Kallimos Communities Balance the
Need for Both Home & Community
Privacy & Companionship
While honoring the sanctity of each person’s home and our need for privacy, in Kallimos, we also recognize the human need for living in community. Loneliness and isolation are just as deadly as any disease of the human body. Kallimos communities foster deep relationships between neighbors, care partners, and the larger community to ensure that people are protected by the social fabric of being well-known. We do this by including employees who are trained to weave a web of connections into the tapestry of the community. In this way, the person is never overlooked and social, emotional and spiritual needs become just as important as physical needs. Kallimos blends the human needs of both privacy and community, and the need to balance giving and receiving into a place where everyone feels at home.
