Senior living has certainly changed over the past decade. An industry that once provided very little hands-on care has blossomed into a wonderful option for older adults. It now provides varying levels of assistance with residents’ activities of daily living, while arranging many opportunities for socialization and community. I am fortunate to work for Arrow Senior Living leading the Vitalia Senior Residences at Strongsville team. I would like to share a little about my journey to becoming a senior living leader.
I started my career managing apartment buildings around the Cleveland area. After five years in that industry, I realized something was missing. As I thought it through, it came to me, I always had a passion for healthcare and needed to incorporate that missing piece. So, I researched which avenue would be best for me and found an opportunity working in assisted living as a sales and marketing director. Within a month I knew I had found where I was supposed to be, and I’ve been in senior living for 14 years now.
The residents are my true passion. I enjoy seeing them thrive in a community environment and getting the support they need. That’s what keeps me in senior living, and I stay with Arrow Senior Living because they allow me to have a voice.
In the 14 years I have been in senior living there has been many changes. I feel we will continue to see the industry change in the coming years as residents are living longer. We will continue to see senior living communities with more amenities to accommodate upcoming generations.
If someone is considering a career in senior living management, I would tell them it is the most rewarding career you will find.
Arrow Senior Living and I invite you to reach out and learn more about a career in senior living. Working in this industry can be incredibly rewarding and fulfilling. Whether you’re interested in caregiving, management, or another aspect of senior living, there are a wide variety of roles available that allow you to make a positive impact on the lives of older adults and their families.

May 21st is National Waitstaff Appreciation Day. The difference between an okay dining experience and one that is truly remarkable lies in the hands of your waiter or waitress. They are the unsung heroes in our restaurants, and without them, we wouldn’t be able to operate at the level you’ve come to expect. National Waitstaff Appreciation Day was created by Fred Sirieix. He wanted to celebrate all waitstaff, […]
