Why a Not-For-Profit?
Westminster Village retirement community in Dover, Delaware, is part of Presbyterian Senior Living, a not-for-profit organization, providing retirement and senior care services to more than 6,000 seniors in 29 locations in the mid-Atlantic region of Pennsylvania, Maryland, Ohio and Delaware.
Being not-for-profit gives our organization the freedom to concentrate on the needs of residents first. While for-profit corporations have the dual responsibility of providing care for residents, as well as satisfying the needs of investors, we can remain 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.
Presbyterian Senior Living Communities have 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. Our individual communities, however, offer a range of sizes and reflect our commitment to the personal touch. They are places where the staff can know each resident as an individual, and where residents’ likes and dislikes are recognized and accommodated whenever possible.
