Activities Assistant ~ Senior Retirement Community
Make a difference by leading a team in creating a fun and valued experience for our treasured residents
At MorningStar Senior Living, we talk a lot about culture. In fact, we rather obsess about it. For without a transformative culture, we cannot begin to elevate and celebrate the lives of our resident-heroes, and be ourselves changed for the good in the process. So, we seek great hearts, other people like us, who care and want to do work that matters. We select people like us who believe that the most satisfying life is one that is outward-bound and rooted in servant-leadership.
Life Enrichment Assistants work closely with residents and team members to develop activities that keep residents mentally, physically and creatively engaged within a comprehensive activity program. You will have the opportunity to know each resident and find out what each person is passionate about, encouraging them to share their talents and join in the fun.
