Long term care administrators are in charge of maintaining facilities that specialize in taking care of senior patients who cannot take care of themselves.
Like most healthcare administrators, they are responsible for ensuring proper medical services are provided to each patient. However, because patients are usually in the facility for the remainder of their lives, long term care administrators also strive to ensure quality of life by meeting the emotional and psychological needs of patients. This can include anything from scheduling social activities to providing therapy for patients.
To be successful at long term care administrator jobs, you should be a strong leader who is highly organized and can handle stressful workloads. Effective communication skills and attention to detail are necessary to succeed in this role.
Although some facilities will accept a bachelor’s degree, in order to qualify for most long term care administrator jobs, you should have a master’s degree in long term care administration or a related field. You will also have to be licensed by the state in which you are working.
Facilities hiring for long term care administrator positions include nursing homes, assisted care retirement communities, and hospices. To find out what companies are hiring in your area, visit ADVANCE Healthcare Jobs today!
