Aegis Living is a nationally recognized company that is known for its innovative offers in the area of assisted living. Chairman Dwayne J. Clark (right) founded the company 21 years ago with a disruptive mindset to redefine the life experience for elderly people in need of care. This arose out of frustration with housing options for seniors and the poor standard of service in caring for his own mother. Aegis Living offers well-equipped, assisted living with the amenities of a five-star hotel, combined with excellent care from highly qualified and valued staff. Aegis lives in West Seattle offers 82 apartment-style units for those who can no longer live independently and for those with advanced memory loss. Innovative Life Enrichment ™ activities target the mind, body and spirit to keep seniors physically and mentally healthy. “The first-class environment makes every day a celebration and offers a wonderful backdrop for the excellent care and the sense of belonging of our warm and loving employees,” says Clark.
A “people first” company that recognizes that people are at the heart of its success, Aegis Living treats employees as family members, just as they regard residents as family. Aegis Living Rewards employees with outstanding perks and benefits, including the annual Dream Big giveaway, with a range of cash prizes. In 2017 Aegis Living one was named by Glassdoor Top 50 best employers – the first assisted living company to be placed on the national list of workplace tests.
