Meet Ted Burgess, our Executive Director at Oakmont of Camarillo.
Executive Director Ted Burgess joins Oakmont of Camarillo with 35 years of experience in senior living and a lifelong passion for caring for seniors. He first began working with seniors as a volunteer choir director at a retirement community. This experience taught him how to enjoy life and embrace retirement, and it ultimately inspired his long career and dedication to improving the lives of seniors.
With his experience, Ted could have selected to work for any senior living company. When asked why he chose Oakmont Senior Living, he says, “Oakmont has a strong reputation and is known for providing premium living accommodations and the highest standards of care. This is a company that is committed to exceeding the expectations of residents and their families. I am proud to be a part of this team.”
Ted says that his primary goal is to deliver a comprehensive experience for his residents, from custom built homes to gourmet dining and meaningful social activities. He appreciates the opportunity to serve as a resource to families, so that they can make informed decisions for their loved ones.
When Ted is not at work, he enjoys spending time with his wife and two very active six and eight-year-old grandsons. Since his time singing with seniors 35 years ago, he is still an active musician, playing several instruments and singing. As a lifelong learner, he believes that active engagement and learning are the keys to a happy life, regardless of age.
