Licensed Social Worker (Part -Time)

Edenbridge Health
Washington, DC
  • Expired: February 28, 2023. Applications are no longer accepted.
Role: Social Worker (Part-Time LCSW, LICSW)

Organization: Edenbridge PACE at Skyland Town Center

Location: Washington, DC SE

Status: Part-Time

Mission: To allow frail elderly people to age in the location of their choosing and continue to lead
connected, meaningful lives

The Licensed Clinical Social worker Role role offers a unique opportunity to help build the first PACE (Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly) program in the District of Columbia within the framework of a supportive, innovative, and expert leadership team and company. Together with our coalition of strong partners within the community, Licensed Clinical Social worker will work closely with the Executive Director to carry out our Skyland PACE's model of care, and have a transformative impact on a particularly under-served community in Wards 7 and 8.

Seven core principles drive our approach to care. These include:
  1. Create and Sustain Meaningful Lives: Our model aims to help elders create and sustain meaningful lives - from social relationships, spirituality, cultural life, work, or service. We support elders with cognitive and physical disability to sustain meaning in their daily lives. We form close community partnerships to help elders engage outside our centers.
  2. Respect the Right to Independence: Edenbridge aims always to follow our participants' wishes. Wherever possible, participants maintain control over all decisions - from medical procedures to what to eat for dinner.
  3. Pay Attention to What Is Working Well: Our goal is to multiply the days each participant is glad to be alive. We encourage participants' positive experiences of daily life, supporting the things that matter most to them.
  4. Provide the Right Amount of Medical Care: Elders often have many diagnoses, medications and specialists, involving complex care decisions. We help our participants understand their choices. We deliver thoughtful, appropriate and personalized care, doing what our participants want - nothing more and nothing less.
  5. Guide All the Care Provided: We always follow and guide our participants' care - in their homes, at our center, in the hospital, and everywhere.
  6. Live with Our Communities, Not Just in Them: We work in communities where aging in place is valued and integrated care is a shared mission. We build deep relationships with community organizations (see video) beginning long before we open our doors. We aim to reach beyond the walls of the center to bring community members in and participants out for person-to-person connection.
  7. Employ Technology Thoughtfully, Not Aggressively: We use technology because it can enrich the lives of participants, improving care and connecting family members with their loved ones and their care providers. But we use technology only to complement - never replace - direct human interaction.

To help us achieve this mission, we are looking for an experienced Social Worker. This position will report to the Executive Director of Skyland PACE, and start in early September 2022.

  • Complete initial diagnostic and psychosocial evaluation for new participants
  • Conduct ongoing assessments
