Working At Kendal At Ithaca

Working at Kendal at Ithaca is an unusual experience. “I don’t just clean for people; I make a difference in their lives,” was how one employee described the experience of working here.

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

Kendal is a community founded on Quaker values, emphasizing respect and dignity for all persons. It offers a quality work experience with opportunities for professional development and an excellent wage and benefit package. It is a family-friendly work environment with on-site child care and a variety of employment arrangements.

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