Introducing the National Center on Advancing Person-Centered Practices and Systems
November 2019 | NCAPPS
“In the past 30 years, the support systems for older adults and people with disabilities have changed dramatically. In that time, long-term services and supports have generally moved to embrace person-centered values which are dedicated to the idea that individuals should have the power to define and pursue their own vision for a good life. However, many systems still struggle to put person-centered principles into practice and deliver on these commitments.”
The National Center on Advancing Person-Centered Practices and Systems (NCAPPS) is a new initiative from the Administration for Community Living and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services that helps States, Tribes, and Territories implement person-centered thinking, planning, and practice in line with U.S. Department of Health and Human Services policy.
