We at Home Instead believe that our jobs play important roles in the lives of older adults, but we also strive to fulfill a higher purpose.
Here, our Core Purpose is "to teach others about Love (v)," and it is inherent in everything we do, both at our place of work and within the marketplace.
What is Love (v)? God showed the world the true meaning of love when He sent his Son. When we view love in that context, love is more than a feeling. We believe that love is a verb, and, in that form, it is more powerful, influential and impactful.
When we lovingly speak and act, we can impact the lives of our senior clients and their families, as well as make our communities better places. As we outwardly show love, we also have an opportunity to testify to the ends of the earth.
Attributes of Love (v)
So how do we show love? Borrowing from 1 Corinthians 13, we created eight Attributes that help guide how we serve each other and our clients at Home Instead.
We aim to demonstrate the true spirit and meaning of Love (v) by incorporating these Attributes into our daily interactions, from the office to the home:
Patience, Kindness, Humility, Selflessness, Respectfulness, Forgiveness, Honesty, Commitment
Our eight Attributes also guide CAREGiver behaviors when they visit your older loved one's home. In addition to delivering quality care, you can rest assured knowing that your in-home CAREGiver will treat your loved one with Love (v). In fact, we monthly and annually recognize CAREGivers for demonstrating Love (v) in their clients' lives.
