In-Service Kit: The Role of the Family in Person-Centered Care Planning

This ready-to-teach in-service package includes all the pieces needed to teach a 25-minute in-service.

In-Service Topic "The Role of the Family in Person-Centered Care Planning"
A person-centered care plan is a care plan tailored to the resident’s preferences, unique needs, strengths and limitations. A care planning conference is a setting for health care professionals and caregivers to meet with members of a resident's family to learn more about the resident. By learning about the resident's individual characteristics and how the person lived before moving to the long-term care setting, we can better understand the goals to help sustain, maintain, and enhance the resident’s well-being. This will lead to building relationships essential in the development of a plan of care and appropriate interventions and approaches to reach these goals. In this in-service, caregivers will learn the following:

  • What a care plan and care plan conference is
  • The philosophy, foundation and basic concepts of person-centered care
  • What to learn about the resident
  • The role of the family and caregiver in person-centered care
  • How to guide and interact with family,offering additional resources and handouts that can be used with family
