Person Centered Planning

Person Centered Planning

Person Centered Planning is an ongoing planning, problem-solving, and decision making process that places the person at the center, driving development. PersonCentered Plans identify the support and health and safety needs, preferences, strengths, and desired outcomes of the person. The person-centered planning process supports individuals to be engaged in making decisions about how they envision their life now and in the future. It is used to help people choose community-based supports and services to meet their needs and assist them to achieve their outcomes. A robust and informative person-centered planning process is required by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

The framework is the keystone for supporting a community of learning that champions transformational change through knowledge exchange, capacity building, and collaborative engagement.
