Our Values

We are dedicated to culture change by enhancing the way care and services are delivered to older adults throughout Oregon. Our goal is for all people to live in communities where each person’s capabilities and individuality are affirmed and developed regardless of setting.

MOVE is committed to the values adopted by the Pioneer Network:

  • Know each person
  • Each person can and does make a difference
  • Relationship is the fundamental building block of transformed culture
  • Respond to spirit, as well as mind and body
  • Risk taking is a normal part of life
  • Put person before task
  • All people are entitled to self-determination wherever they live
  • Community is the antidote to institutionalization
  • Do unto others as you would have them do unto you
  • Promote the growth and development of all
  • Shape and use the potential of the environment in all aspects: physical, organizational, and psycho-social/spiritual
  • Practice self-examination, searching for new creativity and opportunities for doing better
  • Recognize that culture change and transformation are not a destination but a journey; always works-in-progress
