Core Needs - The pathway to happiness

Understanding your core needs allows us to know the pathway we must take to make you happy.

We have identified three specific Core Needs that must be met to enrich happiness —

Basic Needs

You need to consistently receive services in an environment that feels like home.

Care Needs

You need to consistently receive the care that your personal health situation requires.

Unrecognized Needs

You need to consistently experience small, but unforgettable moments that you'd never think to ask for.
