One night, a young girl by the name of Heather went to the nursing home with her mother where she worked for the very first time. Her mother was a nurse there and had found out she could bring Heather to work with her so she came along. It was there that Heather had met a sweet old lady with dementia whom she had had the pleasure of knowing for a few short months, but in a few short months she learned a lot.

...ears still well up in Heather’s eyes every time she thinks about that special moment. Heather doesn’t know why he took her hand but she didn’t mind at all. Heather knew he must have needed someone to just be there so she just stood there holding his hand. This was a precious gift to Heather. She looks back on this memory with sadness but warmness in her heart and she will treasure the memory forever. The old man passed two weeks after. Heather was glad that she got to care for the old man in his last days. It made a difference in the old man’s life and hers. That’s what makes working with people so special. It’s not about the pay, it’s the reward you get from the people you care for. It’s the little things that make it worth it. At the nursing home where she took the CNA class at she learned a lot about interacting with many people and helping them meet their needs.
