    Did you start? Do you like it? I loved assisted living. I found that it is holistic nursing; everything from feet to emotional support. I even counseled on a resident upset at her dining companions who were always arguing. I did not get involved, lol, but encouraged her to set limits at the table and not to pick sides. I served coffee at dinner and spoke to every resident. Some only spoke up then, like the woman who always told me at dinner (in hushed tones) that she needed a physic and she hadn't had a BM since she was there, which was two years. I trouble shooted everything from incontinence issues to fears of leaving their rooms. Validation Therapy was incredibly helpful. The pay was around $16/hr, RN, but that was a few years ago, and I would ask for more now.
    Good luck,

    I work in England and I get 4.30Pence an hour.

    It seems that for the job that we do here in England as Care Assistants in America as CNA'S u get a lot more.

    I feel that the money that we get is little for what we have to do. I think that it should be at least 5 an HOUR.
