Meet A Senior Care Worker in Reno, NV
Hi Jessica! Why did you choose to work for Pegasus Senior Living?
I’ve worked under other senior living management teams, but Pegasus Senior Living purchased our community in 2018. I have stayed with Pegasus and worked with my same team off and on for the past 13 years.
It has been so rewarding to work with people that feel like family and that I can call family. I love working in the senior care industry, and Pegasus Senior Living has made this transition very easy and comfortable.
Why is the work you do important?
Because it makes others feel important, and we fulfill their needs and desires. Health care and senior living are so important to me because helping others is a fulfilling life journey.
What does senior living mean to you?
Senior living means taking care of seniors to the best of our ability and being a resource for seniors and their families. Taking care of seniors is a life-changing experience and a blessing. I enjoy making a difference in people’s lives and helping all with integrity and compassion.

The Seasons of Reno provides care, hospitality, and amenities to residents. Some of the services we offer include:

Our culinary team prepares local produce to create seasonal dining options. Dining services partners ensure every resident receives proper nutrition along with a great meal.

Activities: From staying physically active to social events, our team members enjoy having fun along with the residents. With the help of an extensive calendar, the Activities Director makes sure there is never a dull moment at The Seasons of Reno.
Imagine orchestrating and leading fun activities like this as a part of your career:
Assisted Living: Seniors can live independently thanks to The Seasons of Reno’s care partners. By providing activities of daily living assistance (ADLs), our residents can go about their day with confidence.
ADLs and other care services include:
- Hygienic care
- Medication management
- Dining assistance
- Ongoing monitor of health
- Personal check-ins
- Physical, occupational, and speech therapy
Memory Care: Nearly 50,000 seniors in Nevada live with Alzheimer’s. The Seasons of Reno offers Alzheimer’s and dementia care with the Connections Program to relieve families from acting as caretakers.
The Connections Program uses data-based programming and specially trained team members to honor residents’ lives with brain-enhancing activities and mind-healthy meals.
