Julie Masiello is the SVP of Technology and Marketing. She has observed that, contrary to popular belief, seniors demand access to technology that simplifies their lifestyle and care: “The old way of thinking was that senior living residents wouldn’t be interested in using technology until the baby boomer population ages and begins to move into our communities. But that couldn’t be further from the truth,” says Masiello in an interview with Argentum.

Silverado Senior Living specializes in providing quality of life for those living with memory-impairing diseases as well as palliative and hospice care services. With headquarters in Irvine, Calif, Silverado has more than 2,100 employees at 31 sites.

In response to the Fortune survey, one employee said, “No matter the situation, I know I can count on my administration to always make an ethical choice instead of a business choice. This is what makes it such a great place to work and be proud to serve any client.”

MBK Real Estate was born and raised in Irvine. The organization has expanded to 2,200 employees services 33 communities that offer “quality services with genuine care.” That care is embedded into corporate culture.

Continuing Life LLC of Carlsbad, Calif. has over 2,200 employees at six sites throughout the U.S. The organization prides itself on its care methodologies for employees and residents.

On the Fortune survey, one employee responded, “During COVID-19, seeing the company find jobs to have all employees working during hard times was very meaningful and says a lot about the company overall.”

That care translates to residents as well: “Our financial program has saved residents from the impact that rising health care costs and inflation takes on their fixed incomes,” says Warren Spieker, managing partner of Continuing Life in an interview with Business Wire.

Retirement Center Management (RCM) is a sharpshooter from Houston. The organization of 1,900 members sets its sights on “exceptional quality of life and gracious living for residents.” To support its goal, RCM focuses on staff development and training.
