is essential in promoting change and socially responsible choices that are sensitive to the needs of older adults and is best achieved through a strong collective voice of clients, families, staff, volunteers, and community partners.


comes with the understanding that each person is unique, with intrinsic dignity and worth.


is achieved when we reach beyond what was ever thought possible through inquiry, discovery, and lifelong learning.  We apply this to all the work that we do to ensure the highest quality of care and an exceptional experience for the people we serve.
