1 2015 Capital Campaign Founded in faith Driven by excellence The VISION lives on the christian village
2 Dear Friends: Fifty years ago, God moved in a phenomenal way when our ministry started with the vision of just a few men. We re again casting a vision for our ministry one of providing older adults options they ve never had in Logan County. And we expect God to again do amazing things. Our plan is to expand the ministry of The Christian Village to include a 12-room assisted living Garden Villa for memory care residents. We ll also be adding a new Rehab-to-Home wing which will have state-of-the-art therapy equipment as well as a spa-like atmosphere. We will renovate Hope Hall in the nursing home to add private and semi-private rooms, and also update our independent living garden homes and apartments. We re excited to provide options that don t currently exist in our area. And you can be part of it! Participating in our Vision capital campaign is a magnificent way to make a difference in the lives of people in our community for decades to come. Won t you prayerfully consider getting involved? Jo Hilliard, Administrator The Christian Village Founded in faith - Driven by excellence
3 Our mission We exist to honor God by providing a continuum of excellent care and support services, primarily for older adults. Remaining faithful to our mission means providing our residents quality care in an exceptional setting. Our history Labeled a demonstration of Christian concern in brick-and-mortar terms, The Christian Nursing Home opened in 1965 with 48 beds. It was the first nursing home of what would become Christian Homes, Inc. More beds were added over the years, along with memory care. In the 1970 s, garden homes for independent residents were added, followed by senior apartments in the Congregate Building in With its diverse housing options, the name was changed to The Christian Village. Quality care Quality, compassionate care has always been the goal on the campus. As an early newsletter so appropriately explained, The home must excel both in the quality of the nursing service it renders and in the atmosphere that is present. So often, the home atmosphere is just as important as...the quality of nursing care. Over the years, The Christian Village has been blessed by the partnership with countless people who believe in, contribute to and celebrate our extraordinary ministry.
4 What never changes Our motivation for caring The basis of care at The Christian Village is a desire to honor God by valuing every person created in His image, regardless of his or her situation in life. Our support for every resident isn t just a job it s a calling from God. Our focus on holistic care The Christian Village remains committed to meeting our residents physical, emotional and spiritual needs. Our dedicated, highly-trained staff work as a team to provide quality care. Chaplains provide Sunday services, Bible studies and words of comfort for residents and their families. Our volunteers More than 200 volunteers add another level of tender loving care for residents. They bless our residents and, in turn, our residents bless them. Hugs, smiles and meaningful conversations happen every day at The Christian Village. What always changes The ways of providing excellent care We keep up with innovations in medicine, technology and living areas - all of which have changed dramatically since The Christian Village opened 50 years ago. What was a luxury becomes standard As Christian Homes first campus, The Christian Village has undergone numerous renovations to upgrade what we provide residents. The need to expand Today s residents expect excellent care and modern accommodations to meet their needs as their healthcare changes. Founded in faith - Driven by excellence

14 The Christian Homes difference Communities of compassion The Christian Village is one of 13 campuses of Christian Homes, Inc., which has senior living communities in Illinois, Indiana, Missouri and Iowa. The Christian Homes approach to every resident is relational, not institutional we are communities of compassion. Our focus goes beyond basic care. In the course of everyday life with our residents, we form endearing relationships by honoring and nurturing each one of them. Our motivation for caring comes from our conviction that every person is made in the image of God and is equally valued by Him. Regardless of the resident s need failing physical health, dementia, assistance with daily tasks, rehabilitation or enjoying their retirement years while living independently all receive the same compassionate care. Ways we express our compassion The physical, emotional and spiritual needs of our residents are equally important. These needs include quality healthcare, a sense of community, Biblically-based encouragement and financial assistance for skilled nursing residents. We place people in the lives of our residents to provide extraordinary compassionate care. Our Christian administrators and dedicated staff treat our residents, their families and each other the way they them- Founded in faith - Driven by excellence

Our chaplains provide Sunday services, Bible studies, memorial services and words of comfort for residents, their families and the staff. We provide excellent, quality care for our residents and operate in an ethical, God-honoring manner. Christian Homes strives to provide best practices in healthcare, innovative technology and the up-to-date facilities residents expect.
