We are Cassia

We are Cassia
I am Cassia

In 2018, Augustana Care and Elim Care merged to form Cassia, a name selected from the Bible, which signifies

“Servant’s Heart.”

Our mission is to foster fullness of life for older adults in the spirit of Christ’s love.


Daily StandUp

Daily StandUP meetings help staff members connect with each other while focusing on the people we serve. The meetings take less than ten minutes and revolve around the same value or service standard at all locations. Meetings give us the opportunity to live our values while celebrating employees, volunteers, residents and organizational accomplishments.

Patty Crawford, manager at Open Circle Adult Day Services, believes that Cassia is a place where all of Cassia’s diverse employees can grow, connect and learn, with StandUP providing that connection.

“StandUP is where we engage the power of the sacred,”

Patty points out. She also feels the meetings show a career with Cassia is a career of positive intention. Patty believes that, in turn, “makes for a better life and a better organization.”
