Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE) has launched a new action planning tool and four films which help managers, and owners of care homes for older people, to explore what person-centred care means for residential settings. Think Local Act Personal (TLAP) have also contributed a series of good practice examples from a series of care homes for older people across the country showcasing features such as co-production, access to civic life, volunteer engagement and good environmental designs.
What is personalisation?
Personalisation means building services and support around people so they can lead fulfilling lives. Towards the end of people’s lives, personalised care and support helps ensure people spend their time in ways that matter to them and with the people they want to share time with.
Views of personalisation - Video's from SCIE
These videos supported by Think Local Act Personal explore key aspects of personalisation, and feature a number of people reflecting on the importance of providing good person-centred care.
In the video's we hear from care home staff, directors and commissioners, and from national organisations talking about different aspects of personalisation, and how they can improve quality of care.
