Kemper House is an assisted living facility designed specifically to care for persons living with memory impairment due to Alzheimer’s and/or dementia. Because we care for all stages of memory impairment, it is essential that our Nurses be able to customize care to the individual needs of the resident. This can include, but is not limited to, everything from engaging residents in social activities to ensuring comfort throughout end of life care. The Nurse is also expected to conduct quality of care inspections, administer medications, maintain medical records, accurately complete required nursing documentation in accordance with state regulations, and assist residents with activities of daily living as needed.

*Are passionate about acting as advocates for our residents and enforcing resident rights
*Effectively communicate resident needs and status updates with members of the Kemper team, resident family members, and ancillary staff as appropriate
*Are highly organized while coordinating resident care with a variety of outside service providers, such as doctor appointments, pharmacy orders, physical therapy, etc.
*Possess keen observation skills, noting and addressing issues such as unusual changes in a resident’s physical or mental behavior
*Are comfortable with addressing nursing team performance issues in a fair and professional manner, as well as making an extra effort to recognize and reward team members to foster motivation and engagement
