Person Centered Planning (PCP) is a method of discovering and documenting the strengths, abilities, personal connections, community supports, dreams, choices and preferences you have and want to make in your life. Person Centered Planning can take many forms, but always incorporates some constants. These include:
The purpose and goal of having a Person Centered Planning meeting is to generate a plan for the services you will be receiving from CSDD that will allow you to profit from the skills, abilities and talents you already have and to identify the dreams, desires and goals you want to work on with us now and in the future. PCP’s are designed to maximize:
Self Determination is a group of concepts that shifts control of resources used to pay for the supports agreed to in a Person Centered Plan from the agency to an individual. It is based on four principles; Freedom, Authority, Responsibility and Confirmation.
Freedom: The ability to control, within agency, Medicaid and legal limits, the funds that pay for a consumer’s care.
Authority: The ability to actively manage the supports a consumer receives. This can include choosing a provider agency or hiring and firing their staff.
Responsibility: The responsibility of asking for only needed supports and using those supports for the purposes defined in the Person Centered Plan and in agreement with all applicable laws and regulations.
Confirmation: The responsibility for all parties to wisely manage public funds entrusted to them and to maintain documentation of how those funds were spent.
Self Determination (SD), like the current supports consumers use, should not replace natural supports in the community. SD supports are supposed to increase access to and maintain placement in the consumer’s community of choice.
How do I get a Self Determination Plan?
The basis of a good Self Determination Plan is a good Person Centered Plan. Talk with your Case Manager / Supports Coordinator during you preplanning and ask to use Self Determination in the management of the supports you are receiving in your Person Centered Plan. Your Case Manager / Supports Coordinator and your PCP team will help you plan for the supports you need to be successful in meeting your goals in your plan, and how to more directly manage those supports using Self Determination principles and practices.
