Person Centered Planning
Person-centered planning allows you to make choices and take responsibility in the development and implementation of your care plan. Person-centered planning helps define what is important to you, and allows you to have honest discussions with your care team about your wants, needs and support systems.
Person-centered plans (PCPs) may include specific services to address mental health, substance abuse or intellectual/developmental disabilities needs. However, a person-centered plan is also about living your best life and achieving your personal goals.
Some people who receive services through Vaya Health will develop PCPs or Individual Support Plans (ISPs) with their family and service team. This plan should be developed at least once a year, but also at any time you experience a significant life change. We believe you will have the most success staying healthy if you take responsibility for your treatment and help your providers know what works for you.
In developing your person-centered treatment plan, think about the following questions:
- What has happened in your life over the past year?
- What do you want your life to look like?
- Do you want to volunteer or work at a paid job?
- Where do you want to live and with whom?
- What would make where and how you live better?
- What support do you need to maintain the important things in your life?
- What would you change about your life if you could?
- What part of the day do you like best and why?
- What kind of person makes the best support person for you?
- How is your health? Do you have concerns about your general health?
Person-centered planning is the foundation for self-directed services, individual self-determination, and essential lifestyle planning. We encourage you to write your own plan using the questions above.
