Nursing Home Heroes
This DVD, filmed in a nursing home, shows the close and caring relationships which can be developed in long term care between staff and residents. Interviews of nursing assistants and the elderly residents provide an understanding of compassion and quality care. The Director of Nursing says, ”It would all be impossible without nursing assistants, they are the single most important person to the resident.”
Share with your staff or students the rewards of being a nursing assistant. It’s far more than providing daily care. “ We listen.” “We are there for them.” “We are often the last person in their life.” These are some of the comments made by the nursing assistants. Adding, “If you’re a person who wants to make a difference for older people — this is a career that will give meaning to your life.” When comforting a crying resident, a nursing assistant asks “Why the tears?” The resident responds, “I’m afraid I’m going to lose you.”
This DVD will show appreciation for what nursing assistants do every day and motivate new staff. For students choosing a career, this provides an introduction into the power and rewards of helping the frail elderly who are no longer able to help themselves.
