Purpose, Passion, and Possibility: How Careers in Senior Living Are More Than Just Jobs

Exceptional assisted living can’t exist without a loving, dedicated team.

Kensington Senior Living communities are built on a Promise to love and care for your family as we do our own, and we live this Promise each and every day. This not only extends to our residents, but also to our team members – everyone is included in the Kensington Family!

Our family recently gathered to celebrate careers in senior living with career coach Dr. James Rouse.

Read on to learn more about this event, and all the ways a career in senior living brings joy to both those serving the community and the residents they serve.

Fall in love with senior living: Finding purpose, passion & possibility in your career

Kensington Senior Living recently hosted an event centered on the purpose, passion, and possibilities that come with senior living careers.

Our career coach, Dr. James Rouse, led the conversation as multiple Kensington Senior Living team members shared their stories about how they fell in love with their careers.

Dr. James Rouse is a purpose-driven leader and successful entrepreneur who has worked with both influential leaders and budding professionals.

He has been with Kensington Senior Living for two years, helping community members and caregivers thrive in their roles by finding joy and purpose.

Kensington Senior Living communities frequently host educational and empowering events meant to inform, support, and inspire.

What makes a career in senior living more than just a job

A career in senior living is not simply a job, but a position to love and serve others through relationship-building and supporting health, happiness, and growth.

The Kensington Senior Living team is a true family, with a love for seniors and a passion to care for others.

We encourage professional and personal growth by recognizing the individual strengths of our team members and helping them achieve their goals.

Our communities expertly weave professional care with a calendar filled with fun events that build on the strengths and interests of our residents. For our team members, we host ongoing events, spotlight our team member of the month, and host specialized trainings that build team synergy and boost expertise!

A focus on family and fun

It is especially through our life enrichment programs that we get to build lasting relationships and a real family environment through shared activities.

We also place a strong emphasis on keeping our residents’ own families intact, through couples options, allowing pets, and encouraging family visits and dining.

Kensington Senior Living Core Values & Our Promise

Through the Kensington Senior Living Promise to love and care for your loved ones as we do our own, we have built communities that are capable of all levels of care and support.

This Promise extends not only to our residents and their families, but to our dedicated team members who choose to join this family.

We specifically look for individuals who share these values, and are able to embody Our Promise and Our Hallmarks in the community.

Our Hallmarks include fostering choice, encouraging independence, protecting dignity, engaging loved ones, and enriching each day.

Led by our core values, our hallmarks, and Our Promise, we can provide our residents with a full spectrum of clinical support and true “aging in place,” so matter how a senior’s care needs change over time, they have a home with us.

Team members are trained in the best ways to serve residents, and provided with all necessary tools to be their best selves.

Specialized memory care

Part of the Kensington Senior Living difference lies in our specialized care, such as our memory care and rehabilitation services.

We offer memory care as a safe, secure, comforting space for those with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia.

The memory care in our communities consists of two neighborhoods: Connections and Haven, which are designed specifically to accommodate the various degrees of memory loss.

Through our rehabilitation services, we are able to truly promote healing and independence that’s tailored to an individual’s care needs.
