THE CENTER FOR MEDICARE & MEDICAID SERVICES (CMS) AND THE ALABAMA DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC HEALTH (ADPH) ISSUED A WAIVER ON MARCH 30, 2020, ALLOWING SKILLED NURSING FACILITIES TO EMPLOY NURSE AIDES TEMPORARILY WHO HAVE COMPLETED ALTERNATIVE TRAINING COURSES.
Extendicare is offering the required training course, at no charge, to individuals who qualify for hire and whose jobs were affected by or who were displaced from a job due to the COVID-19 disease crisis. We can offer temporary and long-term positions, depending on the employee and Extendicare’s need.
Our foundation is built on people of character.
We believe each member of our staff has an important role in the hands-on care for our patients and residents. Senior care isn’t all about diplomas or skills learned in school – it’s a special calling to those who will appreciate a senior’s individuality and build up the personal dignity which we all cherish.
And it all comes down to one word: Character.
Whether you’re a nurse, administrator, housekeeper, or a healthcare specialist, we look for people who want to make a difference in the lives of seniors. We look for those who will treat our patients and residents with the same amount of care and affection they would show their own grandparents.
How well you deal with people – not just seniors, but other staff members as well – is a key part of our hiring decisions.
Each day we care for both the physical and mental wellbeing of our seniors. We believe this approach requires a gentle touch, warm humor, and friendly, effective communication. We believe that the daily interaction which comes from assisting our patients with their everyday needs is very special. We believe every time one of our staff members enters a room they have the opportunity to lighten a patient’s mood and help them feel better.
If you have strong personal integrity, compassion for seniors and the desire to improve our residents’ and patients’ quality of life we invite you to learn more about finding a rewarding career path at Extendicare.
