“We” statements. Homestead Village’s Values and Philosophy of Care boldly assert eleven “We” statements. Each states what we believe. The governing leadership expects every stakeholder of Homestead Village to uphold and follow these creeds. It is not a choice – it is a necessity to fulfill Homestead Village’s mission, vision and purpose. In our modern society, it is frowned upon to demand that people do anything. Instead we ask, encourage and appeal to people to behave and participate in a certain fashion. The Homestead Village Values and Philosophy of care are not a choice. As you read each statement, it is clear that a reasonable person would readily agree with each and every one. So the real challenge is not in accepting these statements, it is living them:
Our Philosophy of Care
We believe in the dignity, inherent worth and right to self-determination of each individual resident.
We strive to meet the health and wellness needs of residents at all levels along the continuum of care.
We provide an environment that enhances and encourages continued personal growth and life satisfaction.
We make decisions utilizing open and honest communication involving residents, their families, and members of the health team,
We exercise thoughtful stewardship of the resources of the resident, Homestead Village and the greater community.
Whether you are a resident, employee team member, board member, family member or other stakeholder, these values guide us in our daily tasks and in our interactions with one another.
