Full-Time Hospice Aide/CNA
The Mission of Serene Care Hospice is clear: To deliver the highest quality of physical, emotional, and spiritual care for our patients, their families, and friends; while treating them with dignity and respect during this life-limiting illness and bereavement.
Our Serene Team believes that the end of a person’s life is about living, not dying. Our Hospice Team consists of a comprehensive Nursing Staff, Social Workers, Spiritual Coordinators, Volunteers, and Bereavement Staff. We are dedicated to excellence as we provide the highest quality of care for our patients, always responding in a loving, caring, respectful manner during their time of need.
We do things a little different here – we work in pairs. You’ll be paired with another bath aide/CNA to make the process easier for you and our patients.
Who we need:
Serene Care needs compassionate, qualified Certified Nursing Assistants to join our rapidly growing team. Your presence and care will bring comfort and dignity to the person who faces the end of their life, and help them reach acceptance and peace of mind.
