Want to become part of a community of caring staff? There are several opportunities for employment at Vicar’s Landing Home Health. Whether you are a trained and Certified Nursing Assistant, or would like to bring your compassionate heart and positive personality into the lives of seniors, positions are available for those with various levels of training. These opportunities include becoming a Companion for our clients, or working as a Home Health Aide.
As a Companion for Vicar’s Landing Home Health, you will be responsible for providing care and company to clients. This is a vital role – loneliness and isolation in retirement is a near epidemic. We are intrinsically social creatures, with isolation having dire health impacts both physically and mentally, so Companions take on a meaningful and essential duty. You can make a real and genuine difference in the lives of our members as a Companion, where you will be responsible for non-medical aspects of senior care such as light housekeeping, medication reminders, laundry and meal preparation, as well as providing clients with the peace of mind knowing that they are safe and supervised. Along with company and assistance, Companions can be a source of entertainment to our clients – be it a recreational activity like a board game, or a stimulating conversation, Companions keep our clients engaged and connected. You may be required to transport seniors when needed, so a driver’s license is a necessity.
As a Home Health Aide or Certified Nursing Assistant you will provide the services of a Companion, yet your training allows you to also offer a personal care aspect to clients, in the comfort of their home. You may be required to take and record vital signs, help with ambulation, provide transfer and mobility assistance. Some other tasks you may assist with include personal upkeep such as bathing, dressing, personal and oral hygiene, skincare, toileting and incontinence care. Home Health Aides must have a current CPR with skill proficiency certificate, a valid drivers license and car insurance, and must comply with the Agency’s neat and tidy dress code.
A rewarding and fulfilling career awaits when you join the staff at Vicar’s Landing Home Health. Make a difference in the lives of our clients, and feel fulfilled in your daily life knowing that you are providing an essential service.
