Friendly Senior Living to adopt $15/hr minimum wage

Friendly Senior Living announced that the organization is raising its minimum wage to $15/hour effective Sept. 5. This applies to both new and current employees. 

“Every day, workers in senior living and health care do the most important work of providing excellent and compassionate care and services for older adults. Whether it is hands-on care or behind the scenes support, they are essential to enhancing the lives of all Friendly Senior Living residents. This hourly wage increase is very well-earned and deserved,” said Glen Cooper, president and CEO. “Further, as industries locally and throughout the country face staffing challenges, we hope that this will be an effective tool in attracting and retaining top-notch employees to join Team Friendly.” 

With roots dating back to 1849, Friendly Senior Living is a continuum of caring communities, including Cloverwood, an active independent senior living community in Pittsford; Glenmere at Cloverwood, which offers assisted living, enhanced assisted living, and memory care; Linden Knoll, an independent senior living apartment community in Brighton; and the Friendly Home, which offers 24-hour skilled nursing care, memory care and hospice care, as well as short-term rehabilitative care.
