A Philosophy of Care and a Spirit of Empowerment

At Deer Lake Manor, it is our goal to provide the highest quality of life possible for our residents. As professionals, experience has taught us that quality of life is much more than a pleasant environment, security, and care or help with daily activities.

Quality of life necessitates meaningful or purposeful activity, a daily structure, optimal independence and function, dignity through a positive sense of self, physical comfort, peace of mind, spiritual fellowship, and a sense of belonging, compatible companionship, enjoyable activities, healthy diversions, humor, and love.

We strive to insure that each of our residents has an opportunity to have each of those needs met every day. Central to our philosophy of quality care is the belief that we must focus each day on a spirit of empowerment, purpose and joy; there can be no quality of care without that belief.
