What demonstrates Person Centered Care?
The PELI Interview!

Recently nursing homes were introduced to use a tool that changes how we interview residents. The PELI interview allows staff in facilities a rare and unique opportunity to sit and listen and learn to get to know their residents. Building relationships that are bonds by seeking information regarding the uniqueness of each person through this interview process. We have two documents for references regarding the PELI Interview from Scripps Gerontology that you may use in planning and implementation for your facility.

New consumer-focused brochure!

brochure The Ohio Person-Centered Care Coalition developed a brochure for nursing home residents. It is designed to function as a tool for residents to define what person-centered care is to them and to help them communicate those preferences to facility staff. The brochure provides statements to help residents create a conversation with caregivers about his or her preferences, choices, abilities, and culture. Please feel free to download, print, and distribute this brochure widely to help spread the message of person-centered care.

IMPORTANT: The brochure is designed to be printed on 8.5” x 14” paper so please set your printer and paper settings accordingly.
