The values of the Véro & Louis Foundation and Homes

The values of the Véro & Louis Foundation are integral to its culture and purpose. They can be summarized in one fundamental principle: respect for difference, which is the basis of our attitudes, conduct and actions. This means offering our residents, their families and our employees the best possible conditions to enhance their well-being and quality of life.


These four values are also central at Véro & Louis Homes. Certain values underlie our respect for difference:


    Each resident and their family members are treated with compassion at all times, which is integral to the approach of our services.


    Every resident is a human being like anyone else with the right to dignity. It’s important to respect their choices, forms of expression, reactions, interiority, and physical, moral and spiritual integrity.


    Ethics are top of mind for all employees, volunteers and other staff members at the Véro & Louis Home in all parts of their work with residents.


    Solidarity between all team members at the Home is foundational to the assistance they provide our residents.
