An example is the following from the section entitled Person Centered Planning:
“Program Planning can mean that you as the Licensee or your Administrator must put in place and properly manage a plan to assist residents to attain and maintain maximum function, health and personal stability. You must avoid a cookie cutter approach to fulfilling the lives of your residents.
Person Centered is not a real unique term but one that carries with it power and resolve. Accordingly this section of our discussion was written for community care providers to help you better understand what the concept involves. We get to the heart of what it means to run a residential care program that centers on the needs of the resident.”
Using this course assures a proper understanding of how adult foster care works and teaches key principles associated with responsible operation.
