Article as featured in HealthScope Magazine.

Jan Hall is no stranger at Morn­ing Pointe of Hixson, Tennessee. For the last 11 years, Hall has been serving the senior living community as a certified nursing assistant – a role that’s brought her a lot of va­riety, and a lot of joy.

She explains, “As a CNA, I’m responsible for meet­ing the needs of the residents in my care; this ranges from bathing and dressing to mobility and much more. Specifically, I work in memory care, so my role involves quite a bit of conversation and reassurance.”

One thing is for sure – it’s a job that keeps Hall busy.

“I am never bored!” laughs Hall. “The work of a CNA is so important, and part of why they’ll always be in demand. I feel fortunate to work with my residents every day and be a part of their lives.”

What is one of your happiest professional moments?

My happiest moments are any time I see little children with our residents. The children never fail to make them smile!

What influenced you to pursue your career?

I have always been at ease with senior adults. I have a lot of respect for them – this last generation has been through a lot.

What’s the key to making a great first impression?

Smile, and mean it.

What would you consider to be your main strengths?

Patience. When I don’t have any more, I’ll retire!

What is your philosophy when it comes to the care for your residents?

To treat them as a person who needs help, and I want them not to feel bad about needing that help. I know they would much rather be doing it themselves.
