Resident choice is paramount to new regulations. This session introduces participants to the I-Care Plan; a person-centered approach to care. The differences between medically-based care plans and person-centered plans are reviewed; examples of an I-Care Plan are offered. Steps to developing person-centered care plans are reviewed including exploratory questions to uncover personal preferences. Care plan meetings are discussed including participant roles and adjusting the meeting from the “traditional” to person-directed. Often, providers want to honor resident choice, but have fears of injury, risk, or liability. Key is balancing quality care/safety with choice which, while potentially risky, improves QOL. To address risk, the steps of Care Planning for Resident Choice will be reviewed.
