Our health care specialists love their jobs. And it shows: the turnover rate of our staff is 80 percent lower than the national average.*
But it’s more than just tenure alone. We take a holistic approach to health care. Our nurses ensure the medical needs of participants are met, while our recreational therapist creates programs to boost memory, socialization and movement.
We ensure our staff is constantly optimizing their skills with annual training.
