    I agree, and thank you all....It's a great calling and one not lightly or easily taken. And I hope I always have the emotional endurance which will be required. You seem like the most caring people to comment so wisely.... Reva

    Can I find employment at my age??

    and I'm looking for advice about pitfalls in this type of training. My work history is not good BUT I now work with an emotionally disturbed family and after a whole lifetime of searching, feel that I've found my niche. I also have a BA in psychology. So, assuming I complete the CNA program successfully, can I even dare to hope for a group-home type job requiring psych/social work saavy and some medical knowledge? I'm so concerned about doing the right thing now, after a lifetime of blind alleys and doors slamming in my face. My strongest asset is the knowledge of what it feels like to be hurt by a world which doesn't tolerate personal problems, insecurities, etc. I have grown in wisdom as a result of this...and I want a future which respects human imperfection and will not reject me out of hand...due to my own.....
