A Story of
Ministry & Mission

Meet Bonnie

Bonnie moved back to Holland in 1993, where she grew up and raised her family, after a 20 year career with Campus Crusade for Christ, an international Christian organization that empowers and equips followers to be evangelists and disciples throughout the world.  She directed programs in Korea and Singapore, and worked on staff in California and Florida. 

In April 2008 she moved into an independent living apartment at The Warm Friend.  Two years later, Bonnie needed to move to Resthaven’s Care Center, as she began to lose her eyesight and required special care.

Bonnie participates in as many activities as she is able, including Bible studies and worship activities.  Each day, she walks across the hall to a 99-year old neighbor who reads a devotional or Bible verses to her. “I am blessed to be in a community of residents and staff who live out the love and compassion of Christ,” says Bonnie.

For Bonnie and so many other residents, Resthaven provides the confidence and assurance that quality care and deep relationships will continue, regardless of issues of aging or financial limitations.  For over 68 years, Resthaven has served thousands of seniors with compassionate care, many to their life’s end.  It is how Resthaven defines and demonstrates its ministry.

We care…

  • For those who seek a trusted, faith based solution to life's transitions
  • For those who need community purpose, and meaning as they face physical challenges and loneliness
  • For those who can no longer afford the full cost of their care
  • For those with memory loss; over 80% of Care Center residents experience some level of memory loss
  • For those who need affordable assisted living services
  • For those who need quality rehabilitation services following a fall, surgery, or illness
  • For those who seek comfortable, safe accommodations and affordable medical care
  • And for those who need assistance so they can remain at home

 Care Center Resident Bonnie

Our long tradition of compassionate care comes at a cost. As the area's oldest faith-based, non-profit senior care community, Resthaven depends on the financial support of many individuals and organizations to continue its ministry and mission to seniors.

Contributions from our valued donors help to meet the necessary expenses for those unable to meet the full cost of their care. But contributions also support special life-enrichment activities, pastoral care, and extra staff attention to the individual needs and interests of each and every resident. We call it “resident-centered” care.

During this past year, Resthaven has made significant investments in its facilities, including the completion of our Rehabilitation Cottage to provide a comfortable residence to those short term patients receiving physical, occupational or speech therapy by our trained staff. This enhancement of our continuum of care was possible in large part through the generous gifts of donors who understand the needs of seniors and support our mission.

We ask all those who understand the challenges of the aging, and the role Resthaven has played in our community for over 68 years to respond to those challenges, to invest in Resthaven so that we might invest in seniors who want and need the care and nurturing we provide. 

Please consider a tax-deductible contribution to Resthaven to help us continue our mission of providing a continuum of quality care and services to seniors, like Bonnie, with love and compassion.
