CNA Practice Test: Care of Cognitively Impaired Residents 2

Every branch of medical care requires special skills and abilities. For a CNA, this can include working with clients who have cognitive impairments from conditions such as strokes, dementia, or Alzheimer’s disease. These clients are often residents in a long-term care facility or a memory care unit. Their needs can be challenging, but the job can also be rewarding. Many CNAs choose to work with these special residents on rehabilitation or memory care units for much of their careers. There can be about 3-6 questions about cognitively impaired patients, depending on which testing service your state uses for the CNA examination. Knowing good communication and basic care skills will assist you with these questions. This practice test will help you prepare with questions on some of these topics:
  • Situations that are helpful when working with dementia residents
  • Helping a resident with Activities of Daily Living (ADL)
  • Examples of reality orientation therapy
  • Supporting clients with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease

What Nurse Ingrid Tells Her New CNAs: Basic Lessons Regarding Our Seniors

From my perch at the homecare agency From early on at the homecare agency I started back in the nineties, I cherished the enthusiasm that my younger nursing assistant recruits brought along upon entering the elder care field.

Back in the thirteenth century, before there was anesthesia, surgeons used humor to ...
