The Story of a CNA: Katrina Gilbert

March 10th, 2014 by Linda Leekley in For CNAs, Good to Know!

Have you heard about the upcoming HBO documentary, PAYCHECK TO PAYCHECK: THE LIFE & TIMES OF KATRINA GILBERT?   Here’s an excerpt for the synopsis on HBO:

“Filmed over the course of one year in Chattanooga, Tenn., PAYCHECK TO PAYCHECK follows Katrina Gilbert, a 30-year-old mother of three who works as a certified nursing assistant in an extended-care facility while striving to address her own health-care issues. Overworked, underpaid, uninsured and lacking support, she chooses daily between purchasing her own medication and paying for the needs of her three children, which often leaves her struggling to make ends meet.

Despite these obstacles, Gilbert works to better her circumstances, applying for college courses that could raise her income. But circumstances often leave her slipping backwards, wondering if she will ever truly be able to get ahead.”

PAYCHECK TO PAYCHECK debuts MONDAY, MARCH 17 (9:00-10:15 p.m. ET/PT), exclusively on HBO.

If you don’t get HBO, the film will be available to view online for FREE from March 17th – 24th on hbo.com, ShriverReport.org and youtube.com.

Please watch this important documentary and let us know what you think!
