About Us/Our Mission

Live Longer – Better

Are you interested in living longer and living better? Research shows that living with purpose and engaging in meaningful relationships contributes to a longer, healthier life. At Garden Spot Village we are passionate about purpose, opportunity and living life to its fullest. As a result, 22% of the people coming into the community are 50 and 60 somethings. People say it’s because they experience a different mindset at Garden Spot Village and they can’t wait to live here. While other retirement communities talk about seniors and retirement, you’ll find we talk about people and opportunity. Our heritage, mission and core values play a fundamental role as they ground us in the present and shape our future.

Garden Spot Mission & Values

We will enrich the lives of older adults as an expression of Christ’s love.

We are hardwired to care, connect, and serve. We are a place to belong, and together we will strive to know and be known; to love and be loved; to serve and be served.

We are caregivers, not just caretakers. By fostering growth as individuals and as a community, we embody God’s call to bear fruit from each gift with which He has graciously entrusted us.

We strive to do the right thing right. Excellence in service leads to the delight of our customers and the discovery of our best selves.

We fail forward to cultivate change. We believe innovation and creativity are integrated into everything we do, and engage these gifts to foster meaningful, progressive, and valuable growth.

We believe that selfless love leads to service. Through Christ-like love, we recognize the inherent value of each person and serve those around us with compassion and empathy.

We will serve with honor, or not at all. We recognize that service without integrity is meaningless, and strive to be fair, honest, open, and accountable in every action, no matter how small.

Garden Spot Experience

We frequently have people tell us, “There’s something different here.” They sense it when they walk into the community, when they interact with residents and speak with our team members. The difference? Over time we have shaped an intergenerational, positive, life-giving culture where everyone feels valued. Won’t you join us and discover the Garden Spot Experience for yourself?
