I was wondering what a CNA does in a assisted living home on a daily bases. like what a typical 2nd shift or 3rd shift might look like.

Missingyou, CNA

Specializes in Long term care. Has 20 years experience.

It depends on th e facility. I've worked at assisted living facilities that were memory care and it was basically the same as a nursing home only decorated prettier. I've also worked ALF where my main task was doing safety checks & maybe standing by during bathing to ensure safety & medication reminders.
