Assistant Director of Nursing & SDC

ADON/SDC – Assistant Director of Nursing/Staff Development Coordinator | Leonard Florence Center for Living

The Leonard Florence Center for Living, located in scenic and historic “Admirals Hill” in Chelsea, MA is part of Chelsea Jewish Lifecare–a non-profit, mission driven organization which has been providing innovative care to the elderly and disabled in Massachusetts for over 100 years! 

The Leonard Florence Center for Living sets the stage for a model of care that is far removed from traditional nursing homes. The prevailing goal of the Leonard Florence Center is to create a "real" home that provides exceptional care, but also supports those seeking to redefine the worth and meaning of late life and those living with debilitating diseases. It is not only the first urban Green House skilled nursing facility in the country, but it also has the remarkable distinction of showcasing three homes dedicated to caring for individuals living with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (known as ALS or Lou Gehrig's disease) and multiple sclerosis (M.S.). Most recently, we opened a state-of-the-art Ventilator Unit—the only one of the kind in the country!  

Position Summary

Under the leadership of the Director of Nursing and the Executive Director, the Assistant Director of Nursing/Staff Development Coordinator (ADON/SDC) is responsible for the planning, organization and development of the day-to-day functions of the department, while ensuring that the highest degree of quality and compassionate care is delivered at all times to the residents.
