Dignity - Freedom
The significance of
these words takes on new meaning when the responsibility of caring
for an elder is concerned. They are also important when choosing
where that elder is going to live.
At Harris Health Centers,
the staff is committed to caring. They use, "A Recipe for
Happiness," and it shows. From help with choosing the right
food for a sensitive stomach, to help with the selection of a
birthday card for a grandchild.
When the discussion leads
to more delicate subjects such as money and health, you will find
Mr. Harris easy to talk to; he's been caring for the family for
over 30 years.
- for Everybody.
It should come as
no surprise that Mr. Harris has personally assembled the staff
at Harris Health Centers. All staff members share similar qualities:
experience, compassion, understanding, patience and selflessness.
Long hours and hard work
are secondary concerns when one is practicing "A Recipe for
Happiness." The staff is rewarded for their extra effort
by seeing the smiling faces at dinner and knowing everybody is
safely tucked in at bedtime.
Everyone has special needs.
It might be a second bowl of ice cream or some help getting the
day started. To meet these needs, Harris Health Centers maintains
a very high staff to a resident ratio. This means more attention
to the details that sometimes get overlooked in a larger setting.
It also means simply more time and attention to each individual.
Including the staff. Mr. Harris has regular reviews with his staff
to make sure they are taken care of - so they can respond to the
residents' needs with loving care.
