The benefits of a career in senior living
Kensington Place offers enhanced memory care with a full spectrum of clinical support and true “aging in place.”
A career in senior living extends into all corners of service, including:
- Dining services
- Care partners, nursing, and medication technicians
- Life enrichment
- Environmental and housekeeping
- Sales, marketing, and outreach
If you’ve ever doubted your ability to thrive in a senior living community, understand that your unique skills are valuable and needed just as much as our excellent nurses and care partners.
Additionally, our care partners do not need to be certified. We hire based on attitude and a caring heart, and will provide training to those who want to learn.
A love for seniors is all we ask. Consider your special talents: Do you like to sing, draw, or take photos? Do you enjoy improv or answering phones? Would you enjoy greeting families or telling stories?
You would be surprised to know what you could offer to a senior living community.
Senior living is a growing, stable field that offers the ability to make a difference in the lives of our residents while bringing purpose and fulfillment into your own life.
In our community, we celebrate the little things that make life special. Working with our senior residents, you will experience the joy of the history and stories they carry.
You will experience the ways you enrich their lives and the lives of your team members. You will have the opportunity to build real relationships with those in the community as you go about your day.
