Person-Centered Planning and Care with Dr. Jane Everson, Ph.D., Project Principal Investigator, University of South Carolina Medical School
Knowing a person’s background, preferences, and priorities can help families and other caregivers most effectively care for a loved one or client. Person-centered planning is a process for better understanding a loved one’s background and preferences as well as determining services and supports that may be needed and involves the person receiving the care in a key role in the conversation. Host Frances S. Hall – Founder & Executive Director, ACAPcommunity is joined by Dr. Jane Everson, Ph.D., Project Principal Investigator, University of South Carolina Medical School in this episode.
