The UCH Difference
Stepping into a United Church Homes community feels like home, and you’ll notice the difference immediately. You’ll see it on everyone’s faces and feel it from the residents that are living it every day. Whether you’re looking for a new home for yourself or a loved one, you’ll appreciate the friendly, caring and energetic atmosphere within every one of our Life Plan, independent living, healthcare and affordable housing communities.
UCH is one of the nation’s leading nonprofit providers of housing and healthcare services for older adults. Our Live It! hospitality standards aim to show that we are committed to bringing these values to life every day. Our LIVE IT! program centers around three core pillars: Living Life with Purpose, Creating Social Connections and Living Safe and Sound.
Our mission to celebrate the spirit of older adults and help them age abundantly means looking at all factors that contribute to health and longevity, including an intentional focus to transform aging and redefine what it means to be an older adult in today’s world.
Here’s how we LIVE IT!
Live with Purpose
At United Church Homes, your purpose is our purpose, and we invite you to engage wholeheartedly in the possibilities for your life. You’ll be able to explore your passions as you start your next chapter in our comfortable campuses, enjoy an active calendar of programs, events and connections to nearby attractions.
Helping residents lead abundant lives is central to UCH’s mission and purpose. Regardless of how each resident defines abundant living – engagement is fundamental to achieving it. With our unique programs and ample gathering spaces, the choice of what to do each day is endless and entirely up to you. We encourage social connection through visitation and allow residents to have visitors of their choice through our LIVE IT! program.

United Church Homes traces its beginnings to five pastors and congregations who saw a housing need for aging church members. This faith-inspired heritage defines our continued commitment to the servant leadership values modeled by UCH founders. Every day, we work to identify needs among older adults. And together we can find ways to meet those needs in our Life Plan, independent living, healthcare and affordable housing communities.
Person-directed care maintains an ongoing, interactive process between older adults and caregivers that honors the older adult’s dignity and choices in directing their daily life. With person-directed care, the resident remains in control and makes decisions regarding their care.
All Are Welcome
United Church Homes offers inclusive communities for people of all walks of life and backgrounds including LGBTQ older adults, minorities, military veterans, low-income individuals and people of all faiths or no faith.
Our Commitment to Quality
At United Church Homes, our goal is ensuring everyone is treated with dignity and respect. We provide opportunities and encourage UCH employees and staff to grow in their leadership, skills and values. We pursue quality awards and participate in benchmarking programs to chart our progress toward creating abundant life for residents.
