A Process for 
Care Planning for Resident Choice

The Rothschild Person-Centered Care Planning process is to support long term care communities in their efforts to honor residents' choices that influence quality of care and quality of life, while mitigating potential risks associated with those choices. This process is specifically aimed at care planning when the choice carries sufficient risk, perhaps related to impaired cognition and inadequate decision-making capacity, and the community is considering not honoring the resident's wishes.
