Occupational Therapist- Leonard Florence Center for Living

Occupational Therapist

The Leonard Florence Center for Living sets the stage for a model of care far removed from traditional nursing homes. 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.). Residents who are completely immobilized are able to control the lights, turn on the TV, open doors and raise window shades just by using their eyes. In addition, there are three homes dedicated to short-term rehabilitation and four homes dedicated to long-term care for seniors. Named after the late Chelsea-born philanthropist Leonard Florence, The prevailing goal of the Leonard Florence Center was 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.

We are seeking an individual that takes pride in delivering excellence in serving others, especially our elderly population.
