Embracing Core Values
For us, core values aren’t just words; they are the guiding principles shaping our everyday operations. Our employees embody these values by:
🌟 Practicing well-being: Holistically caring for ourselves to deliver exceptional care and service.
🌈 Striking a balance: Promoting a “Three-Thirds Lifestyle” – family first, community giving second, and contributing meaningfully at work.
🎉 Having permission to play: Empowering employees to lead autonomously, create positive work environments, and pursue growth opportunities.
🌐 Leaving their mark: Striving to make a positive impact on the community, residents, and colleagues through philanthropy, hospitality, and care.
💡 Breaking the mold: Welcoming creative thinking that leads to innovative solutions and services.
This ensures that our happy, balanced employees bring their best selves to work, leaving a lasting impression and creating an unparalleled senior living experience for our residents.
Nurturing Leadership and Growth through Professional Development
How do we keep our employees happy? Simple – we invest in them. Our resources go into those who go above and beyond for our residents. We actively seek the next generation of leaders in senior living.
Our professional development programs, including Guiding, Recognizing, and Inspiring Talent (GRIT), are designed for standout employees. GRIT, a rigorous program, encourages personal and professional skill development across various aspects of community life. In senior living, where careers are diverse, ranging from hospitality management to healthcare, GRIT empowers employees to focus on areas that resonate with their interests. Divided into freshman, sophomore, junior, and senior courses, GRIT propels employees towards leadership and success in senior living communities.
Meet the Newest GRIT Graduate!
Cameron Pellegrino from The Landing of North Haven is the most recent sophomore GRIT graduate!
“I started with Leisure Care as a concierge, then transitioned to an activities assistant, and then took on the lead concierge job when it opened up. I have worked here since January of 2020. My favorite part abut my job is seeing and talking with all the residents. We have a great, tight-knit community that feels like a second family to me. Seeing the residents every day truly makes me happiest. The GRIT program has given me more confidence in my job and the tools to better communicate with people. It has also given me the motivation to continue pursuing a career in senior living with Leisure Care. It shows me that hard work pays off and I have something to work towards! – Cameron Pellegrino
