Our Pillars for Client Centred Care

Our services have been designed to preserve and enhance our clients’ quality of life and independence, in addition to providing support to our clients’ caregivers and families.
 
  1. Individuality
    We regard each client as unique. Clients’ personal preferences, lifestyle choices, and personal environments need to be recognized and respected. Learning the client’s unique history, and accepting each client as an individual facilitates the planning and effective delivery of care and services which are sensitive to their specific diversities.
  2. Care and Well-Being
    Caring and empathy are central to the development of a relationship between our clients and staff. Demonstrating a genuine concern for our clients and their welfare, and providing them with meaningful support and assistance, enhances their ability to achieve an optimum level of health and well-being.
  3. Autonomy and Decision Making
    Client autonomy and self-determination are supported and respected. Clients enhance their ability to direct their own care defining their unique needs, identifying their preferences and making independent choices about their lives.
  4. Client Centred
    As a Client-Centred organization we identify client’s wellness priorities and apply what is learned to the design and delivery of care and service.
