What is person-centred support and why is it so important?

Many supported living providers use the term ‘person-centred’ when advertising their services, but what exactly is it? And why is it such an important consideration when choosing a support provider for you or a loved one?

Person-centred support is not just about providing support that meets an individual’s physical needs, but also their emotional, and social. It recognizes that each individual is unique and requires support that is tailored to their specific needs.

In supported living services, person-centred support means involving individuals in decisions about their own care, empowering them to make choices and take control of their own lives. This approach to support promotes dignity, respect, and independence, which are essential elements of a high-quality support experience.

When delivered effectively, person-centred care can significantly impact the overall health and well-being of individuals receiving complex care services in supported living. It can improve their quality of life, reduce feelings of isolation and loneliness, and promote a sense of belonging and purpose.

Person-centred care is an essential element of quality care in supported living services. Supported living providers that specialize in complex care, like Seco Support, understand the unique needs, preferences, and goals of each individual and provide care that is tailored to those factors. This approach to support promotes dignity, respect, and independence and can have a significant impact on the overall health and well-being of individuals receiving support in supported living services.
