What is Person Centered Care?


involving and empowering our rehab patients and long term residents

Person Centered Care is based on patient/resident preferences, shared decision making and initiation for self care management whenever possible.

Assessments, interventions and plans of care address medical, clinical and behavioral needs and reflect the individual’s ability to contribute to making their own healthcare decisions.

Person Centered Care is a process for planning and supporting the patient/resident receiving services that builds upon the individual’s capacity to engage in activities that promote community life and that honors preferences, choices and abilities. The person centered care process involves families, friends, and professionals as the individual desires or requests.
