Our Independent Living Philosophy
With us, you’re home
You should never compromise when it comes to decisions that affect your day-to-day life. Here at OSH, we focus on providing the care you want and the freedom you deserve. So that with OSH, you truly feel like you’re home.
Our corporate mission is to promote choice, control and dignity for our care recipients. We believe that all individuals have the right to:
- Make decisions about their own lives
- Be active in their communities
- Actively choose their home care services
- Live with dignity
- Get the support they need at home
- Make ongoing choices while controlling their home care services
- Expect equal access to social, economic and political opportunities
Here’s how we put our philosophy into action:
Truly independent living
Your home care is both critical and personal, so you deserve to work with people who are directly involved with that care. At OSH, you’ll never speak to a call center or hotline. You’ll speak to real people in your local office who understand your needs and how to help. We’re comprised of a network of local offices backed by a corporate organization. That means a personal and caring experience for you, but also one that is courteous, professional and as easy as possible for you and your family.
The right people
Without compassionate, skilled caregivers, our independent living philosophy rings hollow. Our rigorous screening process helps us identify only the best home caregivers. Plus, our comprehensive hiring, orientation and training programs to ensure OSH caregivers are truly the best individuals to care for your needs.
That’s right — the most important person in the process of planning for your home care is YOU. You will be involved in every step of the planning: from deciding which services are needed to providing ongoing guidance and feedback as we help care for your needs or the needs of your family member, your choices are the most critical.
