Mission and Values
We envision a community that is fully supported to navigate through our shared journeys of aging, chronic illness and end-of-life.
We seek to enhance end-of-life and palliative care, and expand services to our aging population in Cook County through a collaborative and community-based approach.
We respect the integrity of each person we encounter, their choices, needs and abilities; we meet them where they are.
We are client-centered and our focus includes the client’s family and caregivers.
We consider the needs of the whole person.
We applaud the health care and elder service providers in Cook County and support their efforts through collaboration, providing complementary services, and offering education.
We hold confidentiality of any client information as paramount.
We respect the boundaries of our clients, ourselves, and each person we encounter.
