Person Centred Care PCC

Person Centred Care (PCC) is based on a set of principles and criteria, such as fundamental rights, individuality, autonomy and the project life of each person. PCC offers care, which allows the different professionals involved in providing services to the elderly, to perform the care from a holistic point of view, respecting their wishes and desires, promoting their autonomy and empowerment in order to ensure and improve their quality of life.
