Staff Development & Quality Improvement Coordinator

Are you an experienced Coordinator with a passion for serving Seniors? Do you pride yourself on quality and continuous improvement as well as developing others?

Making a difference in the world doesn’t always mean changing it from the ground up.

Sometimes making a big difference is about improving all the little things that make life special: making someone feel better, giving them something to look forward to, or connecting them to places and people that matter most.

Succeeding in this role requires strong dedication towards relationship and team building. Our quality program is only as good as the relationship between our staff and our residents; you’ll ensure that our staff has everything that they need, and that residents receive everything they’ve come to expect from a quality and safety perspective.

You take pride in your work, and have the independence and drive to take the great work we do, and make it better.
