Thank you for this. I teach the CNA class in Farmington NM. Im studying for my AGNP. My mom is in a nursing home with dementia. Having first hand experience I can relate to everything you have said. I have been discouraged but this brings me hope first as a daughter and second to educate CNAs on the important dog knowing your resident, keeping their dignity, and family involvement. This has inspired me to follow your path and advocate and place more accountability on one, the DONs education level and commitment to residents and not to fear loosing or not being liked by the CNA staff. Thank you again! Beth Jones
