If you have a deep desire to serve others, there are many career opportunities available to you in community care.
The administrator role in a skilled nursing or assisted living community is a multi-faceted one. It is the administrator’s job to manage finances, human relations, clinical operations and resident satisfaction within the center to ensure its overall success.
While the clinical staff in a senior living community focus on the physical and mental well being of residents, it is the role of the social services professional to enable each resident to function at the highest possible level of social and emotional wellness.
The growing demand for short-term rehabilitation services in senior living communities is creating more job opportunities for therapy professionals in this setting.
The admission or move-in process can be a confusing and sometimes scary one for residents and their families. Care coordination professionals in skilled nursing and assisted living communities help to answer questions, ease anxieties and make the transition as smooth as possible for all involved.
Activities professionals have a fun job, but it is also an important one. It is their responsibility to plan and implement programs and events in the senior living community that meet the various physical, social and spiritual needs and preferences of all of the residents.
While not directly involved in resident care, support services staff are essential to the overall resident experience. Housekeeping, laundry, maintenance and dietary staff help to create a warm, homelike environment in which residents live and receive temporary or long term care.
