Artis Guiding Principles

The Artis Way

At Artis Senior Living, we’re dedicated to the Artis philosophy, which reinforces that every task is executed with a passion and focus that ensures the satisfaction and well-being of our residents, families, professional partners and associates.

Our name is actually an acronym, with each letter standing for one of our guiding principles— something we believe in and strive for in every situation, in all our communities:

A = Ability to Have a Voice
R = Respecting and Maintaining Relationships
T = Treasuring Each Person’s Uniqueness
I = Integrity
S = Success and Recognition

Ability to Have a Voice

We believe it’s important that everyone have voice, and that their voice is valued. At Artis Senior Living, residents and their families are valued members of the community—and we create forums to allow their voices to be heard. We host a variety of forums to encourage open discussion among residents, family, and community leaders about wellness, food choices, and everything in between. At Artis, we want to hear your voice.

Respecting and Maintaining Relationships

We recognize that all relationships matter. Every Artis community nurtures partnerships with local healthcare providers and senior living specialists. Within our communities, each person has the power to express their needs and voice their concerns through associate resolution programs and confidential reporting. Our most treasured relationships are the partnerships we forge with our residents and families. Dedicated Directors of The Artis Way Experience conduct extensive onboarding interviews to build a foundation of trust that is maintained through open and regular communication.

Treasuring Each Person’s Uniqueness

With Artis, you can be sure that your unique needs are met and your one-of-a-kind spirit is honored and engaged. We don’t expect you to fit into our community. In fact, it’s quite the opposite. Our Assisted Living and Memory Care communities and programs are designed around you. With Partnership Profiles, a detailed history that tells the story of the person’s life, and choice in celebrations and holidays, who you are matters at Artis.


Integrity is the backbone of everything we do at Artis. We encourage every member of the Artis team to stay connected and contribute to the greater community with our Community Assistance Network (CAN). CAN is a volunteer opportunity for residents that keeps them connected to those organizations that were once an important part of their lives with volunteer opportunities, letter-writing programs and special events. We also feature continuing education and training for our compassionate team of senior care professionals.

Success and Recognition

We believe that a job well done deserves special mention. That’s why we’ve created special awards and recognition programs to showcase the high-caliber individuals who make a true difference in their Artis communities. From partnership awards and employee recognition programs to mentoring, photo books, and our wall of fame, residents and team members alike find a number of ways to shine at Artis.
