Overview

Active, engaged ACTIVITY AIDE sought for innovative senior care center

 

Full Time - Beaver Falls, PA

 

Providence Care Center is a state-of-the-art Rehabilitation Facility and a 180-bed Skilled Nursing Center which includes a Center for the Memory Impaired. We also offer a new web-based Wound Specialty Care Program.

Occupying the multi-story building, which used to be Providence Hospital, the facility features a beautifully landscaped center courtyard. Though located within the city limits of Beaver Falls, Providence Care Center serves all of Beaver County, as well as parts of Lawrence and Allegheny Counties.

 

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. Our residents enjoy activities every day of the week- some weekend work is required.

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.
