Vinge recognizes that everyone is different and can excel in a variety of ways. A person-centred approach allows staff and persons in care to work together to achieve specific daily, monthly and annual goals.
Vinge will:

  • Encourage and provide choices to persons in care;
  • Accept and consider risk when making choices;
  • Cater to the persons in care’s specific dietary needs;
  • Develop specific day programs around likes and dislikes;
  • Understand abilities and work with consultants to support the personal progress of persons in care;
  • Communicate and report daily with persons in care, families, consultants, co-employees and management to monitor progress; and
  • Set up and measure specific goals.

A person-centred approach will continue to put the person in care first and make sure that their needs are being met. The persons in care, along with their support teams, are encouraged to share ideas and recommendations at any time to the Program Coordinators or the Director of Community Living Services. Vinge will seek to provide accommodations regarding any barriers that may be present, including but not limited to accessibility, financial and communication barriers. All resources are tailored specifically to each person in care.
