Senior Living Hiring, Training and Development

Ensuring everything works together.

Human Resources for senior living at Life Care Services offers specific expertise in employee relations, compensation, hiring, training, and development. For basic human resources functions, LCS software (integrating payroll and operating expense reporting) is an accurate and efficient way to collect information and provide comparative salary range data and reporting.

We can also assist in hiring key department heads — we have a national network for identifying top candidates — and other aspects of senior living employment. If the need arises, we even have the resources to effectively place interim senior management community staff. Read about how to plan ahead for labor shortages in the field of senior living.

The company ensures employees have access to training and development opportunities needed to serve residents now and in the future. To support and enhance the competencies of leadership at the communities managed by Life Care Services, we created a human resources training program called LCS University® (LCSU). It’s designed to provide training specific to senior housing and caring for seniors. Last year alone the company:

  • Held 27,615 hours of live, webinar training
  • Administered to 4,000 individuals during these sessions
  • Offered over 300 CEU credit hours
  • Conducted best practice operational seminars
  • Sponsored a wide variety of conferences for community employees across the country

We can help with other aspects of senior living human resources too — such as leadership development, compensation, and benefits management and risk management. For not-for-profit sponsors, we support boards with opportunities that enhance governance, fundraising and networking.
