Resident Growth and Wellness Plans

We advocate for a shift from institutional models of care to person-directed values and practices that put the person first. Well-being is the ultimate outcome of a human life. Well-being, as a frame of reference, requires us to focus on the strengths, possibilities, dreams, and goals of each individual.

In the traditional health care model, care plans are used as a way to establish one’s identity in terms of what assistance is needed and the deficits they live with–defining care needs in term of diagnosis or disease. Our Growth and Wellness Plans use well-being as our frame of reference. The goals are focused on strengths, preferences, and growth. Then we know how to partner with each resident to highlight and strengthen the sense of individuality to define assistance needed within the culture of caring.
