Life in a long-term care facility revolves around medical care. Most residents are there because of medical conditions that are too complicated to be treated at home. But that doesn’t mean that living in a long-term care facility can’t be a stimulating experience.
Program services coordinator jobs exist to provide activities for residents living in a healthcare facility. These coordinators design and implement a variety of program services, which can include family programs, spiritual programs, community outreach programs, volunteer programs and more. Working closely with residents and their families, coordinators ensure program satisfaction. They are constantly evaluating and re-designing programs to better suit the needs of their residents.
In these managerial positions, coordinators oversee all operations, activities and personnel in the programs. This includes interviewing, hiring, supervising and disciplining staff, as well as budgeting for the programs.
To qualify for program services coordinator jobs, candidates usually need a BA or BS in therapeutic recreation or a related field. Depending on the facility’s specialty, they may need prior experience working with a specific patient demographic.
