ACTIVITIES ASSOCIATE For Senior Care Home
Posted on Dec 19, 2018 by Solano Life House
Solano Life House is a twice honored 2018 & 2017 Best of Assisted Living award recipient by SeniorAdvisor.com, which recognizes the top 1% in national senior care. Solano Life House ( ) is a medium sized RCFE located in Dixon. Our senior residence home cares for 38 residents. Although they are in our care because they need help with their daily lives, we believe the greater benefit of living in a small community environment is to remain active, have companionship and socialization among peers, as well as other generations. We don't believe in being a parking place for seniors to while away their days, but rather we strive to be a place of activity to the extent of each of our residents' abilities. The goal of Solano Life House is simple: to enhance our residents' lives. The motto for the activities department is simple: "Mental and physical stimulation for every resident, every day." Your goal will be to help us strive to uphold that motto.
We are seeking a positive, professional, outgoing, enthusiastic and dedicated senior care Activities Associate for our senior care home. You will be working hands on with others in the activities department, our care staff, as well as volunteers from the community, to have impact on the daily lives of our residents. We are big proponents of the power of personal music, so we provide ipod Touches with Pandora so all residents can quickly access a genre of interest. We also believe in the power of therapy pets, and like to have animals around as many days as possible, and also encourage residents' families to bring their friendly dogs when they visit. We have a fifteen passenger van for day excursions, and like to get our more active residents out and about on excursions twice per week. You'll also be helping us to connect what we do, to the community of Dixon and beyond, bringing the community into our home, and connecting us out to the community. We like remaining engaged with the world, and playing a role in our community as much as possible, rather than being removed from society, and so we strive to create an active environment where we think and act differently than one might expect with a senior care home. We want you to be a catalyst toward our goals.
Experience is great, but somewhat rare in this position, so most importantly, you should present a happy, positive, enthusiastic, patient, outgoing and opened personality, with the unending ability to create a fun and interesting atmosphere each day, and be a figurehead for our home, with the community. We would welcome someone who is creative, and thinks unconventionally, and is willing to explore new ideas, and not afraid of discovering lessons along the way. We believe that if everything is successful, you're not trying hard enough to know where the challenges can be found. We have a "NO BINGO allowed." sign at this home, because we strive to be better than that, with more stimulating and purposeful days, so if you think we need an adult sitter, you're not the person we're seeking. If you believe that you would have a passion for working with seniors and dedicating your days to having a positive impact on the quality of others' lives EVERY DAY, then please respond to this posting.
Please only apply if you can immediately pass a background check without any red flag issues. Pay is hourly, commensurate with experience, reviewed with a raise at the end of a 90 day probation if you are invited to remain. If you're a star, you'll be rewarded.
Solano Life House was honored as a 2017 & 2018 Best of Assisted Living award recipient by SeniorAdvisor.com, which recognizes the top 1% in national senior care. We thank the Solano County community, our wonderfully caring staff, and the dedicated leadership of our Administrator, Mary Felix.
