Why the Best CNA Jobs Are at Assisted Living Communities

If you are looking for CNA jobs or RN careers, you have a wealth of opportunities at your fingertips. In fact, the job outlook for health care careers is expected to grow around 15 percent up to 2029, adding 2.4 million jobs nationwide, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.

With all these choices, why should you have a CNA job or RN career at an assisted living community?

What are the specific reasons?

We’re glad you asked.

We’ll show you why assisted living facilities are the best for CNA and RN jobs as well as highlight some of the most rewarding aspects of working with this population.

6 Reasons Why Assisted Living Facilities Are the Best for CNA Jobs and RN Careers

1. Outstanding Workforce Culture

Working at an assisted living facility means you’re a seamless part of the fabric of a dedicated team. You’re also an essential part of someone’s everyday life, and this is a responsibility we take very seriously.

This is reflected not only in the care and support we give residents at West Bladen, but in the care and support we give to each of our coworkers.

2. Great Benefits

We value our employees at West Bladen, which is why we have a robust benefits package offering:

  • Medical, dental and vision insurance
  • 401(k)
  • Matching 401(k)

3. Every Day is Different

Sure, we have a general schedule for our residents, who have regular mealtimes and planned activities, but you’ll find that every day on the job presents a lot of variety. You may be called to help a resident with specific needs or assist a team member in resolving a challenge.

4. Connection to Residents

When you work at a hospital, or even at a medical practice, you typically treat or help patients and then they are discharged. This makes it difficult to form long-term connections.

Working at an assisted living community like West Bladen gives you a chance to get to know our residents and, as a result, form a special type of family. We treat our residents with the same care and respect that we would if they were our own parents or grandparents.

It’s wonderful to be a part of the West Bladen family!

5. Meaningful Work

At assisted living facilities, residents have some level of independence. At West Bladen, we do all we can to foster that independence. We want our residents to live “on their own” as much as safely possible.

But sometimes, they need help.

For these residents, CNAs are like a lifeline, anchoring them to the activities that they enjoy. The dedicated work of CNAs and RNs also allows our residents a meaningful and fulfilling time during their senior years.

6. Job Stability

As we mentioned earlier, the healthcare field is scheduled to expand and add jobs throughout the next decade. Due to our outstanding benefits packages and positive work environment, we have employees that have worked at West Bladen for 10 years or longer.
