Job Description

LOVE YOUR WORK. JOIN OUR TEAM.:

Yes, a housekeeper’s job at Highgate is about keeping house, but it’s also about helping to keep our residents feeling comfortable and cared for. In addition to cleaning suites, you’ll be expected to notice if there are any environmental hazards like a tangled emergency pull-cord, or spoiled food items in a resident’s refrigerator. Other responsibilities will include cleaning common areas inside and out, and re-stocking items. Every suite and living area must be show-ready every day. Are you ready?

A community, not a facility. As thought leaders in the industry, we take a positive, holistic approach to senior care and encourage independence, as people are happiest when they can make their own choices. We provide opportunities for physical activity, social engagement, intellectual stimulation, spiritual involvement, and fun. We treat our residents and our team members like family.
