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:

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.

A Place to Engage and Connect

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.

    Wonderful corporate and regional support. Working for 3 former large chains enlivant doesn't just talk the talk, they walk the walk. Very good benefit package and compassion is the name of their game.


    As typical with a growing company they are aware of their shortcomings which are few. Nothing out of the ordinary with a growing company that focuses on resident and staff values.

    Advice to Management

    Stay your course and you will exceed you're already high expectations.
