Quality of Life (QOL) refers to the overall quality of one’s daily experiences that are defined in terms of happiness and contentment, health and well-being. While these experiences are subjective and assimilated differently from person to person, each one can be supported and encouraged to develop a recognition and sense of awareness about their own inherent and legally protected right (*WHO reference) to determine and have access to (civilized and cultural) supports that provide meaning and value for human health and well-being.
Quality of Life services at Globe Star mentor a spirit of gentleness with Individuals, and guide them in achieving a quality of life (with help or necessary supports), cultivating contentment, interdependence and a sense of community.
The design and delivery of our Quality of Life service model applies the principles and practices of Gentle Teaching. This model is designed to implement a framework of Gentle Teaching that supports Individuals in their right to define and integrate personal and cultural values into their daily life.
A framework of Gentle Teaching creates the structure for meaningful interactions that integrate quality of life values. This cultivates companionship and a sense of community with others. We work with eight, universally recognized values for developing quality of life (indicated on the colored tabs of the quality of life “wheel” image, above).
