These values guide our actions:

Dignity – We acknowledge each client’s inherent nobility and worth, even while assisting with activities of daily living and conduct ourselves ethically and with a commitment to personal integrity.
Stimulate – We invigorate Rouse to activity — physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
