Registered Nurse Sought to Join an Integrated Senior Healthcare Team
Full Time - Ebensburg, Pa
Senior LIFE is changing the way America sees eldercare, and needs passionate, hardworking, innovative and versatile professionals to join its fast-growing teams of groundbreaking interdisciplinary care providers. At the center of this mission is the nursing staff, including Registered Nurses who provide direct and indirect care to assigned members, both in-home and in-center. This position requires a motivated self-starter who can work effectively and independently, as well as in partnership with medical and non-medical personnel, to deliver the most comprehensive care available. As such, nurse candidates must have strong clinical competency and advanced knowledge/skills.
Senior LIFE is committed to enhancing the ability of seniors to stay at home and live safely in the community as long as possible by coordinating comprehensive healthcare and supportive services for our members.
Senior LIFE is an innovative program that uses a team approach to provide seniors with medical, social, nutritional and rehabilitation services. These services are provided at the Senior LIFE Center and are accompanied with in-home nursing care, personal care, and other homecare services as needed. Senior LIFE makes it possible for seniors to remain at home, enjoying the comfort and reassurance of familiar surroundings while receiving the care they need.
Senior LIFE is a Medicare Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) operating as a LIFE (Living Independence for the Elderly) program in the state of Pennsylvania.
Because of the nature of the Senior LIFE community, all applicants must show a deep understanding of age-related characteristics and unique needs associated with eldercare. While this is a highly independent role, it equally requires that candidates thrive in team-oriented environments and be able to think outside of the box to ensure the most innovative, comprehensive care for members. Applicants should have at least one year of experience working specifically with an elderly or aging population, and hold a current RN license. Managerial experience is preferred, but not required.
