Philosophy of care

Our goal is to provide compassionate, quality care that enriches the lives of older people”.
Our philosophy of care recognizes that all people should be treated with dignity and respect, regardless of their disability or extent of their dependence, and that all care practices should aim to support the highest possible quality of life for each individual. We recognize that care should focus on the whole person including physical, social and spiritual and emotional needs, and that care should be flexible and responsive to each individual. As a team, we will provide care in partnership with family, friends, community members and other healthcare staff.
