What Person-Centered Care Means for Seniors

From the senior’s perspective, this type of care includes the following practices and principles:

  1. I have the right to determine how best to meet my needs.
  2. It must include me, my family and team in decision-making.
  3. My care must be empowering, nurturing and respectful.
  4. My care should optimize my physical and psychosocial well-being.
  5. “Nothing about me, without me.”

When seniors offer their perspective on quality of care and services, they most often describe how the service was experienced by them.
