The importance of person-centred care activities
Person-Centred Care Activities play an important part in every person’s care plan, especially for individuals living with dementia. It is one of the 13 fundamental standards of care set by the Care Quality Commission – the independent regulator of health and social care in England.
As the requirement for care is ever-increasing, it is vital that caregivers do not lose sight of the person behind the syndrome.
Person-Centred Care Activities help fulfil each resident’s emotional needs beyond their physical needs, and puts them at the centre of their care, promoting individuality, retaining their dignity, and allowing them to lead a fulfilling life.
At Manucourt, we are truly passionate about Person-Centred Care Activities and creating an environment where our residents’ emotional, social, and practical needs can be met alongside the requirements of their tailored care plan.
We have also found that personalised activities encourage residents to make their own decisions therefore providing them with a level of independence, in addition to increased engagement.
