Based in Superior, Wisconsin, Encompass Healthcare & Assisted Living is a growing, family oriented and community-based company, striving to meet the needs of people with disabilities and special needs of all kinds. While we began 17 years ago as an adult foster care company for people with developmental disabilities, we have expanded to serve those with mental health issues and physical disabilities. Regardless of their needs, people are our focus.
Mission Statement - Encompass Healthcare & Assisted Living provides quality residential services to individuals with various conditions of advanced age, conditions of mental illness, and developmental disabilities. We seek to defend and promote the quality of life each individual we serve through encouraging physical, psychosocial, and spiritual growth while focusing on the unique capabilities of each person to meet their potential. In our efforts to meet and exceed the needs of our clients, we encourage and challenge our staff to grow to their greatest potential, and we collaborate with individuals, families, and agencies that support our clients. While Encompass Healthcare & Assisted Living is a non-denominational organization, we do share a philosophy expressed by Pope John Paul II:
"The Dignity of Disabled Persons"
In spite of the limitations and sufferings affecting their bodies and faculties, [people with disabilities] point up more clearly the greatness and dignity of man...They should be helped to participate in the life of society in all its aspects and at all levels accessible to their capacities.
The disabled person is one of us and participates fully in the same humanity that we possess. It would be radically unworthy of man and a denial of our common humanity, to admit to the life of the community, and thus to work, only those who are fully functional. To do so would be to practice a serious form of discrimination, that of the strong and healthy against the weak and sick...
The various bodies involved in the world of labor, both the direct and indirect employer, should therefore by means of effective and appropriate measures foster the right of the disabled people to professional training and work, so that they can be given a productive activity suited to them.
