Inspired Care for retirement living

We are a service-oriented assisted living and memory care community in Springfield, Missouri. Our faith-based mission sets us apart from other competitors because we are able to invest in our residents.  Our unique person-centered approach shows in our meals, activities, tenured staff and the quality of life our residents experience. This faithful service gives seniors the freedom to make themselves at home in a warm, friendly atmosphere. That’s why people choose us: our mission of service and our intimate community.

A Mission of Faith

We are here to serve

  • Not-for-Profit Organization

    Since 1959, our parent company Bethesda Senior Living Communities has been providing quality service to our country’s aging population, and continues to serve with excellence through our independent, assisted living and memory care communities and through benevolent outreach.

  • Faith-Based Organization

    As a faith-based organization, we embrace a philosophy of selfless service. For us, faith is more than any particular religious tradition. Rather, we serve seniors and our communities through care, advocacy, respect and virtuous business practices.

  • Investing in Our Residents

    As a not-for-profit community, giving back is a critical part of our mission. We have a number of outreach programs for our residents and our greater communities. Learn more about our giving programs here.
