People like to throw the phrase around. But what does it really mean to have work-life balance? Is it just about balancing your time at work with your time away from it?
In Yukon, we see it as the joy of living that comes from experiencing achievement and enjoyment in both your work and your personal life. our communities, our lifestyles, our recreational and cultural options, and the opportunities for service, education, and personal growth means Yukoners don’t wait around for the joy of life to arrive; it’s here and now for us.
Turns out, work-life balance is just another way of saying you’re moving to a continuing care career in Yukon.
You prepared yourself for a continuing care career because that’s where your heart is, where your interests and skills lie. you want to use what you know and have learned to provide the kind of care that enables people to live out their lives in the best way possible.
Well we’ve been preparing too, and what we’ve prepared is a place for you on our team. you’ll be stepping into a full-time career.
Yukon — the greatest place in the country for a continuing care career. We’ve got a space just for you.

Best practices and collaborative teamwork environments? oK, now we have — it’s all part of the package that you get with a continuing care career in Yukon.
But second, that package comes wrapped up in Yukon, the finest wrapping paper this country has to offer. Your new home is a place that can go from wild to refined in a single afternoon. From pristine wilderness to a dynamic arts and culture scene, from vibrant communities to a city with modern infrastructure and all conveniences, and a lifestyle that is both outdoorsy and coffee-shop-culture civilized.
You're going to feel right at home.
How would you design a continuing care program? chances are, it would be rooted in evidence-based practices and partnerships. the facilities would be modern and well resourced.
The staff would work together in an environment that encourages and supports collaborative teamwork and innovation. Every member of the team would enjoy permanent, full-time employment with benefits in an envionment that encourages career growth.
And the whole operation would be guided by a resident-focused principle that valued the needs, desires and hopes of the people in its care.
The result? a continuing care program that leads the way in providing the best possible care, resulting in happy staff, happy residents.
Sure, you could design it differently. But if this is your idea of a continuing care career, you’re thinking of Yukon.
