United Zion’s mission is to provide superior quality services to the aging, based on Christian principles, in a loving and caring community, encouraging independence, promoting wellness, and preserving human dignity.

United Zion is a “person-centered” community: staff know each resident, honor their story, and offer daily care that meets them where they are. We seek team members who are technically skilled and able to embody the loving and caring that’s central to our mission. We respect residents and each other as a team, working together towards common goals in order to provide the utmost care while maintaining a strong commitment to safety and quality service.
