Person Centerd

Person centered care
To achieve good person centred care you must follow the principles of the person. This approach aims to see the person as an individual rather than focussing on illness or abilities that they may have lost. Instead of treating the person as a collection of symptoms and behaviours to be controlled, person centred care considers the person taking in to account each individual unique quality ability, interest and preferences and also their needs, ensuring the person is treated with dignity and respect. All the information you gather should be put into the individuals are plan which will enable the staff to support and encourage and maintain the unique strengths of the person to insure their needs are being met.

The information is taken about the individual is gathered from family members, care plans (that have been devised from past dwellings), even the person themselves.
Person centred care starts with an assessment of the individual to insure we can meet the needs also the right equipment and training has been put in place to ensure a safe environment. Risk assessments have to be put in place also how their needs are met. Any necessary paperwork is to be put in place ie: DOLS team need to be contacted doctors and dental or any other agencies. Make sure all consent forms as filled in by the individual if able to do this if not next of kin.
Gather information regarding the likes and dislikes of the individual ask the individual to have some input into the way their room is set out so that this will make the room person to them ie: colour preferences.
