OBJECTIVES

Person-centered care is the term used to describe the approach used in many long-term care settings…but is it? What does it really mean and is it truly being practiced? Either way, can it work, be successful and have its benefits for residents? How can gaps be identified and improvements in daily care practices be made? With the goal of creating interpersonal partnerships between care staff, people with dementia and their family members, implementing person-centered care plans needs to be holistic, individualized and flexible in nature and engage players in promoting the needs and the rights of the individual resident.

THE WORKSHOP WILL USE INTERACTIVE EXERCISES AND CASE DISCUSSION IN ORDER FOR PARTICIPANTS TO BE ABLE TO:
  • identify the concept of person centered care,
  • recognize the team players and their roles within the care plan,
  • identify where gaps may be in the approach to meeting needs,
  • promote and encourage advocacy of dignified residential treatment,
  • understand and be able to advocate for the right for residents to be treated with dignity,
  • identify and use interventions and techniques to meet individualized needs, and
  • develop a “toolkit” of the various components required by family caregivers and staff in order to promote effective individualized care.
