Where is the voice of the direct-care worker in conversations about the realities of long term care?

So many times the discussion about working in nursing homes is filtered through everyone but those actually providing care and doing the work. No more! An intriguing and provocative blog, CNA Edge, has regular posts from caregivers working in nursing homes and assisted living settings.

Amy, Yang, and May have many years of experience caring for elders. They share everyday challenges, insights into the humanity of those they assist, and stories about where the long term care system breaks down.

Check out their blog for a truly unique perspective on what it’s like to work in long term care.
