we walk in those heals with our head held high. 001.jpgActivity: How Person Centered am I?


For a family and health care professional to provide meaningful person centred care they need to get to know me, my likes dislikes, wishes, dreams, etc.  For example:

Even though Sharon is Scottish, she hates porridge oats,  but

  • she loves Blues music
  • Personal grooming, especially her hair is really important
  • she loves the ocean and spending time there
  • she needs lots of light in her room
  • she does not like over use of touch (hugs)

In the reply box below or in your notebook, list five things that a carer or health care professional would need to know about you to provide person centred care? Describe why these things are important to you.
