Person-centered care is not about more forms, more lists, more reporting, or more work. It is about finding a decent and kind way to serve older adults that makes their lives and the lives of their caregivers more meaningful, a common-sense approach to bringing care back into caregiving at the nursing home and enriching the lives of those that live and work there.

For more information, call 1-800-331-2644. To learn more about the Person Centered Care lending library and initiative, visit the AAA8 web site. A description of each of the items in the library is available on the web site.
