We’re more than a company. We’re a family.

You hear it everywhere – companies describing themselves a family. But families are all different, and so is the way they look at work and life. This is what makes us the best kind of family.

We recognize each person’s talents, skills and personality and bring that into their position. We encourage people to become the best they can be and hold them to high standards. That’s because we believe in them, and their success. These family ties, so to speak, are part of every decision we make as a company.

We don't just work together – we laugh, eat and learn together as a staff and with our residents! We believe that every day can be a good one, for both employees and residents. Dedicated to this philosophy for more than 30 years, we’ve learned that the secret to everything – working, celebrating and even getting through the tough stuff – is doing it with love.

By working to create the kind of community we would want for our own loved ones, where warmth, love and respect are abundant, we also create a unique, positive and caring workplace. Feeling valuable, special and loved isn’t just a goal for our residents. It’s how we want everyone to feel at Agemark.
