Lotonia Davis Broyles, CNA
I have worked as a certified nurse assistant (CNA) for Caring Circle since 2002. What I enjoy most about my job is going into a client’s home and making sure they are clean, comfortable, and pain free. I especially like serving clients that live in nursing facilities because they do not often receive a lot of visitors. It brightens my day to spend extra time with them. When family cannot be there in-person, we can be there for their loved one.
All caregivers count, I just want to do the best job that I can, and I always aim to please. I want people to be happy, that is what I feel I am called to do. When it’s time for me to leave, I make sure to leave a smile on their face, and they almost always do the same for me.
A patient’s death is still difficult; what gets me through is knowing that I contributed to making their last days a little better and that ultimately, they are at peace.
Working in hospice for many years has given me the knowledge to assist my friends, help them navigate healthcare options, and answer their questions specifically about hospice services– it feels good to give back!
