Our philosophy honors that
of God within. In doing so, Quaker Heights is a
place where love is made visible by service.
Mission: Quaker Heights Care Community is
a ministry of the Ohio Valley Yearly Meeting of Quakers and was
formed to help elders and chronically ill persons optimize their
overall life quality by attending to their physical, emotional,
spiritual and social needs. We care for residents, their friends,
families and each other with honor, respect, reverence, and love
based on the Quaker values of integrity, equality, harmony and
Values: Quakers believe there is
an" inner light" or "that of God" in all persons. Just as they seek
to nurture and grow this divine light in themselves, they also seek
that light in others. By striving to understand and live the values
of equality, integrity, simplicity, and harmony, Quakers align the
inward journey of faith with outward action.
Equality--Respect and Dignity
"Seeking the light within" requires that all are treated with
respect and dignity. The Golden Rule says treat others as you wish
to be treated. In our desire to be inclusive and not make
assumptions, we do our best to treat others as they wish to be
treated. We celebrate and value the diversity of our community. We
resist programs based on artificial distinctions such as race,
class, physical abilities, and wealth. We believe in
the concept of a "single human family" whose members are
equally important and equally connected.
We respect independence and autonomy. Residents are free to
make choices on their daily care and dining schedules, as well as
their other needs and interests. We believe all people have
strengths and capabilities and are commited to person-centered
Simplicity-The Human Family
We honor the divine in others through honest interactions. We take
time to listen and understand in order to build "family" with our
residents, their family and friends and each other.
Our programs are designed to develop feelings of harmony and
kinship. Cultivating goodwill and understanding help create an
environment in which all persons have an opportunity to learn and
grow, where the skills and unique experiences of each
person brings added life to the community.
