A Resident Services Director is needed to create and oversee resident life within our unique Memory Care Community. Through a full schedule of mind/body activities you will lead and direct a team of "Naya's" (our highly-specialized team of care staff) who will, with your direction, create moments of joy throughout each day for those individuals living with dementia. "Naya" is an ancient Sanskrit word that means GUIDE, PERSON OF WISDOM, LEADER. Our approach is to support the whole person throughout their entire day providing a non-medical model of guidance, enrichment and compassion.
You will provide a schedule of daily activities for large groups and individuals, as well as plan outings for the group that allow them to fully experience the world around them in a safe and fun way. You will meet with all families and together create a working Life Story for each resident, so as to assist with in individualized, dynamic programming. If you have a passion for working with seniors and have experience in assisted living and memory care, then come on board with us.
