The Golden Rule of Caring

Posted on June 24, 2020 at 11:55 PM
The Golden Rule of Caring As a child, you may have heard of the Golden Rule. The idea is to treat others as you wanted to be treated. If you want respect, treat others with respect. If you would like kindness, share kindness with others. As we get older, that rule doesn't become any less important. In fact, you could argue it is more vital than ever, especially when it comes to giving care to those with health needs. At Home Insite, we take great pride in applying the Golden Rule in our caregiving. What does that look like? What can someone expect when they hire a caregiver who truly cares about the Golden Rule? Keep reading to find out. A Focus on Understanding Some caregivers come into a situation with their own ideas about what's necessary. We, however, focus on trying to fully understand the needs of the person before we create our plan. Perhaps someone needs rides to the grocery store, and they usually go on Wednesday. We will do everything we can to honor that schedule. We also assess someone's abilities and find out about their home situation and medications so we can help them stay on track. We offer a variety of help, depending on the needs of your loved one. Whether they want assistance with meals, housekeeping, monitoring medication, bathing, errands, or even just companionship, we are there to serve. We value the bonds we create with clients and always think about what would be important if we were in their shoes. The Highest Level of Care Being focused on the Golden Rule means we treat your family member as if they were in our own family. You can trust your loved one will receive the highest level of care and compassion. It doesn't stop at what we provide, either. It is essential to be connected to a variety of resources when your loved one needs care. Many of these are available at no cost. We will help you find and engage these resources so that you can have complete peace of mind. Taking care of a loved one is hard. If you simply need respite care while you take a break for a day or two, we can help with that as well. Choose Home Insite For High-Quality, Compassionate In-Home Care You have a lot of options for in-home care, but not all of them are focused on understanding and compassion. Because the Golden Rule guides us, our thoughts are always on treating your loved one the way we would want our own family treated. We know how important it is for your family members to live safely at home. Home is familiar and peaceful, and in-home care is much more cost-effective than other housing choices. We know how to keep the vision of living at home alive, even while your loved one receives the necessary care. We make it easy to enroll in our services and accept a variety of insurance and payment options. We will work with you to determine a fair price and help you explore the services that can provide assistance. If you are ready to find out how your loved one can benefit from Golden Rule care, contact us today.

Beyond Us

Posted on December 3, 2019 at 2:45 PM

I know I have not written anything in awhile but in the concourse of it all is that it is beyond us. What do I mean by beyond us? This is something in the accounting and finance realm and plenty of other industries that professionals do not like to hear. Why is that? No matter how much the analysis goes and no matter how much predictability goes into something that there will still be the factor that is beyond us. Why do most human beings think that they can always predict the future? Does this mean that we are all psychic or have super powers. I believe that this lies in the context of just not knowing. Unfortunately, with just not knowing comes many scary thoughts and anxiety. So the thought of not knowing something is beyond us. So why is this important to understand that this world is beyond us and in the business realm as well.

According to:

Isaiah 55:8-9

"For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways," declares the LORD. "For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways And My thoughts than your thoughts.

I believe if more businesses and practices would incorporate the idea that faith plays into part of their analysis and predictability that God would bless those organizations with or without any financial or buisiness alaytics regardless of the circumstances. That is why we walk by faith and not by sight. It is beyond us and we need to make sure that we understand this principle for what is in our control and what is not in our control. What is in our control is the choice to do something for the right reason and watch how God control's the rest. Do your best and leave the rest up to God. 


Employees are Everything

Posted on February 21, 2018 at 1:50 PM

I know employee appreciation day is not today but we are appreciative everyday for our employees. 

You know, one of the many things that most employers seem to not understand is that their employees are people as well. They have lives outside of work and they have feelings, ideas, commitments, and can literally be a great asset and tool to any organization if given the chance. Sometimes folks are passed along because they don't have a degree or experience and are automatically discounted right away. Sometimes those chances are never taken and therefore an organization passes up on some very useful and great people that can make a change and difference if given a shot. They just need that boost and direction.


Sometimes as professionals, administrators, and/or managers can be so strapped with so many tasks throughout the day to even notice and maybe its done intentionally, maybe not. When I often think back about the times that I would have to lift boxes, work on docks, clean toilets, change trash cans, and do it to the best of my abilities that it would have just been nice to have someone ackowledge that and just say "good job" and just get to know me a little better. Instead I was always passed by and ignored and sometimes the politics had alot to do with that. Making sure everyone always got theirs instead of helping to train, direct, and build someone to a higher calibur regardless of who it was and just taking that time out to say thanks or get to know you. Sometimes employers  fail to manage and support those folks on the bottom because they are constantly always worried about the bottom line and then think why they have such a huge turnover rate. If you tend to put employees first then money will seem to come and you can reinvest back into those employees to make a great and long last organization and community for all.


I remember specifically how my mother came home stating, "I can do a better job than half these people and they won't give me a shot." Sometimes folks don't have the capabilities of even gaining a shot and they just need someone to believe in them even when they don't beleive in themselves. So you start to believe everyone else's opinions, thoughts, and ideas about you stating that you have to stay at the bottom and you won't ever get up. What the problem with this thinking is that it is believeing other people's thoughts of you and not you believing in you. Because if you live to the confines of other people's thoughts and opinions then you will surely miss out on your calling and purpose. 


That is why at Home Insite our employees our everything. They have made this organization to what it is today from the bottom to the top and we thank and praise the Lord everyday for that. We appreciate the willingness, comittment, and the struggles that have been endured in the process. We want to take the phrase my mother always said "I can do a better job than half these people and they won't give me a shot." to "They gave me a shot and now I am a better person because of it."  We will continue to serve the Lord this way through honoring our employees in everyway as possible through training, schooling, and providing direction to generate an overall better community because of investing in those folks that normally would have been passed up just like me.


As the Bible clearly states it in Colossians 3:23 ESV

"Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men." 


God Bless and Happy Employee Appreciation Day, EVERYDAY!
