Brio Cook / Homemaker

WesleyLife, a non-profit health and well-being organization dedicated to helping older adults remain independent wherever they call home, is excited to announce that Brio of Johnston, our newest Community for Healthy Living, will open this summer! In preparation, we?re kicking off our recruitment efforts with leadership opportunities.
In Italian, ?Brio? means vigor and vivacity ? a name that could also be used to describe our residents as well as our potential team members! As the Metro?s most comprehensive lease community for those 55 and older, Brio will be home to people with a lot of living to do. As a Brio team member, you?ll look forward to an environment of activity and enthusiasm, and you?ll help to create an ambience of health, well-being, purpose, and meaning.?
Brio is located southwest of the intersection of Northwest 86th Street and Northwest 70th Avenue in Johnston. Conveniently near I-35/80, shopping, churches, and other amenities, Brio?s setting also is designed to foster well-being and an opportunity to enjoy the outdoors. The community is close to walking and bike trails and will feature a meditation garden, two ponds, and a pet recreation area. Brio includes a state-of-the-art wellness center and will feature delicious, healthy dining options.?
In short, if you think you know senior living ? you?ll think again when you see Brio!
Brio will welcome team members late this summer, and we?re committed to having well-trained, highly efficient leaders in place to assist with the hiring process. If you?re interested in potentially becoming one of them, please visit wesleylife.org/careers, browse our openings, and apply quickly and easily. We?d love to welcome you to Brio!

You will maintain assigned areas in a manner which assures the highest degree of cleanliness and sanitation.
