At its June Board Meeting, the Homestead Village Board of Directors approved a new vision statement, the first change in over ten years. The new vision came out of a department leader retreat held in April of this year and was carefully crafted from a list of key visionary statements identified by Homestead's leaders. In addition many other organization vision statements were reviewed to find the right balance between brevity and content. The resulting statement is a unique vision of Homestead Village's preferred future.
Please join with me in welcoming Jessica Good and Krista Murphy-Denlinger to the Homestead Village team. Both will become part of the Apostles Center Leadership Team.
Periodically we post about the changes/improvements to the Apostles Center for Care. Six months ago we highlighted the improved life enrichment program and ongoing culture changes. Here is the latest update.
Our mission states it. We often talk about it. Homestead Village is a compassionate community. Residents serve the greater Lancaster community in so many different ways.
Homestead Village is a wonderful community of individuals 62 and older living vibrant and interesting lives, helping each other and helping the greater community. Homestead Village is a large employer providing full time jobs for over 100 individuals and even more part-time jobs, providing a full range of benefits and creating a great place to work. Homestead Village is a leading business in our community, paying taxes to the local school district and local municipalities.
How hard can it be to move from paper files to electronic health records? The Homestead Village staff members who are responsible for implementing the new electronic health record are learning first hand! Paper medical records include physician orders and notes, nursing and other clinical documentation, tests, care plans, medication and treatment records, and caregiver documentation. For some residents, the paper medical record can grow to mutiple file cabinets! Each doument has to be filed exertly by our Medical Records Staff so that it can be located when needed.
As you know, Homestead Village is served by the Rohrerstown Fire Compay, located just across Rohrerstown Road from The Mews at Homestead Village. Whenever Homestead Village has an emergency, the Rohrerstown Fire Company responds incredibly fast to assist us.
