“I genuinely care and take joy in the opportunity to work with seniors. I’m not there for a paycheck. I get up in the morning and show up to work because I have people who depend on me and need me. Sometimes I’m the only person somebody has. I make a difference every day.”

Are You Right For the Job?

Together we are working to create a culture of caring where elders and care team members can grow and learn together. We need you on our team to help make this happen!

We believe the quality of relationships is a basic human need for all of us, including the elder generation. We want care team members who:

  • Want to be friends and have fun with the elders who live here.
  • To show them how to connect with their family on Facebook®.
  • To hold their hand.
  • To listen to their stories as they share their wisdom.

You may need them to guide and advise you or to learn lessons from their experience. We need one another! Your role is important.
