Job Description for Disability Care Worker

Caring and responsible individuals are needed to work with people with special needs/disabilities (physical, mental, and/or developmental). As a disability care worker in our facility, your duties would include: assisting residents with transportation to and from medical appointments; administering prescription medication(s); ensuring basic hygiene practices (i.e. baths, showers, brushing teeth, cleaning/grooming habits, getting residents dressed); engaging residents in recreational and skill-building activities (grocery shopping, field trips, clothing shopping, and exercise sessions); and house-cleaning and maintenance (cooking, vacuuming, dusting, mopping, bed-making, laundry, emptying bed pans).

In addition to on-site duties, disability care worker(s) will be responsible for conducting occasional home visits to outpatient clients, as well as job-training workshops. As such, ideal candidates must be 18 years of age or older and posses a valid driver’s license. Reliable transportation is a must. A high school diploma is required, but preference will be given to those with an Associate’s degree or higher in a healthcare-related field. All applicants are required to pass a thorough background check. This position is ideal for a motivated person with excellent people skills and the ability to work efficiently in sometimes-challenging circumstances.

Currently, there are several shifts available: First shift: 8am-4:30pm; Second shift: 4:30pm-12am; Third shift: 12am-8am. We have a diverse community of residents, so a bilingual staff is also important. If candidates are proficient in another languages (Creole, Hebrew, Mandarin, Russian, Spanish, and/or Tagalog), they should declare so in their cover letters. Interested parties will submit a cover letter and resume attached to the online application.
