Question and answer
explain why it is important to establish a person centered plan catering to an individuals specific preferences and needs
Person Centred Planning Autumn/winter 2002 At Sense we have always taken pride in providing deafblind people a specialist and individually-tailored service. [ Now we are taking that approach one step further and introducing ‘person centred planning’ to enable people to live the life they want. Hilary Todd reports on how this evolution in practice can produce a revolution in people’s
lifestyles. It’s Monday morning and Paul and Sarah have finished hoovering and dusting their three-bedroom house and are relaxing with a fish and chip lunch in the TV room. “We are very happy in our new house,” signs Paul; “Lucky Sarah, lucky Paul.” The very ordinariness of the scene belies the extraordinary processes that enabled Paul and Sarah, who are good friends, to select and move to this house. It is not a Sense group home, but a housing association property where Paul and Sarah are the tenants and where Sense provides a rota of five staff to support them. Their move to their new home was the outcome of ‘person centred planning’, a subtly different way of supporting deafblind people to enjoy the lifestyle of their choice and to realise their own ambitions. What is person centred planning? Put simply, person centred planning (PCP) is a means to shape a service to an individual rather than slotting an individual into whatever service an agency provides. PCP has been defined as “A way of helping people who want to make some changes in their life, an empowering approach that enables people to plan their future and organise the support and services they need to do so. ]
