Why Ethics Matter
Updated: Jun 13, 2019
Beginning of life and end-of-life are the times when we are most vulnerable. In both of these stages, special care must be conscientiously and deliberately provided. But too many times in recent years, it hasn’t been. Those in our world that show no regard and outright take advantage of our vulnerable are candidly reprehensible.
June 15 is World Elder Abuse Awareness Day, bringing light to the darkness of abuse, neglect and exploitation that affects one in ten older adults. You can learn more about this campaign by visiting their website at https://eldermistreatment.usc.edu/weaad-home/.
Caring With Grace believes that ethics play a crucial role in guiding our actions, both as a business and as care managers. Our Mission: At Caring With Grace, we provide compassionate and comprehensive individualized care for our clients and their families. Our goal as care manager is to inform and guide those we serve in order to ease the burdens and challenges of aging or disability.
Arguably, a company’s ethics matter more in today’s world than ever. Caring With Grace adopted and adheres to the Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics implemented by The Aging Life Care® Association. This is a lengthy document, but we encourage you to read on to better understand what we, as care managers, believe.
