It’s an honor to be nominated and selected as one of the Star Tribune’s 2018’s Top Workplaces. What we do here is not easy but it is simple.
Our mission is to provide care of the highest professional quality designed to promote the mental and physical wellbeing, personal dignity, autonomy, and independence of our clients. From our Matrix home health clients to our Grace Homes residents we always recognize the inherent value and worth of every client.
We know that there are a number of needs which must be met to attain the highest quality of life. Over the course of a lifetime, one’s ability to independently meet these needs varies considerably.
Matrix Home Health Care Specialists exists to assist persons who are experiencing acute or chronic impairment in meeting their basic human needs.
In order to make all of this happen, it takes a great team. This is something we know the importance of and do not take for granted. We strive to employ highly qualified caregivers who work effectively on our team to bring exceptional care to each and every client.
Finding an employee can be a daunting task. Finding quality people who are patient, compassionate, attentive, dependable, and trustworthy adds another layer to the mix. People with these attributes are called caregivers and we think we have some of the best out there.
We truly understand our caregivers’ importance to our clients and our business. We wouldn’t be here without them.
You know the old saying actions speak louder than words? It is true and we don’t disagree but the reverse had an effect on us so much so that we thought we would share it.
We couldn’t be more humbled to learn our dedicated team of caregivers feels the same way we do about the importance of the clients and helping them live the best quality of life possible.
Their actions prove it with the care they give every day but seeing it in writing definitely sparked another level of appreciation on our part.
We receive the anonymous answers provided by our caregivers and office employees to the survey that the Star Tribune sends out.
