We assist our elders with things like bathing, dressing appropriately, going to the bathroom, taking their medication, cooking, and cleaning. Interested job candidates must be friendly, patient, and understanding of Elders limits (Alzheimer’s/dementia/ physical limitations) Our elders are delicate, and so flu shots are strongly encouraged. If you are anti-vax or refuse vaccination, please consider this when applying.
We do NOT tolerate frequent call ins. We are a 24 hour care community, and in order to meet the needs of our frail and elderly residents, we cannot employ people who frequently need to call in to work. If you have a complicated life and are not able to come to work when you are scheduled, then please look elsewhere for employment.
You must be able to lift, be on your feet for long periods of time, avoid distractions like texting/chatting at work, and get along with co-workers.
State Requirements: Must be able to pass a live-scan background check, or have an exemption with the state of CA. TB testing required (TB test must be done within 6 months of applying) Experience a plus, but willing to train special inexperienced candidates who show promise and commitment.
Perks: Liberal time off request policy/flexible schedule Payroll advances for trusted employees As many or as few hours as needed *When Scheduled in Advance*. Warm and family-like environment.
We have 2 houses with 6 residents in each, and our team has about 14-16 people. We are a 24 hour Care setting, meaning that we schedule 1-2 caregivers at each house. There are 3 shifts, 2 day shifts and a "Noc" shift. We use the "Alternate Work Week Schedule" and are registered through the Department of Industrial Relations for some of our shifts, meaning that the shifts are longer than the normal 8 hours, but the hourly rate is all straight pay and not OT. In this context, instead of working 5 days in 8 hour shifts, our staff work 4 days with 10 hour shifts, or 3 days with 12 hour shifts.
Our residents often need assistance with ADLS such as bathing, grooming, toileting, meal prep, cleaning, and medication management.
