Deer Lodge Centre Model of Client Centred Caring
All DLC staff and departments work together with the client and family along the health continuum.
Staff provide core value care regardless of the clinical picture and look for opportunities to nurture potential, explore what is possible and deliver compassion; whether our clients and families are with us for a short time, a long time or if they are entering a period of needing end of life care.
