When I introduce United Home Care, I tell people we do the same thing any other Medicare certified home health agency does, only better!
As United Home Care approached its 20th anniversary, I recognized a need for our company to have a clearer vision of what we value most about our work and how we work, in spirit and in action. I felt that our values, when more clearly expressed, would equip us with a better understanding and commitment that would, in turn, impact our daily work.
Since 1992, we have helped people at home by following important, but unspoken, principles. I felt it was time to highlight those principles so that we, as a company, would have a clearer view about what we stand for in our work environment.
What does United Home Care stand for? What does the company believe in? What are our values? What is our culture that makes United Home Care such a distinguished/reputable company?
In answering those questions, we defined TEAM UNITED!
TEAM UNITED expresses what is imperative to our work as health care professionals.
TEAM UNITED is our philosophy: a set of guidelines and beliefs developed by the current generation of United Home Care professionals, to be passed down to colleagues who will carry on this initiative into the future. Our goal is for TEAM UNITED to become a lasting legacy, rooted in the ultimate standards of excellence, integrity, and compassion.
I believe at the heart of United Home Care are professionals that are attentive, caring, and happy in their work and who consistently demonstrate compassion, integrity, and reliability. At the heart of our company are devoted professionals who go the "second mile" by always putting their patients' needs first. At the heart of our work are people who genuinely care and demonstrate that by taking time to listen, making connections, and developing relationships with patients and colleagues. And, perhaps most importantly, at the heart of United Home Care are people who exhibit the heart of our company through their love of others.
TEAM UNITED is the beacon of light that shines within all of us -- a spirit that connects us to one another with a greater purpose -- a purpose bigger than ourselves. This purpose brings meaning to our lives and to our work, thus uniting us with an even stronger commitment for providing support and care to people in need.
As powerful as our commitment is to helping others, we see it as more than a commitment, it's our calling!
Thank you for joining me in celebrating TEAM UNITED!
