You’ve heard about Person-Centered Care

Chances are, you already use many aspects of it in your work with older adults and others who need support for their daily living. Whether you work in a nursing home, assisted living, memory care, adult care home or provide in-home care, you have probably heard some different opinions, questions and points of view about person-centered care. Do any of these sound familiar?

  • I hear the term person-centered care, but I’m not really sure what it means.

  • Isn’t everything we do here person-centered already?

  • I’d like to do person-centered care, but it seems pretty unrealistic. I feel like it’s just one more thing I have to do.

  • I don’t see how person-centered care practices fit the community where I work.

  • I get the idea of person-centered care and feel like I do it. I’d like to do more, but I don’t really know how.

If so, this online training course is for you!


In these two modules you will learn about:

  • The definition of person-centered care and hear it described by many different experts who have followed its principles for years

  • TRACK – a self-reflection tool

  • How TRACK can be used when providing care for older adults
