Homestead Village's mission is to enhance the independence and dignity of each person we serve. We fulfill this mission every day throughout Homestead Village, providing assistance to those who need or desire such services. In the Apostle Center we provide five star staffing every day. Our staffing is just as strong in our memory support areas, including both nursing and life enrichment. We delight in serving supportive services residents in their apartments, allowing them to enjoy their home as long as possible.
The last piece of our caring puzzle is our home care agency. Homestead Village Home Care provides housekeeping, laundry, dining services and nursing in our cottages, Villa Court and The Mews. Homestead Village Home Care also serves the surrounding community, providing assistance to older adults in nearby neighborhoods. Our home care is led by a team of dedicated and capable individuals. Homestead's Executive Director, Carol Carter, oversees the Home Care Agency. Home Care has been the special project of Carol Carter who created the agency and has overseen its growth since the beginning. The day to day operations are handled by Catherine "Kit" Reese. Kit joined the Homestead Village team last year and supervises, hires and schedules the home care team members. Kit has over 25 years of home care experience and comments that she has never worked in a more friendly environment. She enjoys getting to know the residents and has been surprised by how interested the residents were in her. Of course a key home care team member is our Homestead Village MVP, Kathy Bartels, who is featured in this issue. Carol, Kit and Kathy, as well as are many other fine home care team members, embody the mission and vision of Homestead Village. Our goal and desire is to bring professional, quality and timely service to your home if and when you need it.
