Person-Centered Care

 

How does it work?


Person-Centered Care (PCC) is a philosophical approach to Long-Term care that honors and respects the voice of elders and those working closest with them. It involves a continuing process of listening, trying new things, seeing how they work, and changing things in an effort to individualize care and de-institutionalize nursing homes, residential care facilities, assisted living facilities, and in Long-Term care services (like home health care) provided in individuals' homes in
the community.

In Person-centered care the
individual has the right to:

 

•    Make decisions

•    Have an individual plan of care

•    Be included on the care planning
     team with the provider
     (such as the nursing home or
     home care program)

•    Have their hopes, dreams and
     goals be central to their plan

•    Organizations related to
     Person-Centered Care

Community-based Long-Term Care:

Services for persons who are living in the community (in their home or with a family member or friend, in a single home or an apartment building) as opposed to in a facility or institution. Such services include home-delivered meals, congregate (group) meals, adult day care, senior centers, transportation, chore, home health care (nursing, aides, therapies), durable medical equipment, case management, and may be provided by the PASSPORT, PACE and other programs, and other certified and licensed agencies and organizations.
