Overview

ACTIVITY AIDE

 

Full Time Daylight With Weekends – Altoona, PA

 

Altoona Center for Nursing Care is a 120-bed Skilled Nursing Facility conveniently located in Downtown Altoona. As our center continues to grow and evolve, its commitment to providing non-medical services - specifically, fun, engaging activities - becomes increasingly important. The full time Activity Aide, working with the Activity Director, will be vital to the planning, development, implementation, and oversight of all in-center and external activities for our center.

Responsibilities

Responsibilities of the Activity Aide 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
  • Other duties as assigned by supervisor

Qualifications

This is a high energy, hands-on job that 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. Prefer someone with activity aide experience. A high school diploma or equivalent is required. Candidate must be able to provide driver's license or personal identification card at time of interview and must be able to pass a criminal background check and drug screen. EOE
