Druthers Agency was founded in 1974 to address the specialized staffing needs of the Eldercare industry. With more than three decades of experience, our firm is the acknowledged leader in executive search services for Skilled Nursing Facilities, Retirement Homes, Transitional Care & Subacute Units, Assisted Living Facilities and Continuing Care Retirement Communities.
Our firm works directly with Senior Housing organizations to identify executive hiring needs and develop recruitment strategies to address those needs. We present the client with an elite group of individuals whose skills and philosophies will match those required for the position, perform all screening and negotiation, and can even offer interim coverage while the search is being conducted.
As demonstrated by our 36 years of service to the Eldercare community, Druthers Agency is focused on the development of long-term relationships with both clients and candidates. We maintain an active database of highly qualified executives who are looking to improve their current situation, and an active list of upper echelon clients who are looking to improve their current operations.
