Providence Life Services recently announced a three percent starting wage increase for healthcare staff, including Nurses, Resident Aides, CNAs; as well as other support staff, including Housekeeping, Laundry, and Dining Services staff.
Providence considers it a priority to attract and maintain the most qualified and dedicated staff to serve older adults in our communities. The wage increase is another way Providence Life Services shows their commitment to their employees, as well as to the people they serve.
Keeping quality caregivers and top staff is a challenge across the senior living industry. However, staff retention at Providence Life Services communities is well above the industry standard. We also have employees who hold office in top organizations that are committed to staying on top of industry trends and best practices. Our skilled nursing buildings have consistently been awarded 5-star ratings from Medicare.gov and have been ranked among the best nursing homes by U.S. News & World Report.
This wage increase, added to our competitive benefits package, will likely add to the number of people who choose to be employed by a Providence Life Services company. Providence Life Services offers Independent Living in apartments and townhomes, as well as Assisted Living, Memory Support, short-term post-acute Rehab services, and long-term Skilled Nursing Care in our senior communities in Illinois, Indiana, and Michigan. We also offer home-based services, including Private Duty, Home Health, and Hospice through Providence At Home, and Care Navigation through Providence Solutions. If you are wondering if Providence Life Services is the company you want to work for, ask our employees. Many have stayed at Providence for decades, and we’re proud of our staff retention.
