Terrace Communities holds to the philosophy that “We can teach a caring person skills, but we cannot teach a skilled person to care.” Thus, in our hiring practices, we consider more than the formal skill set that someone brings. We strive to acknowledge their true essence, from our initial contact through the process of their “becoming” part of Terrace Communities.
At each of our locations, we understand that it takes each and every person to make our communities successful. While the roles and responsibilities may differ, every person is vitally important within their position and no more or less important than another.
We constantly strive to create opportunity for individuals to become part of a comprehensive team, and to challenge him or her to go beyond the status quo. Our continuous quality focus enables employees to have a direct impact on the environment they work within.
Employees are routinely recognized for their hard work, dedication, and ability to think outside the box. Our Communities strive to create ample opportunities and foster an environment that promotes self-development on a personal and professional level. With the support of our training program and educational seminars on topics such as leadership, senior health, and Alzheimer’s disease, individuals are constantly raising their own personal standard, which raises the collective bar within each community. Personal accomplishments are a success worth recognizing.
We are very proud of our staff, many of whom have been with us for years. They love what they do and it shows. They become part of our family and that of the residents as well.
