Mission Statement

At Looten Healthcare Ltd, we promote the dignity and self-worth of all of our residents, and strive to give them excellent quality of life, as defined by the residents, individually and as a group. To that end, we encourage resident group decision-making through finding out what they need and want in regards to access to all areas of their homes and self-determination in activities, socialization, and food preferences. Looten Healthcare Ltd is not just a caregiving company—we make it their home, and their community. We also value the time, skills, and expert opinions of our staff. We are committed to providing good care and safe care. Our staff has clear duties and spheres of rights and responsibilities for each team member. We do not expect staff to do work for which they are not trained; we do expect them to share their suggestions for improving any aspect of Looten Healthcare Ltd working operations or caregiving. We aim to provide jobs which not only provide sustenance for our workers’ families, but also allow them a space to make a difference in the world around them, through caring and expert assistance to our community’s most vulnerable members.
