Our Purpose

We treat everyone that comes into a Jaybird Senior Living community as if they are the most important person, with individualized approaches and attention.

We carry this philosophy over to our corporate culture as well. We believe in supporting and developing our talented staff as they grow and thrive in their careers of service.

A Message From Our Chairman

“Jaybird” was my mother’s nickname.

Smiling senior woman

For me, the Jaybird brand is a reminder that we are taking care of someone’s mother or father. To be sure, it is a tremendous responsibility and a privilege, and it is surely one our entire organization takes seriously.

The company’s namesake serves as a reminder of those values that my mother worked so hard to instill in me.

  • ONE

    Good things come from hard work, modesty, and discipline.

  • TWO

    Integrity is the engine that drives all good outcomes.


    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.
