Veritas is committed to transforming Senior Living so that future generations, including those with limited means, have options not only to live, but to thrive as they age. We will never be content to accept the norm. Instead, we will leverage technology, harness ingenuity, and use our genuine passion to successfully create a new and better standard of Senior Living that focuses on health, comfort, engagement, and dignity of each associate and every resident that we are honored to serve.
The Veritas leadership team will demonstrate a steadfast commitment to modeling servant leadership. In turn, we will attract superior team members who have a passion for serving others. Ultimately, Veritas will succeed when we assist our associates in reaching their personal and professional goals.
PEOPLE ALWAYS COME FIRST!
Values and Core Beliefs
The term “Veritas” is derived from the Latin word for truth. At Veritas our pledge is to be honest, transparent, and forthright. If a concern arises or a problem occurs, we will genuinely strive to make things right.
A morally good character.
“I hope I shall possess firmness and virtue enough to maintain what I consider the most enviable of all titles, the character of an honest man.”
– George Washington
Doing everything to the highest possible standard of excellence.
“Excellence is an art won by training and habituation…We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.”
A healthy reverence and respect for our elders.
“Stand up in the presence of the aged, show respect for the elderly…”
– Leviticus 19:32
The relentless pursuit of continuous improvement and the leveraging of technology.
“Vulnerability is the birthplace of innovation, creativity and change”
– Brene’ Brown
Able to be relied upon to do what is needed and right.
“Whoever is careless with the truth in small matters cannot be trusted with important matters.”
– Albert Einstein
Behavior that demonstrates a desire to help others without thought to what it will cost you personally.
“Every man must decide whether he will walk in the light of creative altruism or in the darkness of destructive selfishness.”
– Martin Luther King
Contribution to the welfare and well-being of others.
“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.”
– Mahatma Gandhi
The Wellness Philosophy at Veritas extends beyond residents and also pertains to team members. Many Senior Living organizations focus solely on the residents. However, Veritas firmly believes that in order for the organization to thrive and succeed both groups need to have opportunities to fulfill the eight dimensions of wellness. While the needs of the two groups are distinctly different, both are equal in their importance to us. We believe there is a direct correlation, and that satisfied and engaged associates in turn create happy and fulfilled residents.
Our Wellness Philosophy is also our pledge to serve the full range of wellness needs for our Team Members, Residents and Families:
We will honor God through exceptional service. We will respect the beliefs of each associate and resident, and unite in the common goal of high quality and compassionate care.
We will encourage and provide opportunities for our associates and residents to learn and grow intellectually.
We will support each other, as well as our residents and their families; aging and caregiving are both components of an emotional journey to be shared.
We will provide nutritious meals and assist our residents and associates in maintaining healthy and active lifestyles.
We will strive to build genuine relationships between and among our residents, families and teammates.
We will make a concerted effort to promote from within and provide growth opportunities for associates, as well as a sense of purpose among all parties.
For our associates we will pay fair wages, along with a commitment to provide financial rewards for hard work and exceptional care. For our residents, we pledge fiscal responsibility to assure minimal cost.
We will provide a safe and pleasant environment in which all stakeholders and residents can work, live and thrive.
