New Year, New You: Why Start a Career in Senior Living

Posted on January 1, 2022

Welcome to another new year! When the calendar turns from December to January, many of us use it as an opportunity to start fresh. Whether eating healthier, exercising more, stopping a bad habit, or even beginning a new career, the new year marks a clean slate.

If you have been reflecting and wanting to do something more meaningful with your career, transitioning into the senior housing industry might be the next step for you. The world of senior living offers endless opportunities for you to pursue, no matter what your field of expertise is in currently.

At The Pavilion Senior Living, we see how much of an impact our team members have on our residents’ lives each and every day. Our senior living communities throughout Tennessee and West Virginia are always looking for passionate and caring individuals to join our team. We want to help you grow in a career that gives you purpose. That is why we are sharing a few of the many benefits of working in the senior living industry.

Why Work in the Senior Housing Industry?

Many Fields, One Industry

One of the great things about the senior living industry is that it does not matter your skillset or what field of work you are currently in. There are so many different areas and parts to the world of senior living.

If you are a cosmetologist, you could work in a salon that a community has on campus. If you are a chef, you could work in the kitchen to prepare nutritious meals for the residents. If you are a Certified Nursing Assistant, you could be a part of the team that provides compassionate care and support to residents in the community. Whatever your expertise is, there is a place for you in senior housing. 

Endless Growth Opportunities

No matter where you are in your career, whether you just got out of school or you have years of work experience, the senior living industry presents unlimited growth opportunities. Even if you have never worked in senior living before, the possibilities are endless.

With so many options in the senior living industry, even if you are not sure what you want to do in your career long term, you have the opportunity to try out different areas without having to switch companies or industries. For example, if you get an entry-level position as a caregiver, you could end up planning all the activities in the community. On the other hand, you could start as a member of the kitchen staff and transition into a more hands-on caregiving role. Whatever your career goals are, the senior living industry can help you accomplish them.

A Career with Purpose

We all want to have a purpose in our lives and do work that means something. When you work in the senior living industry, you can find that purpose. A career in senior living means forming meaningful relationships and making a difference in the lives of older adults and their families. 

The Pavilion Senior Living’s communities in Tennessee and West Virginia strive to enhance the quality of life of those we serve, helping them create and lead their desired lifestyles. You could be a part of making this happen.
