Dignity is one of the cornerstones of the AlfredHouse philosophy. I learned at an early age from my grandmother who cared for the most vulnerable and frail in our community to always protect the dignity of the elderly.
Act with gentleness by leaning in to listen, speak slowly and touch softly.
At AlfredHouse we also take extra time to clean and protect the skin. With slow gentle strokes we massage the skin with olive oil, creams, and baby oil to keep the skin hydrated and supple while the spirit is calmed.
With constant attention, each resident feels comfort, dignity and peacefulness. Each is cared for and and each is loved.
