Person-Centered Planning (PCP) is useful for everyone, but people who receive support find PCP particularly useful. Anyone who is at risk for losing positive control or preparing for a major life transition could benefit from PCP.
Centers for Medicare and Medicaid
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) have updated their regulatory-setting requirements for people who receive support on home- and community-based waivers and in nursing facilities. Person-Centered Planning is now required for all people who receive waiver supports and live in federally-funded nursing facilities.
The person-centered description developed through the person-centered plan facilitation process is the first step in understanding what a person wants from their life and how to best support them in creating the life they love.
Bios uses Person-Centered Thinking skills to discover what is important TO and FOR the people we serve and how to support them best to achieve a balanced life with outcomes they find meaningful.
