The Village of St. Edward’s mission of supporting the lives of residents through Christ-centered care allows them to create a community of support, compassion, acceptance, and dignity demonstrated daily through the actions of staff with residents, families and each other and in how they carry out their work.
As a nonprofit faith-driven organization, the care of the residents and treatment of the staff comes before all else at The Village. As both residents and staff are valuable stakeholders who deserve consideration and respect, the culture of The Village encourages staff to follow the Golden Rule of treating others they way that they would like to be treated. The Village’s culture heavily focuses on creating staff whose actions are guided by compassion, respect, commitment, integrity, and benevolence; values that are common themes in Christ’s teachings.
In addition to their creation of a healthy culture, The Village’s significant achievements in providing superior care have facilitated growth. In 2016, The Village of St. Edward opened their Memory Care unit, which features state-of-the-art care technology within a comfortable, home-style atmosphere that allows residents in need of specialized care to enjoy a better quality of life. At the same time, The Village began construction for a new community in Wadsworth (opening in late 2018) that will offer Memory Care, Independent and Assisted Living to older adults.
The Village has exciting developments in store for 2018 and 2019. As mentioned, the Wadsworth location is set to open in late 2018 and The Village expects to break ground in 2018 for their location in Green (set to open in 2019).
The Village of St. Edward believes in supporting the education of students. The Village offers opportunities for clinical training through local nursing schools, physician residency programs, and internships for students looking to enhance their professional learning and their knowledge of Senior Care. In addition, as a partner organization of Catholic Community Connection, they participate in the Summer Fellows Program to source talented interns for a wide variety of fields.
The Village considers the investment in these expansions and programs to serve a dual-purpose of providing additional value to current and future residents in their communities and to provide security and sustainability for the long-term future of The Village of St. Edward.
