Do you have an enthusiasm for helping others? Do you see aging not as a period of decline, but as a time for growth?
West Ridge is looking for like-minded individuals who share our philosophy to join our dedicated team of care professionals.
The Eden Alternative Philosophy
Life at West Ridge centers around the Eden Alternative Philosophy of care, which treats long-term care centers as living habitats for human beings, rather than institutions of frailty and waiting. We address residents as our Elders, and our atmosphere and culture emphasize respect for their dignity, privacy and independence.
Our staff works to make West Ridge a home where spontaneity and joy are a part of everyday life. Frequent outings, opportunities to socialize and a strong connection to nature help us to eliminate the three plagues that too often affect long-term care centers: loneliness, helplessness and boredom.
Who Is a Good Fit for West Ridge?
We’re currently looking for a nursing/health care assistant, general housekeeper and staff nurse to join our team. Candidates for any position should be sensitive to the physical, social and emotional needs of our Elders, and share our positive attitude on aging. Compassion, empathy and an interest and/or experience in geriatric care are must-have traits in a prospective team member.
A Great Place to Work & Grow
Working with our Elders can be a rewarding and fulfilling experience. Our staff develop deep relationships with our residents, who often feel more like family than clients. Our collective commitment to providing great care and creating a warm, positive environment don’t just benefit our Elders—they make West Ridge a better place to work and grow your skills.
