Our Core Values

The words that define what we practice each day.

  • Own It!

    When we commit to something, we own it. Every day, we hold ourselves accountable to get it done.

  • Respect It!

    Everybody is a somebody. Each day, we express dignity and respect through a spirit of service.

  • Improve It!

    We are a learning organization, constantly improving ourselves through a listening ear and an open mind. We strive to be better tomorrow than we are today

  • Celebrate It!

    We don’t use the good china just on holidays. We believe in celebrating successes, large and small.

  • Live It!

    We believe in being genuine. We speak openly and truthfully about expectations and concerns.

Our Customer Service Non-Negotiables

The words that define what we practice when meeting someone.

  • Smile!

    We smile when we see a resident, visitor, or coworker.

  • Greet!

    We greet those that we smile to, by saying hello. If we know their name, we use it. If we don't know their name, we ask for it.

  • Listen Intently!

    We don't just ask, we listen when someone tells us how their day is.

  • Be Kind!

    We always respond kindly, even when the other person may not.

Our Leadership

Our leadership team is committed to serving Indiana seniors by providing affordable assisted living in communities that do not currently offer our quality of services and amenities. We believe that everyone deserves to have a beautiful and safe place to live no matter their financial means.
