PERSON-CENTERED APPROACH

The philosophy of person-centred support is summed up in two words – dignity and respect. Person-centred approaches remain focused on the individual. This means:

  • Being aware of where the individual is at now, especially in terms of his or her journey, dreams and goals;
  • Matching the services and support with the person’s needs rather than the other way round;
  • The opposite of “one-size-fits-all”;
  • Not fitting the person into predetermined “packages”
  • Looking at a person’s capacities and strengths and always dealing with each person as an individual 
It’s not simply asking people what they want or offering choices; It’s guided support for what the person wants out of life.
