Our mission and vision
It is the mission of The Woodleigh to maintain the highest standards of long-term care with a focus on improving the quality of life for our residents.
Our priority is to provide state-of-the-art and compassionate in-home care from highly-trained medical professionals and aides. To make good on this promise, proper training is paramount. Not only do we hire the most experienced personnel, but we provide them with in-depth disease-specific training so that they can deliver specialized care to our clients.
We are also committed to providing 24-hour nursing care with dignity, understanding, respect, and safety. Furthermore, we are dedicated to providing a compassionate, caring and friendly environment that promotes our neighborhood values.
We provide everyone we support with the opportunity to continue to live life to the fullest. We actively encourage residents to become more self-reliant, to make decisions for themselves, and ultimately, to move on to more independent living arrangements when appropriate.
We facilitate and support our residents to pursue meaningful and personalized lifestyles. We provide individually planned education & leisure opportunities to support each individual in their ongoing development.
