About Bayleigh Chase
Located on a 35-acre campus in historic Easton, Bayleigh Chase is a not-for-profit life plan community that affords residents a lifestyle of flexibility and choice to live life on their own terms. Bayleigh Chase offers independent living options in its villas, cottages and apartment homes, as well as a continuum of supportive living services, including assisted living, neurocognitive support, outpatient and short-term rehabilitation, skilled nursing and diagnostic and treatment support through the Samuel and Alexia Bratton Neurocognitive Clinic.
A Certified Geriatric Nursing Assistant (CGNA) is an important member of the Integrace care team dedicated to the well-being of each resident. Working under the direction of a licensed nurse (RN or LPN) the CGNA builds a respectful and warm relationship with each resident being cared for while providing hands on support and nursing care in a variety of settings within Integrace communities. These settings can include, Assisted Living, Comprehensive Care and Home and Community Based Services. The work focus of a CGNA will vary depending on which of these settings has been chosen for a work assignment and the individual needs of the resident. CGNAs provide various levels and types of care to our residents to include assistance with or completion of activities of daily living (ADLs): bathing, dressing, dining, and help with personal appearance, bathroom assistance, mobility and restorative care. Working closely with each resident, the CGNA will often obtain information such as vital signs, weight and height and will be required to not only accurately document this (and other) information; but to also effectively communicate this information to the nurse and other members of the care team. Nursing assistants are a helpful liaison between the nurse and the resident. The nursing assistant is the person whose relationship with each resident makes Integrace communities "home."
