Mission: To enrich life through meaningful relationships and vibrant communities
SeniorAdvisor has selected 72 Enlivant communities as a “2018 Best of Senior Living Award Winner!" We continue our path to reach our mission of becoming the nation's Most Trusted Senior Living Provider.
Take a peek inside our Chicago Support Center in this article from Senior Housing News. See how our space creates a vibrant culture and supports our mission, vision, and values.
Since 1981, when we opened our first community, we’ve delivered a pioneering approach to assisted living designed to give residents a supportive, stimulating environment where they will thrive in mind, body, and spirit.
In every one of our assisted living communities, our compassionate staff help our residents maintain their wellbeing, form meaningful connections, and engage with the things they care about. We work to meet each resident’s unique needs, with quality care and an environment that offers a sense of belonging for our residents, as though they are a member of a family.
We respect the culture and personality that forms in each one of our communities. Because our communities are more intimate than many, with an average of 40 to 60 apartments per location, we are able to tailor our programs to the interests and abilities of our residents. We help our residents do the things they’ve always loved, or find new interests, make friends, and rekindle their own spark.
Every Enlivant resident is unique. The men and women who move to our communities arrive with their own needs, stories, and dreams. That’s why we tailor our services to the specific needs of each resident – from assistance with daily activities to dining, activities and more. Our approach to compassionate, individualized care is focused on enhancing the health and wellness of the residents we serve every day.
Working at Enlivant means being part of an extended family of residents and staff, who are all enjoying the opportunity to thrive. We work together to provide quality care and build a true sense of community, and share a commitment to making a difference in the lives of seniors.
We seek hardworking, compassionate and dedicated professionals, who are inspired to make a difference to join our team.
From our Concierges to Care Partners, our team helps our residents with many different daily needs - whether it's a ride to the store, a medication reminder, or encouragement to join in new activities.
Positions include Medication Assistant, Maintenance Technician, Chef and Dining Services, Housekeeper, Driver, Care Partner, and Concierge.
Community Leaders are available in one of our more than 230 communities located across 27 different states. Members of our residence teams supervise and coordinate services and care for a single assisted living community.
Positions include Executive Director (Operations), Care Services Manager (Clinical/Nursing), and Community Relations Manager (Sales and Marketing).
Regional directors and specialists provide leadership to our residences and communities across multiple states. They are responsible for overseeing the operations, growth and development of communities in their assigned region.
Positions include Regional Director of Operations, Regional Director of Care Services, Regional Director of Sales and Marketing, Area Executive Director, Care Services Specialist, and Divisional Specialist.
Corporate positions oversee and support the residential and regional teams. They also develop the overall strategies for business development and company growth. A variety of corporate positions exist at Enlivant focused in our Chicago Support Center.
Positions include roles in Marketing, Business Development, Human Resources, IT, Finance and Accounting, and Facilities.
The Enlivant core values are at the heart of everything we do. They guide our actions and our interactions with our residents and one another. In every Enlivant location, you’ll find a group of people who believe in:
Compassion- Our commitment to caring sets us apart.
Humility- Our residents and employees come first.
Integrity- We always do the right thing.
Excellence- Together, we strive to be the best in all we do.
Fun- We love what we do - we enrich the lives of seniors.
When older adults need help in their daily routine, it can have a large impact on how they care for themselves and engage with the world. We believe that, when given access to a vibrant environment, every senior can thrive in mind, body and spirit. An Enlivant community offers residents as much assistance as they need, while providing them with ample opportunity to make friends, try a new hobby or rekindle an old passion.
I have been working at Enlivant full-time (More than 3 years)
Mission, Vision and Values still remain front and center in our daily operations even with our continued growth as a Company. The company continues to reward strong performance and support the teams in the field, which needs to be a focus that remains consistent for the long term success of any organization.
Ensure that the Support Center remains a support to the Community Leadership Teams. Happy to see the company investing in more effective daily processes to make the lives simpler of the leadership teams.
Advice to Management
Continue to push the Support Center members out to the field and into the Communities. Always great to remind everyone in Senior Living what we actually do on a daily basis. It’s People serving People!
The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Enlivant.
I had phone interview with a recruiter. I then met with regional directors then vp and then they flew me to chicago and interviewed with executive leadership. Read the mission and values they all live and believe them.
The recruiter negotiated once I let them know my expectations. I was offered more than my min requirements.
