What Really Matters? What really matters to each staff and resident? How does that compare to the goals of Ascension Health Homes? Let’s take a look at the highlighted words they all shared at our recent Thanksgiving Celebration. We found some revealing insight on what really matters to them all.
In 2010, Nadine Carlson was presented an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of the aged, mentally ill, developmentally disabled and physically handicapped. She focused on finding strong staff with empathy, compassion, kindness and heartfelt care for the people that would live in the homes.
The goal was to create an environment where family, their kids, parents, guardians, son and friends knew the individuals they loved and cared for had a home with stability, qualified assistance and great food! Of course consideration of the resident’s and staff’s desire to celebrate fun holidays such as Thanksgiving and Christmas is important as well as honoring their love of cats and the house dog Lucy.
In addition, our communication about each resident’s health, and safety to their defined individuals heighten the resident’s ability to thrive. Each of their desires to participate in activities such as the YMCA, senior center, community events, get-togethers, shopping and church are suitable to their age and allow each of them to use their strength and abilities.
What really matters? The words of thanks spoken by staff and the residents. It is rewarding and humbling to see their similarity to the goals established for Ascension Health Homes. It is our honor to provide comfort, care and compassion to our residents now and those to come. We are very thankful! Enjoy looking at the pictures from our Thanksgiving celebration.
