Administrative Assistant

Kaigo Assistant Living (Vernon, BC)

Creekside Landing is a unique campus of care that offers aging couples, seniors, and friends — whose individual care needs differ greatly — the ability to continue to live together in proximity. The campus provides a safe, supportive home and 24-hour nursing care for seniors who can no longer live independently, whether due to physical or cognitive issues.

We have expanded our Creekside Landing location in Vernon to include the newly constructed Osprey Court, opening in December 2023 and located just a hop, skip and jump (literally!) over Vernon Creek. This new, state of the art, modern facility will be residence to 96 seniors, and we are looking for a dedicated, professional Administrative Assistant to support the management team.

This role is responsible for the upkeep of resident records and accounts, providing a friendly and welcoming atmosphere at the reception desk, facilitating A/R and A/P processes, assisting with new hire onboarding and maintaining office supplies and equipment for the building.
