DOROT is a hybrid work environment where team members work part-time onsite and part- time remotely. The Social Worker will report to the headquarters located on the Upper West Side of Manhattan and should expect to be in the office three to five days a week.
DOROT, which means “generations” in Hebrew, was founded in 1976. We provide a dynamic partnership of seniors, volunteers, and professionals dedicated to enhancing the lives of older adults to help them live independently as valued members of the community. Our wide array of programs – conducted on-site, in the home and in the community – are designed to combat loneliness and social isolation. Compassionate care and a commitment to excellence are hallmarks of our programs and staff.
DOROT’s Social Workers provide case assistance and support to a broad spectrum of active as well as isolated and homebound seniors. This includes assessing seniors for all of DOROT’s Programs. The Assessment Social Worker will assume the very important primary responsibility of conducting comprehensive, psychosocial in-home assessments of new clients and follow-up assessments with ongoing clients. Follow up assessments are imperative to confirm a client’s ongoing appropriateness for program attendance or need for additional services. Social Workers also participate in and support DOROT’s intergenerational volunteer programs.
