Discover. Learn. Grow.

At Sequoia Living, we Never Stop Growing no matter our age or ability.

Whether you’ve dedicated your life to seniors, you are starting an encore career, or you are looking for your first professional job, there are many opportunities at Sequoia Living. From communities to programs to services, Sequoia Living team members provide support to socio-economic diverse older adults and people with disabilities.

At Sequoia Living, you will meet people who are new to the industry and those who have been around 10, 20, 30, or even 40 years. Regardless of how long they’ve been with us, their faces radiate with the joy of coming to work, serving others, and being part of a team.

“It’s still interesting for me,” says Victoriya Kushnir, who joined the team in 2014. As a Resident Care Coordinator, she works with over 400 seniors at two affordable housing communities in San Francisco. She connects them to resources such as food programs, transportation, and home care services – all services which can make their lives better. “I like to meet people, build relations, and see the results.”

Victoriya finds ways to alleviate residents’ mental and emotional struggles, including feelings of loneliness, helplessness, depression, and worthlessness. “Our job is to make their life easier, more normal. We can’t fix everything, but we can help change their life for the better.”

“We try to figure out what they like, such as individual or group activities. During Covid, we taught people how to use Zoom. Now we do hybrid groups events both in-person and online. It’s a very rewarding job.”
