What is person-centred care, and how will it benefit your loved one?



Here at CHD, we understand how important it is that your loved one receives a quality standard of care that also helps to improve their overall wellbeing.



This week, we’re taking a look at the benefits of delivering person-centred care in nursing, and how it will help your loved one.

Person-Centred Care

Person-Centred Care Focuses on Your Loved One

When your loved one starts receiving care, you may be unsure of what to expect. Person-centred care ensures that your loved one’s personal needs are fulfilled, as well as their medical needs.


It aims to focus on their overall wellbeing as well as their healthcare, and the caregiver will take the time to get to know your loved one and deliver personalised care that will see past your loved one’s disability or sickness.


It’s beneficial because it means your loved one won’t just feel like ‘another patient’; they’ll genuinely feel cared for.

Person-Centred Care Helps Your Loved One Feel Validated

Person-centred care focuses on the fact that your loved one is still a person, and they have their own thoughts and feelings.


Caregivers will look to respect your loved one’s opinions, beliefs and values, allowing them to live with autonomy and freedom to be themselves.


So, for example, your loved one will be able to comfortably practise their religion or take part in cultural events with the support of their caregiver and have a mutual respect and understanding of each other’s beliefs.


Your loved one will also have the freedom to build new relationships, and their caregiver will provide the tools and opportunities for enabling this to happen - such as by organising sociable activities or get-togethers.

Your Loved One Will Retain a Sense of Independence

Person-centred care helps your loved one to retain a sense of independence by involving them in their care plan and letting them have a say in the day-to-day decisions about their life.


This ensures your loved one doesn’t feel overlooked or invalidated when they’re in receipt of care; they’re acknowledged and consulted about their individual care plan.


In person-centred care settings, healthcare professionals work together to deliver the best possible treatment and care for your loved one that works towards a mutual goal.


Medical providers can then access your loved one’s medical records to ensure they receive the care they truly need, without compromise.

Person-Centred Care Enables Your Loved to Maintain a Good Quality of Life

Person-centred care prioritises your loved one’s overall health rather than just their physical health. Care staff strive to ensure your loved one is happy and included, and that their care is delivered in a sensitive and dignified manner.


Your loved one will feel enabled to live with dignity and have a good quality of life, that is centred around family-oriented care.
