Health Services – Catered Living/Vista (Assisted Living and Memory Support) /
Do you love the healthcare industry? Are you passionate about serving others? Come and join a dynamic team of nursing professionals servicing a great community of over 400 senior residents. We have career opportunities in our Catered Living (Assisted Living), Health Center, and Vista (Memory Care) Departments. Westminster-Canterbury of the Blue Ridge (WCBR) operates 24/7 caring for residents. Our residential community provides the opportunity to spend time with residents and serve as part of a committed health-care team with the ultimate goal of providing a supportive, safe and home-like environment for residents.

Certified Nursing Assistants (C.N.A.) provide a variety of selected routine nursing care tasks under the direct supervision of the nurses responsible for providing direct resident care.  Responsibilities include assisting in the examination, treatment, and care of residents; provide privacy and assistance as appropriate in maintaining the resident’s dignity.  In many instances, C.N.A.s may spend more time with residents than anyone else on the health care team and therefore should provide a supportive, safe, home-like environment.  For this reason, they can easily form lasting connections with residents and families and require individuals who are compassionate, empathetic and truly interested in helping others.
