Meet Rensita: Caregiver and Medical Technician
Thank you for providing exemplary senior care in Mesa, AZ, Rensita!
What do medical technician and caregiver jobs entail?
Caregivers are the heart of senior living communities. They provide residents with assistance with activities of daily living, such as help with
Caregivers also provide emotional support by being available to listen to residents’ concerns and offering companionship during meals or activities.
In addition to assisting with daily tasks, caregivers can also help facilitate activities for residents within the community. This may include leading exercise classes, coordinating outings or special events, or providing transportation services. Caregivers ensure that all residents feel comfortable and secure in their new homes.
Medical technicians are responsible for providing basic medical care to seniors in the community. They are usually certified nursing assistants (CNAs) or licensed practical nurses (LPNs).
This position in a senior living community performs duties such as:
- Monitor residents’ vitals, such as blood pressure and heart rate
- Check blood sugar levels
- Administer medications
- Dispense oxygen
- Dispense emergency supplies such as wheelchairs or walkers when needed
Med techs must know about all the medications a resident takes, including interactions between drugs and potential side effects. They must also be able to recognize any changes in a resident’s health so that medical attention can be sought if necessary.
These heroes support residents who require additional medical care or monitoring due to health conditions such as diabetes or dementia. Med techs work closely with doctors, nurses, and other healthcare professionals to ensure that all residents receive any specialized care they need while residing in the community.

A Great Part-Time Job: Cooking the Best Meals for Seniors in Mesa, AZ
Have you ever wondered what it’s like to work in a senior living community? Many cooks don’t know what a rewarding experience it is to provide delicious meals for seniors here in Mesa, AZ.
One of the most exciting things about working as a cook in a senior living community is having access to fresh local produce. Chefs at Broadway Mesa Village use locally-grown fruits and vegetables from nearby farms. These ingredients create meals that are both healthy and delicious.
We ensure residents get all the nutrients they need while preparing enjoyable meals. Eating nutrient-rich foods helps older adults keep their energy levels up while maintaining good health.
Nutrient-dense foods like leafy greens, legumes, and lean proteins are vital since seniors may experience changes in appetite or digestion as they age. Fruits and vegetables should make up half of every meal, so we focus on making sure plenty of colorful options are available at each mealtime.
The hours as a cook in an assisted living community are less strenuous than those in traditional restaurants. This benefit allows our team to focus more on creating balanced meals that provide flavor and nutrition. We also get to enjoy meeting a community full of incredible seniors.
If you have ever thought about becoming a cook in a senior living community, then know it’s a gratifying experience. Help ensure older adults stay healthy through proper nutrition. Learn more about local produce and its value to a seasonal menu. What could be better than that?
