The question in the back of Ann’s mind in every major decision she makes for Abound is: “Where is the client’s voice in this decision?”

“To treat others the way I want to be treated is a principle I govern my life by, and actively listening to others is one of the best ways to all people. Not being heard makes one feel not respected or valued. I firmly believe in treating all people, no matter their abilities, with respect and value! This includes having people we serve and support at the table when our Human Rights Committe convenes to review rights issues and at the Quality Assurance committee to review the quality of services. We want to hear their perspective, how they feel we are respecting and valuing them as people & suggestions to help our organization become better at empowering them!!!”
– Ann Newsome, Vice-President of Clinical Compliance
