Fairview Seniors Community is a “faith-based” organization. What does this mean?
The “Mennonite” in our name refers to the Mennonite branch of the Christian faith. Fairview is owned and operated by a group of 22 Mennonite congregations and 1 Brethren-in-Christ congregation from in-and-around the Waterloo Region. So, the religious beliefs of those churches – that is, their “faith base” – is part of who we are as an organization. And those beliefs shape how we approach our work and our care of residents.
The outer circle of Fairview’s logo represents community. The stylized tree represents life within our community and each of the stylized leaves indicates one of the types of basic human needs – physical, mental and spiritual. Within the Fairview community, we seek to meet the needs of the whole person. The colours represent the vibrancy of life here. The break in the circle symbolizes that life within our community comes to an end.
The logo was updated in 2016.
