Hi this is Anthony Diaz with Rosa’s Chante Adult Care Living. I want to take a moment to talk about how important local business is. As you know, Rosa’s Chante is a local business. My parents went out of their way to create this, and I have spent the past 20 plus years making sure Rosa’s feeds our local economy.
What do I mean by that? It means when I get paid for a resident every last penny goers right back into our local community. Some adult care facilities are chains and are owned by corporations. So when a loved one pays for their parents to stay at those homes, the money goes to the general office. Of course all office workers and administration is paid. The money is then sent back and what is left, goes for the care for your family member, and the staff that takes care of them.
At Rosa’s, going local means being local. When you pay Rosa’s for your loved one’s services every penny goes into your loved ones care and local services. That means food, medical care, services, all contractors and all advertizing is all local. Your dollar is going locally and directly to you loved ones care.
Locally owned businesses such as Rosa’s build strong communities by linking neighbors in a web of economic and social relationships, and contributing to local causes. Locally owned businesses create more jobs locally and, in most sectors, provide better wages and benefits than chains do. It keeps your dollar in the local economy.
Chain nursing homes and adult care homes threaten to change the unique character of local community. It becomes a template and nothing is personalized. At Rosa’s we know that each person is unique and needs a unique plan for them. By being local, we are able to foster that with each one of our residents.
Finally, going local means paying it forward. We keep everything local and feed our local economy. Each time we get a new resident, our community benefits as well because we keep all services local. I hope this explains a little bit about being local and staying local and how important it is not just for our reseidents but for our wonderful community.
