Join KYC’s Older Adult Team
KYC’s staff are passionate about empowering community members to live healthy and fulfilling lives. Our Older Adults Department provides older adults and community members with disabilities with critical resources and services to help them navigate the many unique challenges they face. We are currently hiring for several roles that supports this goal. The Adult Protective Services (APS) Team is hiring for a new Case Worker, Supervisor, and Manager. Similarly, we are recruiting for a Comprehensive Care Coordinator to work on the care management team. Older Adult staff strive to provide the highest level of care to our clients each day.
About These Roles
The Adult Protective Services Case Worker investigates claims of abuse and exploitation against older adults or people with disabilities. The Supervisor independently investigates claims and provides consultation to Case Workers. The Manager is responsible for the operations of the APS program, oversees the APS team, and is the primary liaison between the APS team and state and local agencies. This team works together to advocate for the safety and well-being of older adults and people with disabilities in our communities.
The Care Coordinator enables community members to live safely and independently by providing ongoing case management. The Care Coordinator assesses older adult clients, identifies their immediate and future needs, and develops a plan to support their independence. The Coordinator provides older adults and their families or caregivers with wrap-around services or referrals to ensure their needs are met. This role is ideal for patient, compassionate people who want to help older adults live as safely and independently in our communities as possible.
Community members often reach out to Kenneth Young Center for support at the time of a significant life event, such as a serious medical procedure. In other cases, a family member may reach out when they become concerned about a loved one’s safety as they age in place.
