Human Rights

Stanton Home believes in honoring the rights and dignity of all people, especially those in our care. Our goal is to protect and advocate for the human rights of all who live and work at Stanton Home.

We provide training, resources, and support to the individuals we serve to inform them about and enable them to actively exercise their human rights. In addition, all our staff and volunteers are trained in Human Rights to be knowledgeable and conversant about this topic which is essential to life here.

Human Rights are a two-sided coin, on one side, we feel empowered when our rights are honored, we feel dignified when we are treated with respect. On the other side is responsibility, our responsibility to honor and respect the rights and dignity of others.

The Stanton Home Human Rights Committee provides oversight and training to ensure that the rights and freedoms of the individuals we support are completely respected. The Committee is comprised of a social worker, attorney, nurse, occupational therapist, local citizens and family members. We strive to ensure our residents understand and actively exercise their human rights. In addition we provide training for all our staff, both paid and unpaid, in protecting and advocating for the human rights of our residents and all who live and work at Stanton Home.
