Code of Ethics
Providers that have adopted the LeadingAge Minnesota Housing-with-Services Code of Ethics strive to create a culture of mutual respect, understanding and trust with the people they serve and those who support them.
They pledge and commit to:
- Fairness, honesty, and confidentiality.
- Open communication and encouragement of self-expression in order to continually improve our services.
- Nurture choice through disclosure of vital information to enable the people we serve to make informed decisions about the level of care - and corresponding level of risk - they desire.
In addition, the Code of Ethics commitment is to:
- Develop a well-trained, competent staff and prudently manage (name of organization)'s resources to provide quality housing and services and to comply with applicable laws and regulations.
- Provide innovative and supportive housing in a well-maintained setting that reflects the values of our community.
- Help the people we serve to obtain services to maximize their desired level of independence, autonomy and dignity.
- Identify internal as well as community resources to assist them with life's transitions.
