“Senior living is definitely a calling,” shares Arle Hsu, Executive Director at Historic Roswell Place. A career in senior care isn’t just a job. It’s an opportunity to make a meaningful impact on the lives of others in a way that you won’t find in any other career. Whether your role is in housekeeping, dining services, or on the care team, the work you do every day helps to enrich seniors’ lives. Working in assisted living or memory care allows you to provide the much-needed help and support that residents need to live comfortably after retirement.
Working in memory care is a great way to help seniors with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia live fulfilling, meaningful, and productive lives. Pegasus’ evidence-based Connections program helps seniors Connect, Move, and Learn on their terms. With brain-building activities, sensory stimulation, social engagement, healthy meals, and more, Connections offers a robust approach to memory care.
