Philosophy of care

Care programs and activities are sensitive to the uniqueness of each resident and seek to support them in an environment to enhance their abilities within the available resources of the residence. Quality resident care includes the promotion, maintenance and restoration of health, the prevention of illness, the alleviation of suffering and the provision of a peaceful, comfortable death when life can no longer be sustained.
