Since 2004, we’ve created a culture where our staff can innovate and grow — while our residents thrive and their families enjoy peace of mind.

We’re JUST GETTING started!

Energy, innovative processes, and our aptitude for joy equip us to deliver on our promise — to provide exceptional care and extraordinary living.

About Jaybird

Leaders with heart—who care.

Portrait of Ken Russel, Chairman.
  1. Good things come from hard work, modesty, and discipline.

  2. Integrity is the engine that drives all good outcomes.

  3. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, we must treat everyone with respect. Respect is fundamental to living a great life with those in our communities and on our team.

It’s leadership like this that you can find in all of our teams and communities throughout the Midwest.
