What Is Person Centered Planning?

Person-centered planning is a unique, individually-focused approach to planning for persons who are in need of services and supports. It is an important vehicle for empowering individuals to have a voice in the planning process and to actively shape their futures. It is a structured way of organizing planning that focuses on the unique values, strengths, preferences, capacities, needs, and desired outcomes or goals of the individual.

Planning for and providing support to a family member who is aging or living with a chronic illness or disability is a common experience for almost all of us at some point in our lives. There is no easy path to navigate the maze of medical and community supports.
