Person-Centered Care (PCC) is a dynamic process of interaction that facilitates individualized psycho-emotional, social, physical and existential support WITH the person. The support and care is based on the person’s needs, values, aspirations and preferences. Person-centeredness promotes well-being through continuation of self and normal life and the experience of living a life of enjoyment, comfort, belonging, purpose and meaning. Person-centered practices are based on humanistic values and the fundamental premise that every person has a unique history, strengths, interests and needs and has the right to self-determination in how to go about living his/her life.
The award will be used to support research activities relating to aging and person-centered care for the University at Buffalo.
