Working at Kindred has made me a student of life. I’ve had a background in teaching, and even in the “winter” of their lives, I am fascinated by how much I learn from our residents. Their lives are rich with wisdom and experience I could never learn in a classroom, and I am both humbled and blessed to have the opportunity to spend time with them.Mary R., Activities Assistant
I think the reason I enjoy working at this center so much is because from day one I felt like I am part of this really big family. In every center I've visited, I was welcomed just as if I had worked in that particular center for 20 years. The warmth and friendliness across all Kindred centers is something that I think is unique to Kindred Healthcare. The compassionate staff really is the defining characteristic between Kindred and any other company; while programs like Service Excellence and Angel Care add to our successes, the key ingredient is that we really employ team members who are all in the business to provide the very best care for our patients and residents.
