Calvert City Convalescent Center (CCCC) has been providing long-term care since 1972. Unlike most facilities, CCCC is a non-profit organization where love, caring, and compassion are more important than corporate financial goals. Many of its staff have been with the facility for decades and consider their co-workers and residents like family.
“We understand that CCCC is our residents’ home,” said Laurie Travis, Business Manager. “We are humbled and honored to be invited here each day, in order to provide them the best quality care.” Currently, the center has several open positions in its nursing, housekeeping, and dietary departments – across all shifts. It is planning a hiring event on Tuesday, January 28 from 2:00 PM – 4:30 PM. The event will take place at the convalescent center which is located at 1201 5th Avenue in Calvert City.
Tuesday’s event is a first for the facility. Jennifer Lindsey has been the director of CCCC for six months and encourages the community to participate in the open interviews. “This is an exciting time for us, as we’re hoping to add several new team members. I hope the community will see just how much we all love being here and that they will want to join our team. I want the community to see how we’re all working together for our residents and family members. We’re looking for team members that have compassion and truly love working with the elderly,” said Lindsey. “No matter what area we work, we all play an important role in how we can better the days and lives of our residents.”
Terrie Lawrence is the center’s Director of Nursing. She started working at CCCC over 16 years ago. “I came to lend a hand during the holidays,” she laughed. “I never left.” When asked to describe the types of applicants they are hoping will participate, Lawrence stated that they needed people with experience and those who are just starting out. “We need people who have experience and are looking for that strong connection to the individuals they are caring for,” said Lawrence. “Perhaps they’re working at another facility or a hospital? Perhaps they’ve been driving to Paducah or Murray and would prefer a job without a commute.”
“We also need people who are new to healthcare,” Lawrence continued. “We hope that there will be applicants who are looking to build a career with our facility and dedicate themselves to our residents, our community, and our organization. As long as they have heart, we’ll welcome them with open arms.”
