about us


our philosophy

" Buena Vista is dedicated to administering the highest quality of in-home care while encompassing all the needs of our patients and their families."

 
 


Here at Buena Vista, we believe and practice:

Team Approach

We support each other and the care facility staffs we work with while supporting our patients and their families. We believe that together we can make a difference in the lives of our patients and their families, one patient and one family at a time.

Integrity

We do what we say we will do, when we say we will do it. We are open and honest in our relationships with patients, families, facilities, vendors, and with each other. We have respect for ourselves and for others.

Emotional Intelligence

We strive to create a calm, peaceful environment for our patients even in difficult circumstances.

Energy

We are enthusiastic about our work and maintain a positive attitude. This helps create a more serene environment for our patients and their families and brings in a peaceful, energetic atmosphere.

Choice

We believe in the patient’s right to choose and to have some measure of control over their lives, even at the end.
