Description

Looking for a satisfying career? Help frail, low-income seniors to live well by joining Center for Elders’ Independence (CEI) as a Geriatric Aide. 

Founded in 1992, Center for Elders’ Independence has earned the reputation as one of the best safety nets and community resources for seniors and healthcare in the East Bay. 

Here’s what our employees say about working at CEI:

“I love the work and the people. It’s a joy and an honor to work with the elderly and offer them quality care.”

“I like my job. I like to work with elderly people when they can live independently and make their own decisions. It’s very different from a nursing home.”

 “CEI is my family, even more than my real family. I like the training. It’s good how they make sure you know what you need to know and have what you need to do your job.”

If you are committed to providing high quality care to the elderly, CEI is the place for you! As a Geriatric Aide at CEI, you will provide physical assistance, basic personal care and psychosocial support to CEI's participants at the Day Centers. You will assist participants with activities of daily living (ADLs), while noting any changes in participants’ physical and emotional health and communicating this information to an appropriate staff person.

Qualifications:

  • 1 year experience working with the frail and elderly. 
  • Current CPR and First Aid certification.
  • Ability to travel between job sites, on an as needed basis.
  • Bi-Lingual a plus.

Center for Elders’ Independence is a PACE (Program of All- Inclusive Care for the Elderly) organization that uses an interdisciplinary team approach to care planning and care implementation for the purpose of providing high quality, affordable, integrated health care services to the elderly, including an Adult Day Health Center, and promoting autonomy, quality of life and the ability of individuals to live in their communities. Unlike other healthcare plans, CEI is not a "fee-for-service" plan. It is a a “capitation” healthcare plan. CEI is paid a set amount for each person enrolled in our program, whether or not that individual seeks care. We are a growing company that offers stability and continues to thrive.
