Our Philosophy

Nationwide Home Healthcare Inc. subscribes to the concept of health as stated by the World Health Organization. Health is a state of maximal physical, mental, and social well being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. The enjoyment of the highest attainable standard of health is one of the fundamental rights of every human being without distinction of race, religion, political belief, economic, or social condition. To that end, the personnel of Nationwide Home Healthcare Inc. are committed to providing high quality health care and to promote maximum physical, mental, and social conditions in the client/patient and family.

We believe in accountability to the client/patient, family and to the community to assist them to improve their ability for self-care and thereby live more effectively with themselves and others.

We also respect the autonomy of the client/patient and family to make decisions affecting their present and future health status. We are committed to making services available to all persons within our service area. We utilize the interdisciplinary approach in providing services and work cooperatively with other community organizations and groups to provide comprehensive care.

We believe it is Nationwide’s Home Healthcare Inc. responsibility to employ and treat persons without regard to race, creed, sex, sexual preference, age, color, religion, physical handicap or national origin. Nationwide Home Healthcare Inc. has the responsibility of employing and retaining a staff, which is current in its knowledge, application, and conceptualization of professional practice. We believe staff should be skilled in making professional judgments, in applying treatment modalities with individual client/patients and that the staff has primary responsibility to maintain and update their clinical knowledge.

We believe that it is necessary for all staff members, professional and non-professional, to support the philosophy of Nationwide Home Healthcare Inc. and that their practice reflects the philosophy. It is necessary that all staff work cooperatively to enhance the philosophy, goals and objectives of Nationwide Home Healthcare Inc.

We have a commitment to management practices, which facilitate open communication and allow participation in problems solving and program development and implementation. We continually seek new ways and means of being responsive to the ever-changing health needs in the community. We believe in the value of consumer participation in planning and implementation of service programs. As an adjunct to this concept, we believe that ongoing evaluation of Nationwide Home Healthcare Inc. is essential.
