Why Our Staff Feels The Ridge Is Home Away From Home

It’s said that if you choose a job you love, you’ll never work a day in your life. At The Ridge Senior Living, we believe if you work with and for people you love, your career won’t ever feel like a job.

Job Perks Include Connection and a Sense of Purpose

At each of our communities, we consistently craft a living experience that area seniors can’t get anywhere else. Being a part of our senior living team takes compassion, real know-how and old-fashioned hard work. It also means getting to know each senior you serve on a personal level — understanding their needs, desires, interests and preferences. But this is more than just a job. It’s a chance to build real relationships with interesting and engaging people who know you by name. 

Giving Your Best Every Day

Of course, we understand that being happy where you work is key to being able to give your all while being the best “you” that you can be. But don’t take our word for it, here are what some of our team members have to say about working at The Ridge Senior Living:

“I came to know a resident that speaks Tagalog — and as a Filipino, I do too. So I brought her a traditional meal from the Philippines, and you should have seen her smile. That kind of story is why I love working here.” 

— Karl Ramirez, Director of Marketing at The Ridge Foothill

Chef Chesney King

“We’re actually cooking real, good food and we’re developing culinary skills and, really, we’re giving these people what they deserve in the golden years in life. I’m just really proud to work here. I’m proud of the team I’m building, the culture we’re building, the food philosophy we’re putting in place. I’m really excited. We’re going to win some awards. I want people driving down the street saying, ‘Hey, we should go eat there.’” 

— Chesney King, Executive Chef at The Ridge Pinehurst
