Our Mission & Values

Our Mission Statement

Ave Maria Village, inspired by the Sisters of Mary of the Presentation, serves those in our care with respect and compassion as we strive to fulfill the healing mission of Jesus.

Healing Hospitality

At Ave Maria Village, healing hospitality is part of our culture. Our goal is to make every person we encounter feel comfortable, welcome, and respected. When practiced faithfully by a dedicated and committed staff, healing hospitality permeates the atmosphere with a sense of warmth and positivity which affects all who enter our doors.

Our Values

Our RESPECT philosophy is a specific set of values which form the basis of all we do to meet the needs of our residents. Each letter in the RESPECT acronym stands for a different value in our care philosophy, as follows:

Relationships
Relationships are purposely developed and nurtured among residents, families, staff, and community. Consistent relationships between residents and staff build trust and enhance continuity of care.

Environment
Our environment is homelike, offering Christ-like hospitality to enhance socialization, independence, and dignity.

Stewardship
Stewardship is using responsibly all of our God-given gifts.

People-Directed Compassionate Care
People-directed care honors residents’ choices, encourages them to maintain control of their lives, and preserves their human dignity.

Ethical Care
Ethical care is guided by the Ethical & Religious Directives for Catholic Health Care Services in all our decision-making. We act on behalf of justice for all, especially for the poor and the most vulnerable in society.

Compassion
Compassion calls us to love and respect those in our care as Jesus would, recognizing the individuality of each person and responding to their physical, emotional, spiritual, and social needs.

Teamwork
Teamwork commits us to the common good by serving with Spirit-filled joy and integrity. All team members are individually responsible for promoting an atmosphere of service and open communication among residents, family, and staff.
