Stories from our co-workers.
Working at Country Meadows Retirement Communities is more than a job; it’s an opportunity to learn about history from those who actually lived through it. It’s a chance to build friendships with surrogate “grandparents.” It’s getting to know co-workers and being part of a team that feels like family.
To learn more about some of these special “perks” to being a Country Meadows co-worker at any of our retirement communities, this section shares stories from our co-workers—in their own words—which highlight members of our team, new friendships and special programs, to name a few. Feel free to stop by any of our senior living communities to check out fresh stories from around our service area.
