Parker is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization with a mission "to discover ways to make aging manageable, relatable, and enriching for all of society" and a vision to "make aging part of life." We believe that age is much more than just a number. We have discovered that for many of the people we serve, one's later years can be a vital time of discovering new things, enjoying new friendships, and participating in the society around us. Rather than having society tell older folks what they can't do, at Parker we help them to do more of what they want to do.
Years of experience has taught us that excellent, personalized service begins with taking the time to hire the best caregivers and invest in training, continuing education, and an environment of empowerment and respect. As a result, our employee retention rate is unparalleled in the field. It's for these reasons we consistently rank in the 90th percentile for resident, family, and employee satisfaction in annual peer surveys. Parker is a strong family. We support each other and our employees; we believe in recognizing talent and taking training seriously.
Parker provides employees with a great benefits package, including tuition reimbursement, group health insurance plans, a fully-funded pension, life insurance, contributions towards gym memberships, competitive pay, long-term disability, generous paid time off, benefits starting at 22 hours per week, and much more.
Culture is the established behaviors, values, products, reward systems, and rituals that define an organization. You can sense our culture when you visit one of our residences or programs, because it is often evident in our actions, enthusiasm, and environment.
Parker is a diverse community of over 1,000 passionate employees, caregivers, volunteers, thought leaders, researchers, educators and partners leading the way in aging services. Together we're creating a vibrant, inclusive aging services world that is easier to navigate, offers flexible solutions and designs ways for seniors, families, friends and communities to actively stay connected. From our award-winning staff to dynamic leaders and administrators, we are united in making aging more manageable, relatable and enriching for all.
For too many, aging is synonymous with decline, isolation and social irrelevance. Our Mission and Vision statements reclaims aging for the life stage that it is and restores it to its place on the life continuum. Aging is a natural, worthwhile life stage that we at Parker embrace, design for, invest and partake in, as a society.
