Morning Pointe Senior Living
Jan Hall is no stranger at Morning Pointe of Hixson. For the last 11 years, Hall has been serving the senior living community as a CNA – 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.”
