Overview

ACTIVITY ASSISTANTS needed for exciting, hands-on healthcare work

 

Evenings & Some Weekends 

Hours:

Weekdays 3:00PM/4:00PM - 8:00PM

Weekends 9:30AM - 6:00PM

 

 

Nestled in the woods near Forbes Regional Hospital, Woodhaven Care Center is one of Monroeville's best kept secrets. A rural setting in an urban location, the Center is just five minutes from Pennsylvania Turnpike Exit 6 for easy access from any region around Pittsburgh.

Woodhaven is a 120-bed Skilled Nursing Center with an 18-bed Specialty Care Unit offering a new web-based Wound Care Program.

 

As our center continues to grow and evolve, its commitment to providing non-medical services—specifically, fun, engaging activities—becomes increasingly important. The Activity Assistant will be vital to this planning, development and implementation, working with the Activity Director to oversee all in-center and external activities for our center.

Responsibilities

Responsibilities include:

  • Preparing a monthly calendar of daily activities, and distributing information along with weekly menus to all residents
  • Organizing and implementing activities for residents and families
  • Assisting with outings, including transportation and logistics
  • Maintaining daily activity attendance and preparing ongoing reports to show participation
  • Communicating with nursing staff and other care providers to help residents best participate in upcoming activities
  • Securing substitute events or activities in the event of cancellations or inclement weather
  • Managing activities volunteers, in conjunction with the Activity Director
  • Monitoring equipment and supply inventories, and updating orders/requests

Qualifications

This is a high energy, hands-on job and requires outstanding interpersonal, communication and management skills, plus a genuine desire to improve residents’ well-being. Because of the nature of the community, extreme patience, empathy and compassion are essential, as is at least one year of experience working with a geriatric population. A high school diploma is required.
