Trinity Health Recreation Assistant - Life at Lourdes in Pennsauken, New Jersey

LIFE at Lourdes, a member of Trinity Health PACE, is seeking a PT Recreation Assistant for its location in Pennsauken, NJ. Programs of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) coordinate and provide all needed preventive, primary, acute and long term care services so that older individuals can continue living in the community. PACE is an innovative model that enables individuals who are 55 years old or older and certified by their state to need nursing home care to live as independently as possible. Through PACE, today’s fragmented health care financing and delivery system comes together to serve the unique needs of each individual in a way that makes sense to the frail elderly, their informal caregivers, health care providers and policy makers. Many PACE participants get most of their care from staff employed by the PACE organization in the PACE center. PACE centers meet State and Federal safety requirements and include adult day programs, medical clinics, activities, and occupational and physical therapy facilities. LIFE at Lourdes provides a competitive compensation and benefit package that complements this opportunity for personal growth and professional advancement. This position reports to the Day Center Manager.
