Person Centred Care

Many people feel something of their life has, in some way, been lost when they receive care services. Therefore, you need to be extremely careful not to take over, or be seen to. Person centred care means putting the person’s needs and rights first, focusing less on the task and more on the person.

This isn’t an “airy-fairy” course lacking in practical content, quite the opposite. It’s a refreshingly information-filled course with lots of practical guidance on day-to-day person centred care in health and social care situations.
