The Second Paycheck: Making a Difference in Seniors’ Lives

When asked why we love working at Carlton, many of us will say it’s the feeling of making a real impact in the lives of seniors. We call it the “second paycheck.” Sure, we get paid for our work, but the true reward is the fulfillment we get from knowing we’re enhancing the quality of life for our residents. It’s the smiles, the gratitude, and the knowledge that we’re positively shaping someone’s day. It’s why many of our staff members have chosen to work at Carlton over other industries.
