Caring Arms

Person-centred care is an approach to healthcare that prioritizes the individual receiving care. At Caring Arms, we have implemented a person-centred approach to enable individuals with disabilities to lead the life they desire. This approach involves tailoring care to meet the unique needs and desires of the person, rather than focusing on the service itself. It prioritizes self-determination, empowerment, and providing healthcare that is tailored to the individual’s specific needs and preferences. We involve family, carers, and other supporters in the decision-making process to facilitate positive outcomes. Our commitment to person-centred care puts the individual at the heart of everything we do.


  • All decisions and planning of care revolve around the person receiving it.
  • The decision-making process involves considering the input of significant others, such as family members and friends.
  • The care plan should reflect the person’s capabilities, priorities, and specify the support required to enable them to make a meaningful contribution to their community.
  • Support providers must engage in continuous listening, learning, and taking action to assist the individual in achieving their desired life outcomes.

Adopting a person-centred care approach leads to more personalised and appropriate care, promoting independence and greater control over one’s life. This approach enhances engagement and improves decision-making, resulting in safer, more effective, and higher quality care. Involving individuals in decision-making, planning, goal-setting, and monitoring of their care aligns with ethical values of fairness and respect. Person-centred care replaces traditional disability support roles and fosters a collaborative relationship between support providers and clients, ensuring suitable and more personalised outcomes.
