the work and just cause people hate there job or where they work, they will never decide if I like what I do or if I like where I work. If it is a cna you want to be then go, dont ask everybody else. Cause who has the right to say who you can be?

I have been a CNA since 2004, and I LOVE IT!! Yes, there are drawbacks to the job, just as any other job. I, unfortunately, did my clinicals there in my CNA classes. I really don't recall what exactly it was, but a majority of the workers hated it there. It smelled, the CNAs were rude, not necessarily mean, to the residents, the nurses looked like stuck-up snobs, literally not telling a resident they were about to receive an insulin shot, they would just jab the needle in their arm or tummy! Luckily, I went elsewhere seeking a job and found a great one. Now, if you want to know about LifeCare in Jefferson City, let me know so I can clear my schedule. I ABSOLUTELY HATE THAT PLACE WITH A PASSION!!! My advice would be to look at other places that offers contracted CNA classes. It takes a special kind of person to be a CNA, unfortunately many that are, isn't the kind. Being a CNA can be a dangerous job.

being a nurse or a cna is a dangerous job, in more ways than one.
most people who say they love it don't even think of the worst dangerous part or probably dont care about this reason, which is scary because a lot of people are like that,.. they ignore the biggest risk out there. which just puts you and your family's health at risk for the rest of their lives... I have heard the stories about these risks, and there is no way I could ever be in the medical field because of them
