Watch our staff testimonial videos to learn why our staff love working at On With Life!

"On With Life is a top workplace and is what it is because of the people that fill it. From the nursing staff to dietary to maintenance to therapy. The amount of love and support that transcends all departments throughout the building really is overwhelming. It makes me proud every day to have such wonderful co-workers. And most of all because of the Persons Served that fill it. They are what drives us to be better, to think harder, to never give up and encourages us to push the limits to do all that we can for THEM. They are our motivators and being a part of all of their journeys is a daily blessing and honor." - Jess Blough, COTA, Post-Acute Inpatient Rehabilitation program
