Yesterday my CNA and I made cookies and danced. While in the kitchen stirring she did the foot dance moves while I did the top half dance moves from my wheelchair. Doing that for me was deeply touching.
A CNA does more than cook and clean. She is often emotional support as well. Like health care providers, the CNA has to deal with the whole person, not just the physical self. That little dance we did, with a girlish laugh after, gave the whole me a warm smile and a moment of deep gratitude.
