About The Bootcamp

At Solinity, we take the mission of working in senior living seriously, and we understand that working in this industry is a privilege and honor. Serving alongside the incredible professionals and meeting residents and families gives us energy.

We strive to put ourselves in the shoes of the community team members and the residents in order to truly understand what they experience on a daily basis. Solinity Founder and CEO Josh Crisp believes that the best way to understand how to serve the industry is by experiencing it first-hand, by living and working in a community.

For that reason, Solinity Leadership developed the first program in the division: the Senior Living Bootcamp.

Bootcamp is a program that allows industry professionals to fully immerse themselves in the senior living atmosphere. For an entire week, team members are able to live and work in a fully-operational community. While there, they will experience a predetermined agenda that allows them to go behind the scenes and truly experience what it’s like to live and work in a community. They will be treated like a resident, participating in activities and interacting with residents as if they lived in the community. Participants will also gain an understanding of daily operations while assisting the team, from CNAs to the front office, execute daily activities, and most importantly, eat, sleep, and live in the community for the entire week.

This fully immersive experience allows senior living professionals to go behind the scenes like never before. To truly put themselves in the shoes of frontline workers and residents. To observe, assist and understand the who and why we serve this industry.

Participants will journal and capture content for a recap blog featuring what was learned each day. Participants will submit a final recap blog of the bootcamp experience.
