A Hospice Certified Nursing Assistant (C.N.A.) provides basic personal care for the hospice patient.
They will often be the team member who spends the most amount of time with the patient and their family since they are the ones providing in-home personal care services in the patient’s home and assisting them with the activities of daily living (ADLs).
Transitions Hospice Care C.N.A.s are compassionate personnel that provide personal care services to hospice patients. The C.N.A. is an important part of the Transitions Hospice Care Team and participates in meetings in which the patient’s health and care plan is discussed.
The following list is comprised of services which a C.N.A. may provide to the patient:
- Bedside care/visits
- Bathing: shower, bed bath, tub bath
- Dressing and grooming
- Shaving and nail care
- Communication with health care team
