Remembering the Person in Person-Centered Residential Dementia Care
Although person-centered care is aimed at tailoring care to the biological, behavioral, biographical, and social needs of an individual, there is often little discussion about exactly who is the person in person-centered care. Instead, “person” is often reduced to the biographical details assembled from family and staff. This article suggests ways for making sure that the entire person is considered, using the case story of R.H., a woman with dementia whose concept of her own person differed greatly from the one presented by her family and caregivers.
