Our Core Values
- Joy in Service
At Navion, we strive to make a difference in every life we touch. We take great pride in what we do, and we consider the trust families place in us a sacred honor. Caring for seniors is not just our purpose; it's our passion. We are committed to excellence, to being the leaders in senior living.
Navion Senior Living was founded by Stephen Morton, one of North Carolina’s senior housing leaders. Having successfully co-founded and led the two largest senior housing companies in North Carolina, he started Navion Senior Living with the mission of pushing the senior housing industry forward. This mission is infused into everything that we do at Navion, from our employee scholarship program to our cutting-edge Memory Care program that makes use of the latest research to pilot virtual reality programs in our communities. Our goal at Navion Senior Living is to create an environment where our employees and our residents thrive each and every day.
