Our Mission

 

At Somerby, our mission is to inspire and nurture successful living each and every day.
That inspiration to “go for it” can keep you vital long into your golden years. At Somerby, we support your zest for living. Our Residents, Families and Associates come together in each special senior living community to create a place that’s Full of Life.

Somerby is a wholly owned subsidiary of Dominion Partners, headquartered in Birmingham, Ala. With a passion to serve, the principals of Dominion Partners have been actively involved in owning and developing unique senior living communities for more than 20 years, consistently providing quality retirement living throughout the Southeast. In addition, the Somerby leadership team has more than 100 years’ combined experience serving seniors and their families. Investing in the lives of others is what brings us joy. This level of experience and commitment is the foundation upon which we’ve built The Somerby Spark – an approach to retirement living that is reflected in our Associates every day and is embodied by our core values: purpose-filled, joyful, resourceful, inspired, honest and people-centered.

Discover Your Spark®
Spirituality
Purpose

Discover Your Spark®

The Somerby approach to wellness provides a lifestyle rich in opportunities for lifelong learning and discovery. Our methodology, Discover Your Spark, encourages all Residents to nurture and strengthen their connections with their Families, friends and interests while enabling them to explore new relationships and experiences through our five pillars — Spirituality, Purpose, Activity, Knowledge and Relationships.

Spirituality

Activities and programs are designed to allow Residents opportunities to grow their faith and enliven their spirits. Whether the program helps Residents grow in their religious faith or helps them get in touch with nature and the beauty of the world, spirituality is explored at all levels.

Purpose

A purpose-driven life is a fulfilled life. Residents who move to Somerby have lived full lives, full of purpose. And that doesn’t stop once they walk through our doors. Somerby respects, supports and encourages further exploration of that purpose by making opportunities available to explore new interests and get involved in the surrounding community.

Activity
Knowledge
Relationships

Activity

Being active both physically and mentally is important in preserving independence and enhancing quality of life. Lifestyle programming at Somerby centers on personal wellness and provides an inspired lifestyle rich in opportunities to learn, grow and engage.

Knowledge

We use our resources and strong relationships with local hospitals, universities, civic-minded organizations and a variety of special-interest groups to build strong educational programming. Residents have opportunities to explore different cultures, learn new languages and develop new skills or even re-engage in interests from the past.

Relationships

We pay close attention to preserving the personal networks of our Residents and Families. We work to help them maintain these connections and encourage ongoing interaction that enhances their relationships and zest for life. Lifestyle programming includes a myriad of social interactions that foster family connections and new friendships.

These pillars form the foundation on which all Somerby programming is designed. Our events, outings and activities are purposefully crafted to connect with one or more of our five key Discover Your Spark objectives: support positive life choices, foster meaningful relationships, honor history and traditions, encourage exploration and growth and be champions of fun
