At the root of our philosophy is the idea that if Kendal at Ithaca is a good place to work, then it will be a good place to live. Residents are drawn to Kendal in part by the friendly, helpful attitudes of the staff. In turn, they are genuinely interested in the well-being of staff members and support our efforts to make the experience of working at Kendal a rewarding one.

If you enjoy working with older people, and like the idea of an organization that holds its employees in high esteem and to high standards, then Kendal might be a good match for you.
