A person must know their own value. As we pay tribute to our women and men who serve on the frontline of long term care, keep in mind the best way to communicate how you feel about them and their service is to stop a CNA in action this week and look them in the eye and say, "I know I don't say it enough, no one possibly could, but you matter and you are a valued part of this team!"
I have always been a person who never just dips a toe in the water. I jump in whole hog! Most of the time it works very well for me. I've been this way as long as I can remember.
Nationally recognized speakers and educators will be featured Wednesday and Thursday at the 14th annual meeting of the National Association of Health Care Assistants.
