Our People


Our staff is comprised of dedicated professionals from all kinds of different backgrounds. While many members of our team come to caregiving through nursing or CNA paths, Occupational Therapy or social work, others support our mission from paths such as business or the arts.

We celebrate our value of individuality, understanding that each team member brings with them their unique expertise that elevates our Joy’s House strengths and helps us to innovate new programs.

From our direct care team providing personal care and meaningful activities, to our administrative team working behind the scenes, we all work together to provide exceptional care and support for our Guests and caregivers. Learn more about becoming a part of our team here.
