Activity: 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)
