JobsNOW: Local assisted living ministry hopes to hire LPNs and nursing aides
NORTH JACKSON, Ohio (WKBN) – Antonine Village is a ministry of the Antonine Maronite Sisters of Youngstown.
The village has an assisted living facility, a memory care unit and an adult day care center. He needs LPN nurses, who medically supervise residents, take vital signs and pass medications.
“Her job is to really make sure the resident is medically looked after,” said Sister Dolly Azzi.
The nurse must have a license and one year of experience. They are the link between the resident and his family to provide them with the care they need.
“They need to receive compassionate care that we can’t really teach them. We can teach them the technique, but we can’t teach them how to be compassionate, ”Azzi said.
The village of Antonine also needs nursing aids, who also provide direct care to the 43 residents: bathing, dressing and mobility assistance.
“They do everything for the resident. They are the resident’s companion, so they are very, very important, ”Azzi said.
Theresa Precurato-Cozad has worked at Antonine Village for six years since being open and has a heart for the elderly.
“I just appreciate them. I like to talk to them about their heritage, their recipes, the things they love to do, ”Precurato-Cozad said.
On Tuesday she was helping Millie, who is quite an artist and enjoys sharing her recent projects. Precurato-Cozad has found a work house in the village and thinks others can do it too.
“They treat their employees like family, their residents like family. It’s a wonderful place to work, ”said Precurato-Cozad.
