Commit: A Word From Christie

Tabitha Friends,

At Tabitha we’re Committed to Commitment—it can be found at the heart of all we do. It’s what drives us to provide the best quality care for older adults in the state. It’s doing what we say we’ll do. It’s coming through for the families who’ve entrusted us to care for loved ones.
