Enlivant – Why Work For Us?


The Enlivant Environment

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.

A Place for Personalized Care

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.

Our Values Set Us Apart

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:

Excellence- Together, we strive to be the best in all we do.

A Place to Engage and Connect

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 (Less than a year)


    Support all the way up to CEO! It speaks volumes when top leadership takes time to interact with employees regularly. I spent 10 years with my previous company and NEVER laid eyes on high level management who stayed behind closed doors in a separate area of the corporate office


    No different than any other issues in the industry

    Advice to Management

    Keep being visible. It matters!
