Fairview DescriptionThe Odd Fellows, an altruistic society organized for the purpose of giving aid to those in need and pursuing projects for the benefit of all mankind, founded Fairview in 1892. The Odd Fellows promote the ethic of reciprocity and charity, founded on pillars of friendship, love and truth. Even today, our organization is guided by those three pillars.

Therapists design programs that are unique to each patient, based on age and different levels of endurance. This allows patients to work at their own pace and reach their full physical potential. The staff at Fairview always goes above and beyond to meet the needs of our residents.
