I, ME vs. Us, WE • When a caregiver/staff comes into work with an I, ME mindset they think more about themselves and their own lives. • I, ME attitude exuded from caregiver/staff puts the residents in second place. • Us, WE is an attitude that while I am at work in someone’s HOME my attention is directed to their needs 100%. • Us, WE is a fundamental principlefundamental principle.
  7. 7. Why TEAMWORK wins • Abe Lincoln said, “A house divided against itself can not stand.” • Division amongst caregivers / staff yields unhappiness. • Bring disagreeable situations, fellow employee misunderstandings along with solution suggestions to correct what you perceive as a problem to the attention of managers, not to other staff, especially not in the HOME ENVIRONMENT. Keep developing the ability to refocus on positive actions for the benefit of our beloved residents. • Everyone needs a compliment so be generous and give them out with a friendly smile.
  8. 8. WHY Teamwork makes us strong • Just as easy as it is to complain without offering a solution, the result is still no work gets done and the residents suffer. • When staff work together and solve issues before division can take root, the TEAM WINS and the results motivate everyone. • The foundational principlefoundational principle is we must all work for the same result…happy clients.

Anyone got a Tic-Tac • When breath is “less-than-fresh” or smells bad, do you act right away to correct it? • If staff members have smelly breath, a fundamental principlefundamental principle is to correct it. • Because we interact so closely with our clients, being in the habit of excellent hygiene (body and breath odors) must be a daily priority to ensure good relations. • Poor hygiene can have negative impact on our prospective clients raising questions about what care they can expect from us.
