Welcome to the Louis Brier Home & Hospital
Our mission at the Louis Brier Home & Hospital is to provide exemplary care to you and your family within a supportive and caring community, consistent with Jewish values and traditions. As innovative leaders in eldercare, our vision is to enrich the quality of life of Jewish seniors in everything we do.
Our values are encapsulated in the word CHAI – Hebrew for “Life”
We tailor our approach to meet your unique needs in consultation with both you and your family, and we treat everyone with compassion and respect. We value the cultural and ethnic differences people bring to the residence, and we provide opportunities for our staff, volunteers and companions to develop their knowledge and abilities.
Health and Safety
The ensured health and safety of our residents, employees and everyone who uses the residence is of paramount importance. We strive to create a positive work environment, free from harassment or bullying, and we share the responsibility for injury prevention with our employees and contractors.
We are effective stewards of public and donated resources. We measure the impact of our work and report regularly to our residents, families, directors and funders. We constantly strive to improve our performance through both innovation and research-based best practices.
We value every resident’s right to be involved in decisions about their care, and we value families’ participation in decisions affecting their loved ones. We communicate openly and constructively and deal with difficult issues in a timely and ethical manner.
MISSION, VISION & VALUES
Our Mission, Vision and Values were reviewed and updated in 2019, along with our Strategic Plan, to reflect the current healthcare environment, the continued emphasis on the organization’s denominational context, and the focus on quality care, health and safety of our residents, staff, and stakeholders.
Acknowledgement and recognition of the value and contribution of our donors and foundation was added to emphasize the strong relationship and collaboration that supports all facets of the organization.LB-MVV-May2019-MVV
STRATEGIC PLAN (2019 – 2023)
Louis Brier Home and Hospital & Weinberg Residence started the process of creating a new strategic plan for the organization in fall 2018. We obtained the services of a consultant who specialized in this field, to assist us with drafting this new plan. To ensure that we were successful in creating a meaningful and sustainable strategic plan, we felt that it was important that we listen to and consider the feedback provided to us by others, including our residents, families, employees and our key external stakeholders and partners.
Interviews were conducted with a considerable number of internal and external stakeholders to gather their input and feedback on Louis Brier as an organization and how it can function as a partner with others in the community to better suit the needs of our residents and families.
In November 2018 the Senior Leadership Team partnered with the Board of Directors of Louis Brier to undergo an intense two day planning session to develop the new strategic plan for the organization, which they were successful in completing. On May 23, 2019, the Senior Leadership Team announced the newly revised Strategic Plan for Louis Brier Home & Hospital and Weinberg Residence to its employees.LB-MVV-May2019-SD
