COMPANY: ENNISCOURT SKILLED NURSING & ASSISTED LIVING

Job Description

Dedication and commitment to dignity, care, caring, compassion, comfort and kindness - the true essence of EnnisCourt Skilled Nursing & Assisted Living.

Through our holistic approach, we nourish the complete person - mind, body, spirit and soul - in a sensory stimulating community of faith. Residents are truly at home in a sanctuary of peace where dignity, choice and individuality are sacred, while rehabilitative and rejuvenating therapies help them to maximize independence and discover personal fulfillment.

Families play an integral role in the individualized, person-centered care of their loved ones. Their partnership with our caregiving team forms a lifelong bond with EnnisCourt and creates cherished memories that bless and nourish families for the rest of their lives.

EnnisCourt is a privately-owned and operated facility with 50 Skilled Nursing beds and 32 Assisted Living units, including 12 units in a secured, keypad-accessible area specifically designed for residents with Alzheimer's disease, dementia, and other cognitive impairments.

We are hiring for the position of Activities Assistant.  Qualified candidates will have an outgoing, exuberant personality and will feel comfortable interacting with elderly residents who exhibit varying degrees of diminished physical and cognitive capabilities.  The Activities Assistant leads residents - in small or large groups and in one-on-one interaction - in meaningful, interesting activities intended to engage the resident physically, intellectually, socially and spiritually.  Materials to enhance each activity are provided, but the Activities Assistant may need to alter the printed directions “on the fly” to accommodate the residents’ needs… or switch to a different activity.  A familiarity with the Apple iPad or a willingness to learn how to navigate one is invaluable in leading one-on-one Tablet Engagement sessions.

Qualified candidates should have a familiarity with traditions of the Catholic faith, as they will be leading the praying of the Rosary and assisting the priest with daily Mass (leading responses, playing music CDs when called for, etc.).  Activities Assistants also assist the Dietary Services staff in serving lunch and supper “restaurant style” to residents on a daily basis and on holidays (when many families join their loved ones for meals).  Activities Assistants help to transport residents to and from the various activities, but are not responsible for wheelchair or bed transfers.  They set up the multi-purpose room for activities throughout the day, moving tables and arranging and stacking chairs.

Activities Assistants typically work an 8-hour shift, with staggered start times in the morning and end times in the afternoon.  Because residents must be safely returned to their apartments and the activity spaces must be cleaned up and readied for the following morning, sometimes it becomes necessary to work beyond the end of a scheduled shift, for which the Activities Assistant is compensated.  Activities staff members work during the morning and early afternoon of most holidays (which are large family celebrations at EnnisCourt) and receive double-pay for the hours worked.

We offer health insurance benefits including prescription coverage, dental, vision, life insurance, a 401k retirement plan, and PTO benefits.

Interested candidates are welcome to apply at our facility or submit your resume via fax.  Please call Terri Bova for more information.
