Moving toward Person- and Family-centered Care
This report from AARP defines person- and family-centered care, and outlines the central tenets of each caring philosophy. It explains that family caregivers can be an invaluable source of care for their loved ones. The paper argues that public policies should be instituted to provide greater support to these caregivers, particularly when it comes to supporting them and coordinating care among nurses, direct-care workers, and other professional caregivers.
