Person Centered Planning

Person-Centered Planning

What Is IPMG’s Person-Centered Planning Process?

Person-Centered Planning is a process used to identify the strengths, capacities, preferences, needs and desired outcomes of the Individuals served. The process includes participants chosen by the Individual, who assist the Individual to identify personally meaningful life outcomes, as well as goals or stepping stones toward achieving those outcomes. Participants chosen by the Individual could include their guardian (if applicable), family, friends, etc. The results of this process are then translated into a plan that is used to identify waiver services as well as community and natural supports.

Indiana’s Division of Disability and Rehabilitative Services is a member of the LifeCourse Framework Community of Practice and IPMG Case Managers are trained in the use of the LifeCourse Framework as an important component of Person-Centered Planning. The Charting the LifeCourse Framework was created based on the core believe that all people have the right to live, love, work, play and pursue their life aspirations just as others do in their community. People lead whole lives made up of specific, connected, and integrated life domains that are important to a good quality of life. Life domains are the different aspects and experiences of life that we all consider as we age and grow.
