More Than a Job: Join Us for Direct Care Training and Make a Difference with a Senior Care Career

In 2024, the demand for skilled nursing and caregiving roles is still at an all-time high.

To recruit compassionate individuals to fill our roles as Care Partners, we have launched our 5-day paid Direct Care Training program.

This program will quickly and effectively train compassionate individuals to become Care Partners in a senior care career, providing essential support and care to our residents.

Upon completion, you’ll begin a part-time or full-time role as a Care Partner.

Our Care Partners are more than caregivers, they are essential team members who ensure the well-being and daily care of our seniors, placing a special focus on helping those with dementia and Alzheimer’s.

Become a Kensington Care Partner and join our direct care training, from June 10th – 14th, and discover how you can start your healthcare journey at The Kensington Falls Church.

Our promise is to love and care for your family as we do our own.
