When we were called to start a Residential Assisted Living home for the elderly, our first building block was faith.. We all knew we wouldn’t be able to provide a true alternative to conventional assisted living facilities without God’s guidance. We knew that to build something as unique as we dreamed, our faith would be key and so we began and will remain a Faith Based company.
According to encyclopedia.com, a faith-based organization is defined as a group of individuals united on the basis of religious or spiritual beliefs. Traditionally, faith-based organizations have directed their efforts toward meeting the spiritual, social, and cultural needs of their members. This is exactly what we strive to achieve for our residents, families, and employees. Each member of our Optimized Senior Living family, has their own definition of what it means to be faith-based and how this foundation will be demonstrated.
Tim, a co-owner, has spent more time than any of us in and out of nursing homes and assisted living homes visiting his own parents. explains what it means to him to be a faith based home. “
