YOU’VE GOT GOALS & WE’RE HERE TO HELP YOU REALIZE THEM

PERSON-CENTRED
PLANNING AND THINKING

Person-Centred Planning and Thinking is a set of values, skills and tools we use to get to know someone and discover what they find important and what they want out of life. It ensures that we focus on what matters to the people we support and their family, and that we pay attention to staff as well. By working in this way we can make sure that people are truly listened to and are kept at the heart of all decision-making and how our service is commissioned, provided and organized. Being a person-centred organization is our ongoing priority at the heart of our personalized journey. (Person-Centred Thinking Best Practice).

This includes:

  • Yearly PCP (Person-Centred Plan) Updates – live document, updated continuously
  • 3 Year Facilitated PCP
