Providence Living’s own social-relational model of care is known as Home for Us. Home for Us guides the care your loved one receives, and is based on the following three principles:
- Emotional connections matter most.
- Residents direct each moment.
- Home is not a place, it’s a feeling.
Our Home for Us care philosophy is woven into the services and daily life activities of all residents, giving the care community a sense of family and home. Home for Us enables residents to focus on fully living their lives rather than focusing on the health-related challenges that brought them to long-term care in the first place.
Home for Us allows our care providers to build daily routine around the skills, abilities and interests that our residents have retained rather than those they may have lost. Our new homes will comprise small-group neighbourhoods that emphasize participation and independence in daily activities, like baking, caring for pets, tending outdoor garden areas, as well as recreational activities.
