Are You Ready to Join the Good Shepherd Team?
Good Shepherd Communities is a team based organization with a strong commitment to person-centered care. Our team members are challenged to embrace this vision, and carry it into every interaction with our residents, our staff and the greater community.
If you can say yes to the following, you may be ready to join our Team:
We value person-centered care, focusing first on each individual’s unique personality and how they wish to live each day.
We value elders, families and staff as integral team members working together to create a fulfilling and meaningful life.
We value self-led teams that decide among themselves the most appropriate individual and team responses to the needs and desires of the elderly.
We value “home” as relating to each individual heart’s desire and strive to enable the choices and quality of life elders enjoyed in their homes. Each elder is respected as an individual and shares in decision making.
We value community where members live, work and socialize; where they are actively engaged and determine for themselves how to give and receive within their friendships, household, neighborhood, city, state, and country.
We value growth in training (skills) and education (knowledge) as both means and end. By deeply investing in staff, residents and family growth, we further enhance community possibilities of individual fulfillment and set an implicit standard that guides our behavior as an organization.
