The Institute for Person-Centered Care -- the first of its kind in the United States -- is designed to provide better delivery of services to frail and vulnerable people, particularly the elderly, and support advocacy and public awareness of their needs, through a program of cross-disciplinary research, education and practice development. This new interdisciplinary institute will bring together researchers, educators, health care providers and community-based programs to develop and disseminate evidence-based care of the frail and aging citizens in our society.
Person-centered care (PCC) is a journey that moves decision-making directly to the individual despite frailty, cognitive impairment or the location in which services are provided. PCC includes the valuable input of care partners and integrates all aspects of daily life creating environments where people can truly thrive and grow.
