I just started working at an ALF. My first official day is friday in the Alzheimer's wing.

Do you get emotional sometimes?
What are their demeanors like for the most part?
Do they refuse their meds alot?

My mom worked as a CNA in the Alzheimer's unit for 5 years. She finally had to move to the assisted living section. She says she had to help lift many of the Alzheimers patients and it really hurt her arms and shoulders. My mom worked as a CNA for 25 years and loved it.

Has any of them attacked you?
Was it bad?

Have they ever thought you were someone else? Like their spouse/child/grandchild?

How often do they have 'spells?'
