2015 Workum Resident Life Intern at Cedar Village

Cedar Village, the Jewish community’s retirement community located in Mason, Ohio,  offers a full continuum of care including a 162-bed Health Care Facility (including long term care and short term rehabilitation) and 105 Assisted Living and Independent Living Apartments.  Cedar Village offers its residents and tenants a broad range of social, religious, and cultural activities and programs designed to meet their needs and enhance their quality of life. Our mission, that aging will be an enriching and fulfilling experience for older adults and their families, is reflected in everything we do. 

 

The 2015 Workum Resident Life Intern will be a part of the Resident Life Department and report to Sally Korkin, Senior Director of Community Relations and Outreach.  He/She will be responsible for the following:

 

  • Implementing and planning a special project getting to know the residents and telling their life histories
  • Planning and leading small group activities in his/her area of interest
  • Assisting with special programs for the residents through the Berg Family Fund for Cultural, Educational, and Recreational Activities; the Harkavy Fund for programming: the Opening Minds Through Art Program, and accompanying residents on outings as appropriate

The Workum Summer Intern should be:

 

  • Comfortable and interested in developing relationships with the elderly
  • Enthusiastic, energetic, and caring
  • Flexible, dependable and motivated
  •  Organized and a self starter
  • At ease in a health care environment which includes many levels of care including dementia care

The Workum Summer Intern will benefit by:

  • Gaining insights from people very experienced in living since our residents’ average age is 87
  • Learning about health care career opportunities in a geriatric setting
  • Making a difference in our residents’ lives
  • Performing mitzvahs daily for our special residents
  • Being involved in meaningful intergenerational activities

Because some programming takes place in the evenings and on Sundays, part of the Workum Intern’s 30-hour week may be during these time periods.
