The Homestead at Rochester is looking for a Executive Director to oversee their Independent Living, Assistant Living, Memory Care and our new Skilled Care Facility.

Coming Soon: The Woodlands! The Homestead at Rochester's brand-new expansion project is underway. Reservations are now being accepted for premiere senior living within our newest apartment homes. In addition, we're adding state-of-the-art care center neighborhoods offering short-term rehabilitation, long-term care and specialized memory care.

The role of the Executive Director requires a combination of organizational leadership and operational talent as well as strategic expertise.  The Executive Director provides the management expertise for achieving the goals and objectives of the program in accordance with the mission of the organization.  The Executive Director reports to the Senior Vice President of Operations or Regional Director of Operations.  Reporting to the Executive Director are various department supervisors and staff.
