Person-Centered Practices Tip Sheet

  • The person is priority – individual desires, goals, insight, and values should be respected and at the center of planning
  • The power to choose – decisions should be decided WITH the individual and not for
  • Community inclusion – individuals should have full access to the community while maintaining dignity
  • Services and supports – a multidisciplinary holistic approach to address needs of the individual including natural supports as desired
  • Inform – maintain open communication/adjust your approach to ensure clear understanding of options and decisions

Focus on strengths. Remember that the effects of a brain injury are different for each person.
