CHANGE lives, including yours

Be part of something extraordinary

Imagine being able to impact the lives of people just by doing what you love to do. Maybe it’s making a meal that will make someone’s day. Or perhaps it’s helping to organize a hands-on class that touches someone’s life.

At Mather LifeWays, we believe in creating unique opportunities and exciting possibilities—both for the older adults we serve and the professionals we employ. That means we’re committed to providing a healthy culture of personal growth where you can reach your full potential.

Our organization offers employment opportunities in the three key areas of service: senior living residences, community-based initiatives, and our Institute on Aging. Together, these areas of service employ an all-star team of 500+ professionals, ranging from workflow gurus to housekeepers, culinary staff to concierges, CNAs to building services pros. Every member of this diverse group supports Mather LifeWays mission of enhancing the lives of older adults by creating Ways to Age Well.SM

All who visit, live, and work here will be free to be confident, creative, and curious. Free to be surprising, strong, and secure. And free to be reinvented, renewed, and restored.

Meet coworkers who feel like family. Find a place to work that feels like home.

Headquartered in Evanston, Illinois, Mather LifeWays offers employment opportunities at our main offices, residences in Illinois and Arizona, and community programs in the Chicagoland area.
