Why Resthaven?

The Resthaven Way

The Resthaven Way is our relationship driven approach to the way we deliver care and services to our residents and clients. It is rooted in our mission and commitment to building relationships that enrich the lives of who we serve. It is the way we strive to behave every day.

The Resthaven Way was developed from the ground up by a team of direct care workers. They came together from all over our continuum of care to create the five service excellence standards we work to demonstrate in each day:

  • Ownership
  • Teamwork
  • Professionalism
  • Personalization
  • Servanthood

These standards of behavior were adopted by our leadership team and implemented through our managers. We hold each other accountable to these core standards every day and to the mission and vision established in 1945.

We are community owned and governed. Family members of our residents and over 400 community volunteers also play a key role in providing quality care in an innovative, caring environment.


Resthaven Mission & Vision

Our mission - With a tradition of service that dates back to 1945, the staff and volunteers live the Resthaven Mission every day:
