Creating moments of meaning and purpose.
Here, a love of community runs deep. From small gestures of kindness to large scale initiatives, we’ve developed programs for clients and staff to give back in the ways they choose.
Most of us can relate to the power of working towards a goal or the excitement of making a longtime dream come true. The New Chapters Program is designed to fulfill a senior’s wish to reach a rehab recovery goal, re-experience an important life event or cross something off their bucket list. Our clients have achieved some amazing milestones and crossed some really cool stuff off their lists; from driving a racecar, to being honored for WWII service in Washington, DC or even downhill skiing. Our clients inspire us!
Our mission is to support organizations and programs that provide meaning and vitality in the lives of seniors and staff members living and working in long term care. Our Foundation believes that when you meet people where they are on their aging journey, miracles can happen. We support organizations that create opportunities for helping people live their best lives.
Backpack to School
Backpack to School aims to provide necessary school supplies to the children in grades K-6 of every long-term care staff member in our partnering facilities. Ensuring the best possible educational experience is increasingly expensive, and the financial challenges any family can face makes them an “extra” some parents cannot always afford. The Backpack program allows us to offer thanks for our employees’ selfless service, along with tangible support for the future of the young people who will one day care for America’s seniors—and for us.
Hear from Our Community
Our clients and staff share what some of these experiences have meant to them.
Bless their hearts, all these great therapists over here were a great help… It didn’t matter how small the progress was; they would just keep encouraging me.
Bill and Ellie Dirks
They treated their guests here not as patients but as loved ones. That elevated the experience in a way that, I would say, I would only bring my family to Marquis. I wouldn’t take them anywhere else.
Feel proud of what you do because that’s not just a career, not just a profession. It’s an art, it’s a gift, and it changes people’s lives.
Monte and Melody Graham
You can’t give them a gift, so all you can say is ‘thank you,’ and mean it.
With therapy I’m walking! They really helped me get my confidence back by working with me and fighting for me.
It couldn’t be better than it is. And that’s my pitch!
