A person centred care approach ‘considers the needs of a person as a whole, this including their physical, social and psychological needs’. This means that a person is seen as an individual and the care that they will receive is ‘not to or for them but in partnership with them’. (The Open University, 2014, p. 90). Person centred care, allows the individual and their families to be involved in the care that they are receiving. Person centred care services should ‘offer flexibility and should be promoting independence’ and allowing that person to have an input in any decisions being made.
Person-centred thinking is a very individual approach and way of thinking and doing things for an individual`s health and social services and make sure it meets their needs. This means putting an individual and his/her family at the centre of decisions. Always ask individuals about their own preferences and encourage them to express needs, involving family and friends to identify what service-users like or dislike, and making sure individuals have access to appropriate care when they need it. Person-centred reviews and person centred planning should be reviewing frequently due to the changes and different needs an individual may
Person centred nursing is about coordinating services to meet the person’s individual needs and desires, through this approach the person is seen as an equal partner in their own care and decision-making (Edvardsson et al, 2008). McCormack et al. (2010) provide a framework of person centred nursing in which they define the concept as: ‘...the fostering of therapeutic relationships between all care providers, people and others significant to them in their lives. It is underpinned by values of respect for persons, individual right to self determination, mutual respect and understanding.’ (McCormack et al.
Summary statement Why is this research or review needed? • The results can help to improve support for care partners through better understanding and knowledge of their needs. • To date, care partners ' needs have predominantly been studied in relation to the perspectives of the care partners of somatically ill people or care partners of people with dementia. • Although the care partners of older people with mental health problems provide comprehensive care to their relatives, often over a number of years, little is known about their experiences and needs.

What I learned from this movie that will impact my practice as a nurse is to never assume that a client who holds the same profession, smart, or a scholar is able to comprehend their own diagnosis or treatment plan so quickly. Regardless of anyone’s position, we should inform the client about their health conditions and treatment plan with great sensitivity and respect. I felt that the client was not given enough time to think about her decision regarding the chemotherapy treatment involved. Dr. Kelekian and his team are respected well in their work and research. However, they seem to focus more on their research and often times failed to treat Vivian with respect and sensitivity.

Assumptions of Person-Centered Care Model in Dementia While the benefits of person-centered care in promoting quality care and safe transitional care is well documented in the literature, there are several underlying assumptions that can lead to confusion. First, there is no single definition of person-centered care or how it is measured in each of the healthcare settings that are in existence and utilized by persons with dementia. The definition of person-centered care could vary depending on the context or the environment where the person with dementia is receiving care (Morgan & Yoder, 2012). In addition, person-centered care is often described in an intangible ways of quality rather than in concrete terms that can be easily seen or measured
