Trees hold significant symbolism. The Tree of Life is a concept spanning across multiple schools of thought. Whether it’s art, religion, or literature, the Tree of Life largely represents the intertwining of all living things.
At A Place at Home, trees represent powerful meaning. Like others, we think of trees as the symbol of the vitality of life, and those that came before us, and those that will carry on after we are gone. It stands for families and ancestors. It stands for strength, stability, and nourishment.
Like families, the branches grow and extend. The leaves, while in appearance similar, each have their own uniqueness and texture. The roots keep it stable and extract nutrients from the earth to help it develop, grow, and repair.
We think of the care that we provide to families and those in need as the roots that support the family system when it is needed the most. It is a means to help nourish the lives of loved ones and the strength that families need when they can’t do it all themselves. It is a belief that caring, above all else, is the path to ensuring generations can live on in the past, present and future with hope and happiness.
When we developed our logo, we thought long and hard about what it means to provide care to families. We saw the tree as that symbol that would represent our commitment to the lives of all that we serve. And when one of those that we have cared for is gone, we plant trees in honor of them through the Arbor Day Foundation. This assures families that the life of their loved one has meant something of significance and will carry on for future generations to provide a symbol of lasting peace and comfort.
A Place at Home is rooted in CARE.
