Ware Presbyterian Village

 
Overview

Ware Presbyterian Village is a not-for-profit Continuing Care Retirement Community offering many employment opportunities. As a subsidiary of Presbyterian Senior Living , Ware Presbyterian Village is an integral part of an organization that has worked for more than 75 years building communities that make our residents feel at home. This connection provides Ware Presbyterian Village the strength of a relatively large organization, and the financial resources to provide the security that older adults expect from an organization that promises to be there for as long as needed, reflecting Presbyterian Senior Living’s commitment to people before profits. This is a place where staff can know each resident as an individual, and where resident likes and dislikes are recognized and accommodated whenever possible. We feel that caring for people is not just a job – it’s our calling.

Being not-for-profit gives our staff the freedom to concentrate on the needs of residents first without the dual responsibility of satisfying the needs of investors. This helps us to remain more sharply focused on meeting resident needs. We believe that the ability to express these higher values also enable us to attract employees and volunteers with a similar commitment to the people we serve.

Culture
Our Not-for-Profit Status Being not-for-profit gives Presbyterian Senior Living the freedom to concentrate on the needs of residents first. While for-profit corporations have the dual responsibility of providing care and satisfying the needs of investors, we can be more sharply focused on meeting the needs of residents. We believe that the ability to express these higher values also enables us to attract employees and volunteers with similar values. Our Perfect Size Presbyterian Senior Living has the strength of a relatively large organization, and the financial resources to provide the security that older persons expect from an organization that promises to be there for as long as they need us. Our BBB+ rating by Standard and Poor's is an affirmation of the financial strength behind this promise. Our individual facilities, however, are relatively small reflecting Presbyterian Senior Living's commitment to the personal touch. Our communities are places where the staff can know each resident as an individual, and where resident likes and dislikes are recognized and accommodated whenever possible. Our Unique Communities The common ingredient in every Presbyterian Senior Living location is the care and compassion articulated in the Mission Statement - everything else about each Presbyterian Senior Living community is unique. From the design of the buildings to the food service programs to the planned social and recreational activities, each Presbyterian Senior Living community has its own personality. Our residents work hand-in-hand with Presbyterian Senior Living management and staff to create the kind of communities they really want. Resident Self-Determination is how we describe the self-governance and active involvement our residents have in designing programs, participating in committees, as well as managing activities and events that direct Resident Life in each of our 14 communities.
