Philosophy

Our Values Statements reflect our Philosophy of Respect

 

Relationships

Relationships are purposely developed and nurtured among residents, families, staff, and community. Consistent relationships between residents and staff build trust and enhance continuity of care.



Environment

Environment is homelike, offering Christ-like hospitality to enhance socialization, independence, and dignity.



Stewardship

Stewardship is using responsibly all of our God-given gifts.



People-directed Care

People-directed Care honors and respects residents' choices, encourages them to maintain control of their lives and preserves human dignity.



Ethical Care

Ethical Care is guided by the Ethical & Religious Directives for Catholic Healthcare Services in all our decision-making. We act on behalf of justice for all, especially for the poor and the most vulnerable in society.



Compassion

Compassion calls us to love and respect those in our care as Jesus would, recognizing the individuality of each person and responding to their physical, emotional, spiritual and social needs.



Teamwork

Teamwork commits us to the common good by serving with Spirit-filled joy and integiry. All team members are individually responsible for promoting an atmosphere of service and open communication among residents, family and staff.
