Agency Philosophy

We believe that health care is a basic human right. It must be accessible, provided and coordinated with other human services when appropriate. Home health care is an important part of the continuous health care system and will be provided in the most cost effective manner.

Forum Health Care shall operate and furnish services in compliance with all applicable federal, state, and local laws and regulations. To the best of our knowledge, based on our Quality Improvement Program and professional personnel practices, the services we provide comply with acceptable professional standards and principles.

The agency’s philosophy is guided by the following principles:

  • Home Health Care is designed to meet the unique needs of clients and families
  • Services are tailored to assist individuals and families to achieve optimal level of function
  • Care is based on respect for the dignity and worth of each individual
  • Services will be provided in the least restrictive setting
  • Patient and families are active participants in the care planning process
