According to the Administration for Community Living, Person-Centered Planning “is a process for selecting and organizing the services and supports that an older adult or person with a disability may need to live in the community.  Most importantly, it is a process that is directed by the person who receives the support. Person-Centered Planning helps the person construct and articulate a vision for the future, consider various paths, engage in decision-making and problem solving, monitor progress, and make needed adjustments in a timely manner. It highlights individual responsibility, including taking appropriate risks.”
