COMMUNITY OF CARE
Luther Court Society provides care and service in a socially based community of care which differs from the more traditional medically based model. Although there is ready access to best practice in medical knowledge and nursing care, the first and primary focus is that Luther Court is the person’s home.
Luther Court Aspirations
Everyone has a Place at the Table
Whoever you are and wherever you are in your life, you are welcome at this table. This is a table for building friendships, a place to feel valued and included. This is a table where you matter, where you make a difference.
At Luther Court we live into our aspirations by:
Caring with Heart
In this place you will experience compassionate care in a caring community. Whether you attend the Community Health Centre or make this your home, you will find skilled and caring professionals and a community committed to your wellbeing.
Everyone who receives our services is valued and respected for who they are. The care providers at Luther Court honour the rich diversity of people who come to us for support in meeting their unique physical, emotional, social, psychological and spiritual health needs.
Life Affirming Sanctuary
This sanctuary provides a safe environment which affirms and nurtures life. This is a place where you can find meaning, purpose, acceptance and supportive relationships. Here your contributions to the life and wellbeing of the community are welcomed.
We are committed to life together by learning from each other, being challenged by one another and treating each other with compassion and respect even when there are differing viewpoints. All who participate in the life and services of this community help us to thrive. We are inspired by the wisdom and curiosity of the many generations involved in the life of Luther Court.
At Luther Court individuals participate in all the day-to-day activities that are essential for life and also those pursuits which impart particular meaning and purpose for the person. To accomplish the goal of living out the Luther Court Model of Care, we are intentional about fostering a strong sense of community demonstrated in a transparent fashion by providing a physical environment and a culture that speaks and feels like “home”.
We work together as an inter-disciplinary team, each bringing their skills and gifts to the forefront in service of the whole community. We work to ensure that families feel that they are an integral part of the community, creating a place where people are encouraged to be fully themselves, where friendships and inter-personal connection can flourish in a climate of compassion, dignity and respect for all regardless of their circumstances. We are excited about this model of care and are happy to talk with you about it.
