PERSON-CENTRED CARE is a fast growing philosophy that seeks to change the culture of today’s long-term, residential care settings from institutions to co-operative environments in which residents want to live, and those who care for them enjoy working.
This pioneering approach provides a framework for re-modelling the world of long-term care of Older People. It focuses on creating an environment that encourages the continuation of personal growth for everyone involved.
The essence of person-centred care is simple: to teach ourselves to see residential and care homes as communities with older people at the centre. Creating communities which support active care, interaction with others, and healthy lifestyles, makes for a happier, healthier and more independent life for those we care for.
