YOUR LIFE. YOUR GOALS. YOUR CHOICE. YOUR CONTROL.
The choices, control, likes, ambitions, life goals and overall quality of life of the individual are central to the support and services we provide. We create and provide meaningful, individually-tailored, supports and services designed to empower each individual to live their lives to the maximum potential.
Our key principles of person-centered care are:
- Valuing people
Treating people with dignity and respect by being aware of and supporting personal perspectives, values, beliefs and preferences. Listening to each other and working in partnership to design and deliver individualized services.
The provision of choice and subsequent respect for choices made. Balancing rights, risks and responsibilities. Optimising a person’s control through the sharing of power and decision-making. Maximising independence by building on individual strengths, interest and abilities
- Life experience
Supporting the sense of self by understanding the importance of a person’s past, their present-day experience, and their hopes for the future.
- Understanding relationships
Collaborative relationships between DAACCS, the individual and their carers. Social connectedness through the local community through opportunities to engage in meaningful activities.
Organisational values underpinned by person-centred principles. Responsive support that is responsive to individual needs. A planned, organisation-wide effort to individual and organisational learning.
