Elwyn California Residential Programs

Elwyn California provides care for people with Developmental Disabilities and skilled nursing needs via a sophisticated, state of the art, alternative model of care. People live in single family homes, with individual bedrooms and all the typical "home-like" amenities, as opposed to having to live in larger congregate hospital-like settings.

Likewise, our employees enjoy a smaller, more personal and home-like working environment, as well as the opportunity to provide a very high level of quality care based upon the smaller number of residents (typically 4-5 per home) and the high staff to resident ratio.

Elwyn California is currently seeking a LICENSED STAFF - Part-time or Per Diem (PRN) to work with our team in a residential group homes. This is a non-exempt level position reporting to the Program Administrator.
