You Belong Here, Too: Reimagine Your Career in Senior Living

Employee Skydiving

Alissa Sauer

Today’s senior living communities are vibrant and active places where older adults repurpose and reimagine retirement while investing in their futures – and they are places where employees can do the same. In this blog series, we will explore how senior living communities are coming together to provide an abundance of opportunities for older adults and employees alike.

Taking Flight at Russellville Park

At Russellville Park senior living in Portland, Oregon, the sky is the limit – literally. Residents at Russellville Park are always up for adventure and recently included Guest Services Manager Samantha Gast on their skydiving trip.

Two Russellville Park residents and Samantha jumped from 14,500 feet and were cheered on by 25 fellow residents who came to show their support. Residents from the community filled two buses to watch their friends jump.

Long gone are the days of stereotypical senior living. Active retirement is here to stay. In Leisure Care communities, we live by our core values as evidenced by our robust daily activities schedule and signature programming.

“Working with seniors is not at all what I expected when I began working at Russellville Park. Having an experience skydiving with residents in their 80s and their grandchildren was spectacular beyond belief, even more so than if I had gone with my own friends. Whether I am planning an extraordinary bucket list experience, organizing an event in our community, or simply sitting and having coffee with a resident, the meaning that I get from my job each and every day is extremely fulfilling.” – Samantha Gast, Guest Services Manager, Russellville Park

Our employees practice well-being, are given permission to play, strike a balance between work and play, break the mold, and leave their mark every day. Leisure Care communities aren’t just places to clock in and clock out. They are active and thriving communities that people are proud to call home and work.


Every day, Leisure Care communities are breaking stereotypes to give older adults an unparalleled living experience. Here, it’s not about what you can’t do. It’s about everything that you can do. It’s about taking delight in the details, finding adventure in the every day, and showing the world that joy isn’t just for the young; it’s for the young at heart.
