Motivated by her father’s struggle with cancer, aspiring physician’s assistant Amanda Becker works at Chatham Ridge Assisted Living as a CNA and Medicine Technician. She enjoys attending to the needs of the residents. ““Time management is the number one skill of a caretaker, because sometimes we have 25 residents to ourselves. Even if they don’t all need attention, you still need to make sure they are safe,” she says. “They’re all like my grandparents. It’s cool to get to know them so well, and to learn the little bits about their lives. I think I appreciate them as much as they appreciate me.”
