- Build a sense of community, maintaining a comforting atmosphere in 6 happy homes.

4. A CHANCE TO EXPLORE NEW PURSUITS & PARTNERSHIPS
- Our entire team is committed to finding new ways to provide better memory care, including discovering more rewarding pastimes for our residents.
- You'll train and direct caregivers to provide ongoing recreation and stimulation while you're in other homes.
- Though you'll create house-specific event calendars to guide these efforts, you'll also encourage ongoing individualized activities, matching residents' interests and abilities to create meaningful personal experiences.

5. COMPETITIVE PAY & BENEFITS PACKAGE
- Paid time off
- Overtime pay above 40 hours/week
- Vacation time
- Medical, dental, vision and life insurance
