Person Centred

Posted on May 31, 2012 at 6:49 PM
We consider the social, psychological, and spiritual needs of each person as well as their care needs.  We have chosen to remain a relatively small agency so that we do not risk losing this personal involvement. 

Person-centred care involves valuing each individual.  As we said on our home page, it personally matters to us that each and every one of our clients is happy with their care. Whatever someone’s age or infirmity, colour or gender, they are entitled to be treated with dignity and respect. 

Our carers will do everything they to give the person they care for a good quality of life.Providing person-centred care also involves recognising and supporting the unique personal history and personality of individuals.  Live-in care is an ideal way to do this as the client remains in their own home, even when they require full time care, and the care plan is based around the lifestyle of the individual. Obviously there are certain constraints as we also have to take account of legislation and the well-being of the carers but we do everything possible to fulfil a client’s individual requirements.

Person-centred care also requires carers to try and understand the world from the perspective and experiences of the person they are caring for and be able to demonstrate empathy through actions and support. This is particularly important when the person being care for is experiencing a dementia

WORKING IN A PERSON CENTRED WAY IN LEICESTER

What is person centred planning?
Person centred planning is a way of supporting you to make choices and change your life. Its a way of helping you to plan for future and organise any support and services you may require.

How is person centred planning different?
We invite your family, carers and friends to support you to do things you want to do. We call this a 'Circle of Support'.

As the person who is having a plan, you are known as the 'focus person'. You choose who to invite to your meetings, and when and where meetings are held.

Person centred facilitators write what people say in the meeting on big sheets of paper on the wall. They use easy words and pictures. This helps everyone understand what is being talked about and be sure about what things mean.

The plan belongs to you and is for you to keep. You choose who to share it with.

We use person centred planning to support you to:
1. Let other people know what you are thinking or feeling and what is happening to you.
2. Speak up and be listened to.
3. Make choices in your life and help you to take control.
4. Think about getting a job.
5. Move house,(if you want to), and
6. Decide what to do during the day.

We use person centred planning to find out about the things in your life that need to change.
We use it to try to bring about positive changes in your life.
Person centred planning can help you deal with changes you may not have been able to change all by yourself.
At the meeting, the facilitator will use different person centred planning ways of working to help get information.
When we have gathered all the information, we use it to make a plan of action. This is about how you choose to be supported to make changes in your life.
