Excellent Workplace Culture
Edgewood employees enjoy camaraderie, and many consider their co-workers as a close-knit group. The residents at Edgewood also become fond friends of our staff. “My co-workers are like my family,” says Amber Colvin, Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN), who’s been with the Edgewood Virginia, MN, community for six years. She enjoys that her teammates do whatever needs to be done.
Whether staff are working in a direct care capacity or in an office setting, the residents are the reason we come to work every day. “Everyone is here to help, everyone plays a key role, no matter what their title is. The staff at Edgewood are rock stars and treat our residents like gold,” says Lori Linder, Business Office Director, who’s been with Edgewood for 20 years.
As a company, Edgewood has been caring for seniors for over 28 years, and recently celebrated the 20-year anniversary of our Edgewood Virginia community. We took the opportunity during that special occasion to visit with several staff members who have been with the team for many years. Those staff shared why they’ve enjoyed such longevity at Edgewood.
Kelly Sandstrom, Life Enrichment Director, has been with Edgewood Virginia for 14 years. Kelly plans to work with Edgewood until she moves in. “I love the residents, it’s like having 200 grandparents.” Watch here to see for yourself why Edgewood is a phenomenal place to work; ”I don’t want to work anywhere else.”

We have flexible scheduling, and both full-time and part-time positions available. At Edgewood, we recognize and respect that everyone’s ideal job and schedule varies.
We interviewed Jason Grannemann, Maintenance Technician, who’s been with Edgewood Virginia for 11 years.

Jason loves his coworkers and the people at Edgewood. He likes the flexibility of his work, which also allows him to enjoy his hobbies.
