Holistic care approach based upon the 3 pillars of Personalism
honoring the inherent dignity of each and every person
assuming personal and moral responsibility
We are looking to support not only people with DD but also their families who often suffer from the incredible stress of caring for their family members isolated in their homes. Trying to navigate and fight a system while in the midst of isolated crisis is too much for any person to manage. We are here to help.
We nurture human potential
We develop innovative and effective solutions
We partner with families and communities
We look to a holistic care approach
We build on an individual’s strengths
Information regarding care and support needs of our most vulnerable is often biased towards “community” or “institution” and it seems that choice and individuality of the person are forgotten.
We need to look at how various aspects of one’s life intersect to improve their quality of life and give meaning to their life. Access to appropriate healthcare is extremely important and is often forgotten by the systems that provide social welfare.
We support a continuum of care which looks at individual, family and community strengths to promote health, safety, relationships and quality of life for people with intellectual disabilities.
We realize and understand the diversity this population experiences. Everyone is different and may have a variety of support needs in order to maintain their health and safety. Community means relationships and we realize that there are also a variety of community settings which people call home. We are not advocating for one setting over another but for the setting which the person chooses and one which promotes their health and safety.
We want people to understand that there are many models – inclusion is one model. It is a good model but it may not be the best for everyone. We, as family members and community members, must look at what works for each individual and allow choices to be made.
