Across North America, nursing home culture is changing to become more person-centred. Person-centred care is a philosophy that puts the focus on the person, rather than the task and includes offering and respecting individuality and choice.

Last year’s People and Progress Continuing Care Conference introduced the concept of person-centred care and gave delegates a chance to learn how other organizations have undertaken this culture change. Stories of other organizations strengthen the belief that elders, even the most frail, should be able to have good daily life wherever they might live.

As CapitalCare embarks on its own journey toward person-centred care, we have learned that we have much more to learn about transforming our culture, hence the theme: Person Centred Care – The Passion Continues.
