As I approach the grand launching of my new business I realized that the company needed a clearer expression of what is most important about the work we do and the way we should work, in spirit and in action. I felt that our values, when more clearly expressed, would provide us with a powerful but shared understanding and commitment to guide our daily work.
Since 1992, I have helped people aged at home and succeeded by following important, but unspoken, principles. I felt it was time to gather all those experiences together so that I as a Care giver could be clearer about what I stand for in my business and my work.
I searched for a way to find and express what is most important. I read about how other successful organizations addressed this need. I spoke with many people within and outside our company, and I thought about the matter a great deal. Work with me to find the answers to some important questions:
- What do we stand for?
- What does the company believe in? What are our values?
- What are the special ingredients/facts that make Care For U Home, Inc. such a special but unique organization?
In answering those questions, we have defined Care For U Home, Inc.
Care For U Home, Inc. expresses what is most critical to our work as home health care professionals. This is our philosophy that a set of caregiving beliefs articulated by the current generation of our home health care professionals, to be passed down to colleagues who carry on this important work in the future.

Caregiving is a light that shines within each one of us — a spirit that connects us to each other, a spirit bigger than ourselves. This spirit brings meaning to our lives and to our work; it brings us together for the higher purpose of providing support and care to people in need.
