Resident Satisfaction: How Increasing Resident Needs Are Challenging Person-Centered Care
In health care, person-centered care is where the residents actively participate in their own medical treatment in cooperation with the health professionals. Person-centered care is a way of thinking and doing things that sees the residents using health and social services as equal partners in planning, developing and monitoring care to make sure it meets their needs. A person-centered approach to nursing focuses on the individual's personal needs, wants, desires and goals so that they become central to the care and nursing process. This means putting the resident's needs, as they define them, above those identified as priorities by healthcare professionals. The solution is treating people with respect and dignity by being aware of and supporting personal perspectives, values and beliefs. Also, listening to each other and working in partnership to design and deliver services.
