  • Overview

    ACTIVITY AIDE needed for exciting, hands-on healthcare work

     

    Casual - Kittanning, PA

     

    Kittanning Care Center, conveniently located off Route 422 three miles east of Kittanning Borough, is a 120-bed Skilled Nursing Center, including a 42-bed Center for the Memory Impaired, and Specialty Care in Wound Management.

     

    As our center continues to grow and evolve, its commitment to providing non-medical services—specifically, fun, engaging activities—becomes increasingly important. The Activity Aide 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.
