Working in Senior Living

Working in Senior Living

Posted on 25Jan

We asked some of our team members to share their experience working in Senior Living. Here is what they shared:

Rachael, Community Relation’s Director: “My job doesn’t feel like a job. I feel like I come to work every day and I get paid for doing what I love to do.”

Carlynn, Caregiver: “They depend on me, they need me…and, I feel like I need them too.”

Erika, Food Service Manager: “The thing is to give them the joy, the happiness of the moment, [make them] feel special.”

Misty, Med Aide/ Caregiver: “When I come to work, this is my home away from home. And, you get really attached to the people you take care of. And, what’s important to me is to make sure that they feel that their at home as well.”

Matt, Director of Environmental Services: “We had a resident whose family wasn’t able to make it for his birthday party. It was his 98th birthday party, and he wanted a steak. He wanted to go out for a steak. And we took him to the Outback Steakhouse.”

Erika:  “If they require things I run. If they don’t have it, I make it happen.”

Matt: “When I looked at him, I could see my grandfather in his eyes.”

Misty:  “You sit down with them and you just talk with them about anything. They might be talking about their family, their past, what their future plans are…”

Matt: “You don’t get experiences like that from any other job that I can think of.”

Rachael: “It is very emotional. It is, because you’re going on that journey with the family. And, I am very passionate about what I do.”

Carlynn: There are so many things in this world that I could do. But, this is what I was meant to do.”

Misty: “We are their little family in a way. It makes me feel good to be there for them for that.”


Culture
Mission and Culture

Posted on 10Jan

A company’s mission statement explains the purpose of the company. The values of a company then drive how a company commits to fulfilling its mission. A company’s mission statement and values should be at the core of each decision that is made.

Our mission is to create and sustain comfortable, caring environments for those who depend on us.

At Radiant Senior Living our mission and values not only apply to how we conduct business, but also to how we treat every person that comes in contact with our company. We believe that in order to provide a Culture of Caring for our residents and their family members we must also keep that goal top of mind in working as a team.

Every organization’s excellence depends on the people who work for it. We recognize that to reach our goal of excellence in providing services and living accommodations to our residents, we must have motivated, well-trained and enthusiastic employees. Excellence in care, food service, social activities and maintaining our communities comes about only through the cooperative work of all employees.

This website and blog are just two of the many ways that we aim to fulfill our mission by providing value to our team members, as well as those interested in the senior living industry.
