See what some of the Huntington Common Team Members say about life at our community:
"I feel blessed to have found Huntington Common, I come to work each day to work with an amazing, kind and talented group of people. Our residents are exceptional, they live such amazing lives, and I am honored to be a part of our support team."
"I am happy to be at a place where not only do I love working, but I could retire here…literally! What a blessing to work in an atmosphere where you feel like your coming to see family every day, in a beautiful environment."
"As the “money lady” here at Huntington Common, I feel very fortunate to be able to assist all of our residents in not only business related matters, but also in playful activities such as field trips and monthly trivia games. The enjoyment that we bring each other is immeasurable. The laughter that we share is special as it allows one’s mind to stay sharp and healthy. Our residents and team are simply priceless!"
"Every day working in Reminiscence provides all of us caregivers much laughter and precious moments. There is truly a strong sense of family that exists in our neighborhood. To serve our residents is truly a blessing. To be part of such a loving place is very rewarding."
"A job has to feed you in many ways and my job as the Dining Director at Huntington Common does just that….feeds me in so many ways. It feeds my passion by allowing me to create the best dining experience possible for our residents, it feeds my heart by allowing me to do what I truly love to do every day, and last but not least it feeds my soul to know that I have joined my fellow team members in enhancing a resident’s day."
"I am fortunate to have worked at Huntington Common for the last 19 years. The residents are great and the team is a joy to work with. It’s not often you find a job you love to do in your own hometown where you grew up. So many people in Kennebunk had a positive influence on me while I was growing up. A number of them - teachers, neighbors, coaches and even my mailman have moved into Huntington. It is rewarding to provide a safe and secure home to those residents I have known since childhood as well as the new friends and families I have met along the way."
"The true significance in life comes through relationships. Working at Huntington Common allows me to plan and create significant moments for people and that makes me feel useful."
"I thoroughly enjoy coming to work everyday because of the residents. I get to assist in making sure they have the BEST quality of life possible and I get to do it for a company that has high standards and keeps raising the bar year after year."
"I feel thankful every day to be able to come to a job I truly enjoy. Working with our residents allows me to always be learning from the wisdom they impart. I appreciate being able to look into their eyes, to listen to their life stories and contribute to their quality of life. The location of my office affords me a view of our residents and their families sitting on the front porch in the afternoon sun. I can’t tell you how warm that makes me feel as I reminisce about my own mom and how much she loved the sun. I come from a large family and I look to our residents as well as my fellow team members as my extended family. Thank you for the gift of yourselves everyday!"
"I have the opportunity to bring new families into our community. I can proudly showcase the beautiful and engaging neighborhoods. Most importantly, I can offer families insight to the exemplary care Sunrise offers to all of our residents. I am very proud of what Huntington Common can provide to the local community members."
"I am so fortunate to have joined such a magnificent ‘Team of Serving Hearts.’ Every single person I work alongside is exceptionally dedicated, positive and talented. Each truly brings the spirit of Sunrise Huntington Common to life. My job as a team member is to meet prospective residents and their families, introduce them to Huntington Common and assist them as they start their journeys to new and enriching lifestyle here. In this role, I also have the pleasure of spending time with our current residents and to see or hear them speak about how happy they are living here, how caring everyone is. This is why I come to work everyday with joy—to make a difference in people’s lives as part of a team of serving hearts."
