Person Centred Care

Whatever stage of life we are at and whatever our health may be, we all want to be, and deserve to be, treated with dignity and respect. Understanding the person’s history, lifestyle, culture and preferences, including their likes, dislikes, hobbies and interests are all extremely important.
