Oliver Halsell Care Award

The Award

Fairhaven’s Oliver Halsell Care Award pays tribute to Orange County individuals whose kindness and dedication to serving others is inspirational. These courageous individuals go above and beyond their job description to serve with the utmost care and compassion. Fairhaven’s Oliver Halsell Care Award winners come from many fields including private care, hospice, social work, counseling, assisted living, nursing, therapy and volunteer work.

The Inspiration

We serve from our heart. This is the motto that has guided Fairhaven for more than a century as we serve families with care, compassion and a listening ear. This award is a tribute to our founder, Oliver Halsell, who founded Fairhaven in 1911 to provide a peaceful and comforting place for families to honor their loved ones. This special recognition program honors local individuals who have made serving from the heart a way of life, as Mr. Halsell did so many years ago.

The Banquet

Fairhaven’s Oliver Halsell Care Award recipients will be honored at a special awards banquet in November at Fairhaven’s Mission Viejo location. The banquet will coincide with National Hospice and Palliative Care Month and will honor a year’s worth of achievements among the local community.

"Fairhaven Memorial Park and Mortuary arranged the funeral for my dear wife Jessie. The preparation of every detail was very well done and the appearance of my wife was just beautiful. The Father did a great job speaking about Jessie’s life. Also the soloist and the organist added a nice touch to the funeral. The funeral was handled in a very professional manner and I wanted to express my satisfaction. "
