Operations and Health Care
Our vision is to provide senior living options that provide individualized care plans. The goal is to help seniors remain as independent as possible. By individualizing care plans, we are able to provide services much more economically than bundled care plans. Residents pay for services they need, but never pay for a service they may not yet require.
We provide a warm, caring, family type atmosphere where each person is valued as an individual. Welcome Home Management applies the latest techniques and services to ensure the best care for the residents and the success of each community.
This kind of vision places the needs of our residents first, and the requirement to provide a healthy work environment for our staff.
During routine visits to each community, we take time to “walk the property” to make note of facility maintenance programs and to ensure that any issues that may come up are taken care of in a timely matter.
Whether it is a simple question or a more intricate one, our staff is available to on-site staff to assist them in their duties and responsibilities.

Welcome Home Management has extensive education programs that are available to team members. This includes new employee orientation, Director of Resident Services Training program; New RN Orientation program, and ongoing staff training including in-services.
Twice per year, Welcome Home Health Care hosts its own educational conferences, one in the winter and one in the summer. Our Winter Conference is a two-day educational series that is directed towards the management teams at each community. This program is designed to continually grow so that in years to come.
Like our winter conference, our Summer Workshop will offer many sessions and speakers to learn from. What’s different during the summer workshop? As the title suggests, this program will be centered on not just learning from invited speakers, but from each other as well. For this program to be successful, many speakers and sessions are focused on participation.
Throughout the year, we also host various workshops for department lead staff as well as monthly webcasts called Welcome Home LIVE where topics range from leadership to dealing with change to how to work with difficult employees. These programs have proved to be a very effective form of education for those who are looking to extend their knowledge base.
Our employees are trained to support the three key principles of assisted living: Offer choice, maintain dignity and promote individuality. In each senior living community, we offer residents choices in the services they receive by incorporating them and their family members in the process. Maintaining someone’s dignity is simple; Show respect, protect their privacy, and encourage independence. While resident’s have similar needs, each resident has his or her own likes and dislikes, routines, and lifestyles. Even when seniors live with others in a senior living community, they are individuals.
Welcome Home Health Care is the state licensed assisted living home care provider in all of its locations with well-trained, professional staff to care for our residents. Each staff member must attend an extensive orientation and training program with our Registered Nurse prior to working with our residents and their family members.
Each year, we require our team members to review policies and procedures to ensure the community is following rules and regulations set by each state that we operate in. On a regular basis, we visit our communities to host a “mock survey” which reviews resident files to ensure accuracy and follow through. Over the years, this process has helped staff be prepared and confident for the state survey process. We are active in each state’s advocacy groups which include: LeadingAge of Minnesota and the Wisconsin Assisted Living Association (WALA). By being active in these groups, we keep a pulse on rules and regulation changes before they affect each of the communities.
Additionally, we believe it is important to “take the pulse” for each of our senior living communities. The satisfaction of our residents, the quality of services that our residents receive, and the value of our community to the resident, are a critical link to the success of our organization. We value residents and family member’s comments and feedback. Called Resident Satisfaction Survey’s, they are designed to look at each department in the community and use the resident’s feedback as a way to improve their overall experience with the community.
