Terrace Communities holds to the philosophy that "We can teach a caring person skills, but we cannot teach a skilled person to care." Thus, in our hiring practices, we consider more than the formal skill set that someone brings. We strive to acknowledge their true essence, from our initial contact through the process of their "becoming" part of Terrace Communities.
At each of our locations, we understand that it takes each and every person to make our communities successful. While the roles and responsibilities may differ, every person is vitally important within their position and no more or less important than another.
We constantly strive to create opportunity for individuals to become part of a comprehensive team, and to challenge him or her to go beyond the status quo. Our continuous quality focus enables employees to have a direct impact on the environment they work within.
Employees are routinely recognized for their hard work, dedication, and ability to think outside the box. Our Communities strive to create ample opportunities and foster an environment that promotes self-development on a personal and professional level. With the support of our training program and educational seminars on topics such as leadership, senior health, and Alzheimer's disease, individuals are constantly raising their own personal standard, which raises the collective bar within each community. Personal accomplishments are a success worth recognizing.
We are very proud of our staff, many of whom have been with us for years. They love what they do and it shows. They become part of our family and that of the residents as well.

At Wheelock Terrace, we embrace the concept of community. Each Terrace is located within the heart of a small and charming town where opportunity exists to become an integral part of the community at large by supporting area seniors, hosting cultural events, and creating opportunities for people to share their time and talents.
Volunteers are an important part of who we are. We encourage members of the local community and residents' families and friends to become involved. If you are interested in making a difference in the lives of others, please contact us. Opportunities exist to bar tend during our evening social hour, play music, give lectures or readings, foster inter-generational exchanges, do projects such as crafts or gardening, bring animals for pet therapy visits, share talents and passions, or simply visit with our residents.
