Mission and Philosophy

Standing on Our Values and Strength

We are able to provide the highest level of care to our residents because we keep our focus on what truly matters: honoring God, putting people first, and building long-lasting relationships.


Our Mission

We are committed to providing the highest quality of care and support services in order for our residents to fully embrace the love and joy that each day offers. This pledge is embraced by every team member and provides the core foundation as we strive to fulfill each resident’s unique set of support needs while honoring their individual lifestyle and preferences.

Our Philosophy

We are dedicated to the philosophy of aging in place – staying at Columbia Cottage regardless of changing care needs – while giving the highest regard to residents’ individual choices and preferences. Our philosophy enables our residents to enjoy their lives in a setting in which they are genuinely cared for by people who have dedicated their lives to serving others.

Our Values

Our values reflect that of Horst Management Services, with a resident-centered focus, and provide the framework in how we engage with and respect each other and those we serve.
