Cassia's mission is to foster fullness of life for older adults in the spirit of Christ's love.

The name "Cassia" ('KAS-e-uh) was inspired by an anointing oil made from the bark of the Cassia tree and is said to symbolize the heart of a servant. Cassia provides independent and assisted living communities, memory care, skilled nursing care centers, short-term rehabilitation centers, adult day programs and a variety of community-based services for older adults across five states.

At Cassia, we are on an uncompromising quest for solutions to live well. Our faith-based organization is centered around the following values: collaboration, compassion, excellence, innovation, integrity, respect, stewardship and unity. We serve all beliefs and backgrounds and serve all by following One.

Background Statement

In 2018, Augustana Care and Elim Care voluntarily joined together to form Cassia, reinforcing both organizations' missions. With more than 200 combined years of service, the affiliation strengthens our focus on meeting the needs of residents, clients and patients of all faiths. Cassia serves more than 23,500 people annually. We provide housing to more than 3,300 residents including locations where we provide care. Cassia serves about 5,400 people in health care centers; and also provides community-based services to more than 14,700 people, in addition to serving residents.

In Evergreen, our Elk Run community served more than 70 individuals in the past year, with 20 individuals served whose savings were exhausted. Elk Run offers assisted living to older adults in Evergreen. Elk Run also provides respite services for families who need personal time or for individuals who need additional rehabilitation before going home. Elk Run is committed to surrounding mountain communities. In addition to serving residents, the nonprofit assisted living community sponsors a variety of local events and works closely with other healthcare providers in Evergreen.

The Castle Peak Senior Care Center opened in Eagle fall 2016. Castle Peak served 98 individuals in 2019, including 48 in need of financial assistance. Castle Peak offers assisted living apartments, memory care specially designed for those with Alzheimer's and similar conditions; short-term rehabilitation that provides time and therapy to recover from illness or hospitalization; and skilled nursing for those with chronic or medically complex needs.

Both Elk Run and Castle Peak are faith-based nonprofits dedicated to anticipating and meeting the needs of older adults.
