DBIS Definition of Person-Centered Support:

Person-centered support sees clients as equal partners in planning, developing and assessing supports and services to make sure they are most appropriate for their needs. It involves putting clients and their families at the heart of all decisions and ensuring that they are fully informed.

Person-centered support aims to be user focused, promote independence and autonomy, provide choice and control, ensure clients are treated with dignity and respect, and be based on a collaborative team philosophy.

Person-centered support involves:

  • Compassion/listening, dignity and respect – these are the essential foundation for the greater involvement of people in their own care and the building of relationships.
  • Shared decision making- this requires the involvement of clients as equal partners in their support services.
  • Provides opportunities for clients to continually grow and develop
  • Collective client and public involvement – this is about involving people in decisions about the design and delivery of services and responding to their feedback.
