The quality of our care is the core of our community.

Since 1965, Calvin Community's success can be attributed to its mission: to provide, on a non-profit basis, services to older adults in a caring, Christian community designed to meet their physical, social, spiritual and psychological needs and contribute to their health, security and happiness.
