Here at Westminster Canterbury Richmond, we believe deeply in our mission of improving the lives of those we serve every day. We’re committed to ensuring the best life possible for our residents and to cultivating leadership in senior services.
But this mission can’t gain traction without people. And not just any people – we rely on many, many dedicated and qualified staff. Sadly, it isn’t always easy to find them.
Both here in Richmond and nationwide, there is a workforce crisis in senior-focused organizations. With 10,000 people turning 65 each day and living longer lives, there are fewer available caregivers to serve growing numbers who need specialized care. Yet, senior services is still a largely unrecognized career option for workers of many age and ability ranges.
Working with seniors is a rewarding career with an excellent future. There are a wide variety of professions needed – Nursing, Cultural Arts, Information Technology, Communications, Dining, Philanthropy, Housekeeping, Pastoral Care, Engineering, and at Westminster Canterbury, even teachers for child development!
