The minute you walk into Kiwanis you can see the difference our housekeepers make in the lives of older adults every day. Clean, bright, open space, well-appointed environments and a sense of pride greets you at the door and throughout the building. Five different yet connected buildings, four floors for complex care and space to support community events all require a detail oriented eye and great customer service.
Each older adult living at Kiwanis Village can request emergency help by pressing their pendant. As the pendant responder you meet the needs of folks through a timely emergency response when called. This role is integral to the safety of our clients. It is a dual role shared with housekeeping and laundry.
Dementia is an odd disease. It initially appears as strange behaviours that are unfamiliar to the person and their family. Dementia shows up as different ways of remembering things and sequencing events and people and so on.
