Person-centred Planning & Screening Assessments

Understanding Personal Goals

The goal of Person-Centered planning is to promote person directed support, personal choice, independence, individual rights & responsibilities, and social inclusion.

Our services are built on progression through our Upskills Learning Continuum.

Areas explored and assessed during the planning process:

  • Natural supports & resources currently in place? Neighbors? Friends? Community groups and any other memberships?
  • The Person’s current goals; Skill development, Budgeting, Employment, Personal Empowerment, Relationship development?
  • Establishing priorities will determine the breakdown of these goals into an individual support plan for Skill Acquisition.
  • Once priorities goals are determined, we can explore services available within the community, and begin working towards the development and acquisition of these goals. This will no doubt ensure skill development, self-determination, and self-sufficiency.

If you wish to explore having a Person Centered Plan developed please contact Lisa Johnson Service Manager for Community Outreach within The Participation House Project (Durham Region) at ljohnson@nullphdurham.com
