Person-centered care fosters a culture that supports autonomy, diversity, and individual choice. Leaders are committed to make it an important organizational value and strategy; they support it and help it mature. Relationships are cultivated among residents, families/support systems, and staff members. It promotes responsiveness, spontaneity, and continuous learning and growth. Life cycles are celebrated and residents and staff members stay connected to the local community.
In person-centered care, the long-term care setting is the resident's home and residents are the experts regarding their life in their home. Residents participate in deciding about the rhythm of their day, the services provided to them, and the issues that are important to them. Their families/support systems are partners with residents and staff members in deciding the services residents want, how they should be delivered, and how residents can help.
