Never Stop Growing

Consider a career working with older adults

Our mission is to provide homes and services for healthy and joyful aging.

Our guiding philosophy is rooted on a commitment to Never Stop Growing. Growth for Sequoia Living is not so much about being bigger; it is about having a healthy dissatisfaction with the status quo with a relentless pursuit of being slightly better than we were yesterday.

The more we learn… The more we know… The better we become.

With a diverse network of Life Plan Communities, programs, and services, our teams of extraordinary people are committed to healthy and joyful aging for older adults in the San Francisco Bay Area. Explore your passion and purpose while making a difference in the lives of seniors.

“At Sequoia Living, we prioritize people. Together, we celebrate superpowers and strive to have the right people in the right positions with the right support to excel each day.”

– Sara McVey, President and CEO
