It started as a simple mission by founders Todd and Sherry Novaczyk. A quest to find the very best senior living experience for Sherry’s mother, Betty. It has morphed into something bigger. A company committed to making a difference in the lives of our team members and residents.

This is a job where you can make a difference in the lives of so many people. Step up and be a part of something bigger. Join us on our quest to help 10,000 seniors live life on purpose by 2025. What’s the best way to ensure that every moment matters in the lives of our residents? Create an environment that is fun, inspiring and purposeful for every team member. To guide us, we use the following values: Bring Laughter, love and happiness every day! Work hard, play hard and have a blast while serving those in our senior communities. Always do the right thing.

At New Perspective, we strive to empower our team members to always make sure our communities are cared for- in the right way. Keep it simple- no need to over-complicate day to day activities in our senior communities. The simple choice is always the right choice! Finally, our Team strives to wow everyone with hospitality. A New Perspective senior community is welcoming and our Team Members strive to make sure that they are as welcoming to you in “our home” as you would be to someone visiting your home. In order to keep Todd and Sherry’s vision thriving for all those who choose to make a New Perspectives Senior Living Community their home, every team member who comes to work at New Perspective, believes in the vision and mission. For example, Beth Landers is one of our Director District Operations has spent 30 years in the field of senior care. This developed out of a passion for helping the elderly at an early age. Her mother and grandmother coped with the effects of dementia, so she is familiar with the disease and losses it brings. That experience fuels her daily drive to help as many seniors as she can live lives of purpose and fulfillment. You will find stories like Beth’s common with New Perspective Team Members and one of the great reasons you will want to make our community, your community. Afterall, a New Perspective is a great place to call home.
