Safe Care Begins with You in 2022

After over two years of COVID-19, we invite you to join us in the latest Safe Care Living the Pledge activity, called “Living the Pledge Every Day.” In a few weeks, we will share easy-to-use tools and resources to refocus on the key components of the Safe Care Pledge through monthly activities that you can bring to your community. They will help your organization celebrate and renew your commitment to respect, dignity, safety, and quality of life for those we serve.

Safe Care Pledge

I pledge to do my best every day to increase the safety of the people I serve and my fellow team members by: 1) I will always treat the people in my care with respect and dignity and take steps to get to know them as a person; and 2) I will speak up if I see something that may be unsafe or makes me feel uncomfortable.

Calling All Safe Care Champions

If you are a Safe Care organization, to receive the latest news and resources, please make sure that our team has the name of your Safe Care Champions by using this form.

If your organization is new to Safe Care, we invite you to identify a Safe Care Champion for your community by using this form. We will help them get training and tools to get started.

More than 450 member sites have committed to Safe Care since 2019. It is a comprehensive approach that provides the structure and support for individuals and organizations to keep those they serve safe from harm and to provide care with respect and dignity always. This starts with an individual pledge, followed by organizations pledging their commitment to implement actions within their organizations with support from LeadingAge Minnesota and shared learning with peers. 

Look for more details about the “Living the Pledge Every Day” resources and activities in future newsletters. For more information, please contact Julie Apold.
