OPPO Newsletter - December 2021

"Joy is found when you focus your energy on improving human dignity, human capacity and human values.” -Amit Ray

December is Universal Human Rights Month

What are human rights? Human rights are rights we have simply because we exist as human beings - they are not granted by any state. These universal rights are inherent to us all, regardless of nationality, sex, national or ethnic origin, color, religion, language, or any other status. They range from the most fundamental - the right to life - to those that make life worth living, such as the rights to food, education, work, health, and liberty. The best way we can celebrate Universal Human Rights Month is by working to find common ground with those around us who may not have the same background as we do. We are all born into the same world, we are all humans, and our different races, religions, beliefs, and cultures shoudln't divide us. December 10, Human Rights Day, is a global holiday that marks the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights by the United Nations in 1948. Article I of the Declaration states, "All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood."

We believe that Axiscare will really simplify your documentation and clock-in experience, not to mention presenting an easier way to get in contact with us and other caregivers using the included messaging features. Starting December 13th we will be using Axiscare to clock in and out of all home-based care shifts (Jeannette’s Staff). Eventually, Axiscare will replace Therap and T-sheets completely. However, for the week of December 13-17th, we will ask you to keep using Therap and Tsheets while we make sure all of the kinks get worked out. Please come to the December Monthly Huddle to attend the training on Axiscare and get all your questions answered. Reach out to Jeannette Garcia if you have questions in the meantime. See the attached guide to get Axiscare set up on your phone.
