Seeking an LVN to join our capable and compassionate care team (Torrance/South Bay)

Imagine a place of peace, a home to spend final days surrounded by love and support. Imagine a place where family members and friends are freed from care duties and get to spend their energy supporting and connecting with their loved one, and each other. Caring House is that place.

Caring House is a residential home completely focused on end-of-life needs, with care for those who are dying and support for their families and loved ones. We’re improving the end of life experience for men, women and families as the first and only non-medical end of life home in the Los Angeles area. Typically, our residents are on hospice and have a remaining life expectancy of 45 days or less.

We are seeking a capable and compassionate LVN to join our care team and contribute to an environment of warmth, safety, security and support for our residents and their families during this special time. You will be collaborating with staff, volunteers and each residents’ visiting medical team.
