About You

You have an impressive analytical mind that comes up with solutions to problems without getting frustrated. Negotiation, diplomacy and tact are your trademarks, and you're known for always being so kind in your interactions with residents, families and team members.

You'll contribute to the Resident Care Plan by assessing the resident's psychosocial needs, facilitating resident care conferences, and assisting with resident and family counselling. You'll consult the Director of Care and the nursing and recreation team regarding resident care and their service plan development. You'll keep busy by staying up-to-date on legislative programs and social services related to complex care and reviewing and revising policies and programs as needed. You'll also maintain professional relationships with resident and community agencies, gathering information for bed matching and matching residents to available beds in consultation with the Director of Care/Administrator.
