Soul, Management, Challenge.
Our residents are some of the most interesting, spectacular people you will ever meet. Their backgrounds are diverse, they come from all over, and they are real people who have lived real lives. They have a story and if you have a minute they'd love to tell it.
Our long term care residence is home to so many fabulous seniors. We, and all those who live in our care facility have become their home and in some instances we have become their family. Our long-term residents have been parents, friends, spouses and caretakers and now it's their turn to be taken care of. They deserve the best and this is what we strive to give them.
The DOC DNA.
A Director of Care is a special mix of humanity, values, leadership, inspiration and business acumen. You oversee the care management of our most treasured elderly population and everything that goes with it. You manage a large staff of approx 60, as well as health needs, budgets, scheduling, recruiting, motivating, and retaining our dedicated RN's, LPN's & Care Aide's. You coordinate systems and procedures, manage reporting measures, meet with the executive team and report to the Administrator direct. This is a career building block that could take you all the way to the executive suite.
We need compassion, but values based. We want case specific solutions, yet set in principles. We want kindness but with consideration. We want hard nosed business but not at the expense of people. We want to hit our budgets, but not sacrifice services. We want you to hold people accountable, while at the same time motivating them.
Dilemma? Contradiction? - Not for the right person.
Breathe leadership life into 100+ people and several supervisors. You're it, you are their world. You lead them. All the resident's families are looking to your policies, your communications skills, your ability to generate trust. You will grow in this position, you will hit new levels of self.
