It is their quest to develop many communities and villages where people can feel safe and get back to basics with what they call eldership living. The way all cultures use to live many generations ago - passing their heritage's to the next generation with honor, respect and integrity from where they came from and what they stood for from their roots and what their ancestors taught them.

Enable and empower individuals with more self respect, with more self esteem, self sufficient, and have more confidence to make better decisions and choices in life. For older adults to live at home or closer to family and loved ones in a setting that will enable independent living to the extent possible so they won't have to end up in institutional dwellings in their most precious years when they have the most to offer to the youth with the wisdom glue - strength and comfort they can bring to the family of today.
The Kaufmanns believe that to get back to the basics is the best way we can all start to Improve the quality of life and care for our youth and especially the elders that do not belong at a hospital or a assisted residential or nursing home in many cases. The family always planned and expected to care for the aging parents and the youth helped to care for them and family took care of family.
