Overview

We are an assisted living location that specializes in Memory Care and has an Alzheimer's Designation. This position requires some direct interaction with the residents and requires a kind and gentle individual who derives personal satisfaction from caring for others. They must also possess patience and understanding to interact with residents with dementia. Because they interact directly with the residents, it is also important that they display a positive attitude and have an outgoing personality, and of course must maintain a professional appearance.

This location for memory care has two buildings with a total capacity of 48 residents. The kitchen is residential in lay-out, with commercial equipment and prepares three meals and three snacks a day.

If you are a culinary trained individual it is a plus but not required for this position. The ideal candidate for this position may also come from a background of a school cafeteria, corporate lunchroom, or a restaurant that serves a buffet style meal. The menu here is from scratch but very "comfort food" in style. These are the entrees that we all ate growing up like chicken fried steak, meatloaf, or fried catfish.
