Whether you work in a hospital, dementia care, a residential treatment facility, with people on the autism spectrum, in education, social services, outpatient behavioral health—in any capacity with people who need your help—you’re likely using person centered approaches more and more every day. Across fields, care professionals have been moving away from an institutional, task-oriented approach and toward a more holistic approach that honors the individual in care—as well as the caregiver.
With Person-Centered Care, a holistic view of the person in care evolves into:
- Checking assumptions
- Choosing language and vocabulary carefully
- Leveling the hierarchy within the organization
- Changing expectations and beliefs about people
- Adjusting attitudes
- Building support networks to wrap around those in care
