General Questions About The Arbor Company

Where is The Arbor Company located?

We have senior living communities in 11 different states, but our home office is in Atlanta.

I’m looking for memory care jobs near me. What type of services do you offer?

We have two types of programs for seniors facing the challenges of memory loss, both of which have openings for dementia care jobs. Our one-of-a-kind Bridges program offers meaningful socialization and cognitive work for seniors in the early stages of dementia. Our memory care communities are specifically designed for seniors living with Alzheimer’s disease or other types of dementia.

If you have a passion for working with seniors with memory challenges, we encourage you to search for resident care jobs. If you are looking for experienced dementia care specialist jobs, have at least two years of experience in resident care management, and have worked directly with seniors with dementia-related diseases, explore our Memory Care Director role.

Does The Arbor Company only hire for resident care positions?

Our communities have six different departments. Although all of our team members are passionate about working with seniors, four departments are not directly related to resident care or engagement. We hire for independent living, assisted living, memory care, and other retirement community jobs positions in Administration, Dining Services, Maintenance and Housekeeping, and Marketing and Sales.

What types of senior living communities do you have?

Depending on the location, we provide independent living, assisted living, and memory care services. Only some locations offer all three neighborhoods under one roof.

Are any of your positions appropriate for someone who hasn’t worked in senior living before?

Although there are minimum requirements for certain roles, we also have positions for those who haven’t worked in senior living previously or who need additional experience. If you have a passion for working with seniors, are committed to excellence, and want to be part of a high-functioning team, we encourage you to search for opportunities near you in one of our six departments - Administration, Dining Services, Maintenance and Housekeeping, Marketing and Sales, Resident Care, and Resident Engagement.
