    Colonial Park Care Center is a 198-bed Skilled Nursing Center offering an expansive mix of services rarely found under one roof. Our beautifully landscaped grounds allow those who are able to enjoy the outdoors with friends and family who visit.


    As our center continues to grow and evolve, its commitment to providing Resident Centered Care—specifically, fun, engaging spontaneous and scheduled 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 of the Activity Assistant

    • Assists with preparation of 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
    • Arranges activity area and prepares necessary equipment for activity programs
    • Managing activities volunteers, in conjunction with the Activity Director


    Requirements of the Activity Assistant

    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.  Previous experience working with dementia is preferred.
