About the Organization
For almost 25 years, Calgary Seniors' Resource Society has been providing much needed innovative services that prevent and reduce social isolation. We are a non-profit organization that helps seniors to remain independent, thriving, and valued members of their community.
What makes us so unique is that we effectively combine specialized and registered social workers with volunteers and volunteer programs that work hand-in-hand. Not only do we assist in a crisis, but we provide ongoing assistance to ensure seniors are supported appropriately long-term. Working with us is an opportunity to make a real difference in the lives of Calgary's older adults.
About the Opportunity
Currently, Calgary Seniors' Resource Society is seeking Outreach Workers to join their team in Calgary, Alberta.
Reporting to the Outreach Team Lead, the Outreach Workers will provide outreach services to older adults living primarily in the North East and upper South East Calgary communities. The Outreach Workers will be working closely with older adults and their families to provide culturally sensitive practice to address the varying and diverse needs of the community.

An active driver's license and access to a reliable vehicle is also required.
Our ideal candidate will have some experience in case management combined with a passion for working with older adults. You will also possess excellent communication skills, the capability of comfortably working both as part of a team and with minimal supervision, and a proven track record of going beyond the call of duty in your passion for working with older adults.
Individuals with strong critical thinking and decision making skills will excel in this role, as will individuals with strong cultural sensitivity and an awareness of the broad diversity of the community.
