Join us in championing better family eldercare.

Keen to champion better family eldercare?

At St Joseph’s Home, our work is not just about making sure our residents get their three meals and one shower a day. It’s also about meeting their psychological, social and spiritual needs, regardless of their health status and physical ability. This means focusing on them as whole persons and not just their body parts. It also means coming together as a team to care for and support our residents and one another.

In short, we’re like family.

Work is thus not routine or mundane but challenging, inspiring and at times humorous. Sure, it can get a little tough sometimes. But as with all families, we work through the difficult moments and emerge stronger. No matter what role you play, you’re never too small or unimportant to make a difference. Because it’s not just better care we’re championing, but better family care that comes from the heart.

For our employees, we strive to offer a compensation package that’s as competitive as organisations within and outside the eldercare sector. Because we focus on indicators such as care outcomes, resident satisfaction and safety, you can expect to derive greater meaning and purpose from your role no matter what it is.

 

AVAILABLE POSITIONS:

(1) Executive, Volunteer Management

Our volunteers come in as friends, with no KPIs and no regimen for residents to follow, except to spend quality time with each other. Once they’re in, they bring a little bit of the outside world into the home, thus keeping residents connected to the community and feeling purposeful.

Your role as an executive overseeing volunteer management is thus a crucial one. Apart from recruiting and screening potential new volunteers to ensure the right fit, you will support them in their journey to become good friends and great project facilitators in their respective projects with the residents. You will also explore ways to help volunteers grow personally and professionally (e.g. as volunteer leaders) so as to enhance their giving experience. Periodic project reviews and volunteer assessments will need to be carried out as assigned.

We’re going big on volunteers as part of the home’s push to re-write the story on ageing. Because future seniors are not going to be content with just bingo, table top games and the odd live performance by a group that visits only yearly. They’ll want on-trend pop-up cafes, digital interest groups and arts festivals all year round.

This is thus a really exciting time and opportunity for you to inspire impactful collaboration, kickstart new projects and ultimately, enable better care with and for our seniors in nursing homes.

Key Roles and Responsibilities:

Effectively conduct the following processes – outreach, screen, match, recruit, orientate, train, deploy, develop and assess all volunteers

Conduct information sessions, orientation and training workshops for volunteers and search for suitable partners to conduct these sessions or similar courses to enhance volunteers’ giving experience

Competencies:
