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.
