Careers

Oak Crest is an equal opportunity employer. We are dedicated to a policy of non-discrimination in employment on any basis including race, color, creed, age, sex, religion or national origin; or physical disability. Oak Crest completes criminal background checks on all individuals prior to hire and as a drug free work place all applicants will be tested for drugs prior to hire and are subject to periodic drug and alcohol testing.

With more than 220 full and part-time employees Oak Crest meets the needs of an organization providing 24-hour care and services. With flexible schedules, numerous job opportunities and exceptional benefits it is no wonder that Oak Crest holds the distinction of being the first not-for-profit organization in DeKalb to be recognized as the DeKalb Chamber of Commerce Business of the Year. Oak Crest is also proud to be accredited by the Commission for the Accreditation of Retirement Facilities/Continuing Care Accreditation Commission (CARF/CCAC). This designation is an endorsement of Oak Crest's fiscal responsibility, complete range of services, and superior quality of life.

Beyond this, the Center keeps abreast of changes within the field and strives to create a positive and safe environment for those who work and live here. Oak Crest accomplishes this by offering on-going education and training opportunities and participating in a voluntary program offered through OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration). The program entitled SHARP (Safety Health Awareness and Recognition Program) is a program that encourages communication and cooperation between businesses and the state. The purpose of the program is to improve the overall safety policies, procedures and practices in an industry often plagued with health related accidents and injuries. Oak Crest's distinction as a SHARP organization makes it one of twenty-four businesses in the state and the only continuing care retirement community to receive this recognition.
