Santa Rosa Press Democrat

Ashley Mora says her job as a nurse assistant is neither easy nor glamorous.

She’s at the entry level of the health care industry, providing hands-on care — bathing, dressing, grooming and feeding — for elderly people who can do little for themselves.

“You need to have an interest in other people’s welfare,” said Mora, 22, of Santa Rosa, who works at the Spring Lake Village senior living community. “It’s definitely not a glorious job.”
