Continuum of Person Directed Culture

This framework illustrates the differences along the journey from a traditional, institutional Provider-Directed organizational culture to one that is Person-Directed, supporting autonomy and enhancing well-being. Examples are provided of specific practices, illustrating ways they are often implemented at each point in the continuum.  These include Care Assignments, Moving In, Dining, Bathing, Medication Administration, Providing Assistance at Night, and Death and Dying. These examples are meant to provide a fuller understanding of common practices and how they can be modified to help reach the goal of a Person-Directed Culture.  Access more information here about the Continuum of Person Directed Culture and Applying the Continuum of Person Directed Culture.
