We spend time listening to, and understanding, an individual. We learn about what’s important to them, what their needs and wants are, and how they would like to live their life. Then we work closely with them and their family, as well as other support professionals to create a person centred plan. This sets out what their goals are and how we will work together to help them achieve them.
A person centred plan is a living document – regularly updated as needs or goals change. It’s also regularly referred to by everyone involved so that we can ensure we’re working together to provide consistent, appropriate support.
