POSITION DESCRIPTION

Springwell's Private Care Management Program is an innovative fee-based care management program that aims to expand our mission and our reach. The Private Care Manager (PCM) is a seasoned professional (Social Worker, Allied Health or other Human Services Professional) who will work to help find practical solutions to the challenges of aging, disability and caregiving by developing a comprehensive care plan that addresses the client's goals and preferences. The ideal candidate will have experience in home-and-community-based care and a good working knowledge of the health care and elder services landscape.

COMPANY PROFILE

At Springwell, we are serious about our mission. For more than 37 years, our staff has worked to help ensure that seniors and individuals with disabilities have the village they need and the support that is necessary for them to live at home with dignity and independence.

We are also serious about our employees. We are focused on creating a supportive, open environment that values the people who make a difference - each, and every member of our staff.

We believe in:

  • Accountability: At every level of the organization we are accountable: to the people we serve, to our funders, to our employees, to community professionals who rely on our support.
  • Continuous Quality Improvement: We honor the fact that each of us is human, and we embrace a desire to examine the value and quality of our work and ask how we can provide a higher quality of service.
  • Transparency: While we don't claim to be 100% transparent (there are certain things, like salaries and performance evaluations that are private) we continuously strive to be as open as possible.
  • Balance: Life is a give and take, as is work. We are always examining that balance. Today, we have yoga classes on-site twice a week. We are exploring offering a Weight Watchers meeting. And afternoon meditation is under consideration. If there is a holiday to celebrate we have a party. This year, we built a dedicated lactation room for new moms. We are committed to listening to our staff, and examining and re-balancing our work environment.
