PHILOSOPHY OF CARE

The work principles of Merrie Loots Farm, its management and its staff are based on the values which exist in any community; a respect and freedom of the individual to pursue personal goals and interests, constrained only by the needs of living with others.

 Our philosophy at Merrie Loots Farm is to provide to our residents, who are in need of support due to age or illness, a standard of care that they would choose for themsleves.  This will be offered in a safe, caring, warm and homely environment in which the residents care and welbeing is of prime importance.  This will be planned and managed in such a way as to enable our residents to maintain their individuality, personal dignity and privacy; to exercise their personal preference and choice wherever possible; and to stimulate, promote and maintain their residual abilities.
