Our tradition of quality dates to 1917, when Englewood neighborhood resident Susie Woodman, Dr. William Gregg and a group of volunteers founded Oakhaven Old People’s Home. The community, which adopted the name “Smith” in 1929 to honor a generous gift from the estate of Emilie Smith, evolved to become Smith Senior Living.
To care for Residents of Smith Crossing and Smith Village who outlive their resources is of the utmost importance to our organization. Emilie’s Fund depends on approximately $2 million each year to cover these expenses.
The foundation for our success is the dedicated and professional people who work within our organization. Smith Senior Living is looking for compassionate and energetic individuals to join our team.
