Q. Why is Hearthside a "non-profit" and does that make a difference?
A. Hearthside was built in 1994 as a service to this community by a local church. They designed Hearthside to be operated as a "non-profit" service for the benefit of senior citizens and their families. Hearthside was the first facility of its type built in our community and has been serving this community for amost 20 years. We believe our residents benefit from their care not depending on a corporation having to make a "profit" and from their facility not being part of a corporate chain headquartered many miles away.
