Person-centred practices are a key way to provide the best possible care and support for older people and help them to be active and valued members of the community. Drawing on a wealth of experience of working with older people, the authors present the 6 essential person-centred practices. Each of the practices is designed to support the individual and put what is important to and for the person at the forefront of their care. Each practice has been tailored so that older people can express more easily what does and does not work for them. By actively listening and making each person feel appreciated, the practices represent practical tools for frontline practitioners to form good relationships with people in their care. With supporting stories and full colour photographs to illustrate how person-centred thinking and practice is used in real-life settings, there are many examples to help practitioners to overcome challenges and to really implement positive, effective changes to care. This practical book will be a valuable resource for care staff, social workers and healthcare workers who want to learn about person-centred practices to deliver best practice care and support.

Dispelling the myths about how personalisation works for people with dementia living in care homes, this book demonstrates how to introduce Individual Service Funds (ISFs), what works and what doesn't, and how to deal with difficulties and setbacks. Individual Service Funds are one way that people living with dementia can have a personal budget. The authors explain how they went about introducing the principles of ISFs to people living with dementia in a large care home in Stockport, without using any additional funding. They describe the person-centred practices used and the involvement of the council, commissioners, staff and families. Through clear and detailed stories and examples, they demonstrate the dramatic approach to quality of life for people with dementia the approach can deliver. There is a strong emphasis on managerial and organisational issues, including getting staff 'on board', providing adequate support, budgeting, building effective partnerships and implementing change. Providing helpful insights and examples for good practice, this book is essential reading for all those involved in providing personalised care for people with dementia living in care homes, including care staff, care home managers, local authority commissioners, service providers and policy makers.

This accessible report explores why and how person-centred planning has spread from learning disability services to influence the whole of adult social care. The recent emphasis on self-directed support in adult social care makes this a timely overview of the origins of person-centred planning. The study describes how person-centred planning began, discusses the evidence base and explains why many practitioners find it an effective way to support people with social care needs. The authors take a critical but constructive look at the claims for person-centred planning in the context of current policy and service developments. They identify barriers to the approach and possible ways to overcome them. This report will fill a major knowledge gap on person-centred planning, and is also relevant to debates about individual budget, self-directed support and In Control.
