We strive to provide the individuals who live in our communities, an environment that nurtures personal relationships, and values the unique contributions of each community member. Each home is as unique as the services they offer.
What are you going to have for dinner tonight? Are you going to exercise or watch TV afterwards? How about tomorrow, do you have any specific plans? Regardless of the answers to these questions, one thing remains constant: the choice is yours.
Contrary to the traditional medical model where individuals are treated solely based on their diagnosis and medical needs, Person Directed Care is a commitment to the respect and accommodation of individual routines, meals, activities, even the preferred room settings, of each community member. ABCM is making huge strides in providing Person Directed Care by changing our reliance on set procedures and limited choices.
Person Directed Care is about changing the entire culture of a community by empowering our residents and caregivers (family members and staff) to have input in decisions that impact everyone involved. We create an environment where daily routines and habits are not only allowed, but encouraged and accommodated. The individuals who live in our communities become family, with a sense of security and belonging.
The Person Directed Care initiative is to continually strive to create an environment that affirms the dignity and value of each individual who lives and works within this unique culture. While most organizations operate from the top down, ABCM Corporation has created a work environment where staff at all levels is encouraged to provide input into procedures and policies that affect the entire community culture.
Person Directed Care is an ongoing process with exciting opportunities for our community members and caregivers to improve quality of care and quality of life.
ABCM Corporation welcomes you to join us on our journey to enrich the lives of others. Stop by one of our communities, volunteer, come along on an outing, or join us at one of our numerous community events. You'll witness the ABCM difference in everything we do.
