Day Center Geriatric Aide

Direct Care San Leandro, California


Description

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.
