Many senior caregivers are Certified Nursing Aides, Certified Home Health Aides or Certified Personal Care Assistants (the Department of Health in each state establishes the guidelines for caregivers staffed by licensed nursing homes, assisted living companies and senior home care agencies).
The training requirements for certification allow the hiring senior care companies to know the person will understand how to interact and care for seniors appropriately, both physical care and emotional care. If you are a caregiver interested in obtaining certification or already have certification status in your test (you must complete a certification course at an accredited school, complete clinical assignments in the field and then pass the state exam), you may take answer Caregiverlist's "Question of the Day", take the 10-Question Sample Nursing Aide test or take the full Certified Nursing Aide Practice Test.
What kinds of questions are asked on the Certified Nursing Aide test? You will find questions about what temperature bath water should be, use of a catheter and feeding tube, memory loss, range-of-motion exercises, bed sores, taking someone's temperature, managing for bed sores and questions about how to properly report certain items to managers and interacting with difficult clients.
Take our Sample Certified Nursing Aide test - it is free and you'll probably learn something and even if you know all the answers, being told you are "brilliant" is kind of nice!
