Principle 03: Become The National Quality Of Life Leader
Our certified Quality Of Life Directors receive specialized training to provide exciting activities that promote independence, recreation, and socialization.

Principle 05: Become The Market Leader For In-House Therapy Programs
We believe rehabilitation programs should be equally focussed and balanced to meet the needs of all of our residents, regardless of their payment source. Our therapy, quality of life, and clinical teams work closely together to provide true inter-disciplinary care to restore residents to their fullest physical capacity.
Principle 06: We Are A Family-Based Long-Term Care Organization
We are a family-based organization committed to our vision of improving long-term care. While most nursing home companies are owned by banks, investors, stockbrokers, venture capital funds, or credit committees that focus primarily on financial gain and return on investment, we have the freedom to implement revolutionary programs and ideas.
Principle 07: Always Act Ethically And Responsibly
We are an organization that is deeply rooted in the principle of doing the right thing. Our duty to act responsibly stems from the desire and necessity to gain the trust of every resident, family, and community we serve.

Principle 09: Our Unique Business Model Focusses On Resident Care And Outcomes
Our quantitative balanced scorecard is geared toward achieving the highest standard of care for our residents. This business model validates clinical outcomes, ethical standards, and financial outcomes.
Principle 10: Provide Individualized Choices For Resident Environment
We believe our residents’ environment should feel like their home and we are committed to making the effort to meet our residents’ personal choices. We want residents to have the choice of bringing items from their home to their new environment.
Principle 11: Utilize Our Resources To Save Financially Troubled Facilities
Many skilled nursing facilities are facing shut down and the elimination of critically needed jobs and healthcare due to lack off profitability and complicated regulations. We are committed to continue saving long-term care facilities in under-served areas in order to maintain jobs and senior services for those communities.
Principle 12: Establish Transparent Branding Within Our Communities
We believe healthcare is a local issue, that every healthcare facility is unique, and that our facilities are an extension of each community. Through limited outsourcing and a grass roots approach, more money is kept in the local economy, which supports the communities in which our employees live and work.
