Locals looking for part-time employment on “the Hill,” may want to investigate another job title, “care assistant.”

Under a pilot program at Aspen Ridge Assisted Living, potential employees will have an opportunity to work part-time, said Los Alamos Retirement Community Liaison Cynthia Goldblatt.

The part-time positions provide flexibility, which is what at-home parents, retirees, and college students may be looking for, Goldblatt said.

Applicants need to pass a background check, and would receive training to work beside people who are elderly.

They assist at mealtimes, during activities and during other aspects of the person’s day. Residents participate in a variety of activities, including exercise, movie nights and supervised visits by therapeutic animals.

The part-time aspect of the pilot project would allow people with other responsibilities to add to their income and develop new skills, as well as helping people in their community. In some cases, the potential employees have elderly relatives elsewhere; working at Aspen Ridge would provide a way to give back to their community.

Goldblatt said anyone interested in the part-time positions should contact her at (505) 695-8981.
