Overview

Entry level ACTIVITY ASSISTANT needed for exciting, hands-on healthcare work

 

Full Time - Highland Park, Pa

 

Highland Park Care Center is a 144-bed Skilled Nursing Center, which includes a Center for the Memory Impaired. Located in Highland Park, the Center is just four miles from Downtown Pittsburgh, with easy access to public transportation. The Center features three large outdoor balconies, an activities center, and off-street parking.

 

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.
