Values

Honesty
As a home care provider, it’s important that you remain honest with clients and their families. When seniors experience physical and cognitive decline, emotions like fear and anger can dominate conversations. In these situations, it’s tempting to tell people what they want to hear instead of what they need to hear.

Even respected senior care franchises are sometimes guilty of making unrealistic promises and claims. Often, this isn’t deliberate. Instead, it stems from misplaced optimism on the part of care staff. While this can provide short-term comfort to seniors and their families, the consequences can be emotionally damaging to your clients while eroding your reputation for trustworthy care.

We work very hard to communicate with our clients, their families, and our caregivers providing care about expectations, changing needs, and adjusting assistance based on what is best to deliver comfort and safety to the seniors in our care.
