WHY DO WE CARE?

EVENTUALLY, EVERYONE NEEDS CARE

Right now our fragile citizens are being forced into institutionalized environments where they must rapidly adapt to an often harsh and rigid institutional routine, deprived of privacy and liberty, and subjected to a diminished, stigmatized status - housed with over a hundred people, and surrounded by staff who are stressed out, overworked, and underpaid - as you can imagine the experience can be stressful, unpleasant, and very overwhelming.

When most people first enter Senior Facility, of course, they find that being forced to adapt to an often harsh and rigid institutional routine, deprived of privacy and liberty, and subjected to a diminished, stigmatized status and extremely sparse material conditions is stressful, unpleasant, and difficult.

Care is something very person needs. There are two key aspects of care - people and environment. All of us are shaped and transformed by the environment we live in, and are naturally influenced by the people around us.

A home setting provides an adaptable environment which promotes individualized care. The small scale setting allows our Care Team the opportunity to adapt the care to our members unique needs. Our Care is built on 8 pillars; Compassionate Care, Nutrition, Activities, Education, Arts, Culture, Socialization, and Spiritual Support. Each pillar of care is adapted to incorporate the care theme.
