  • Registered Nurses


This course is a practical guide defining person-centered care.


The course describes home care practices that promote person-centered care, how home care clinicians and care managers can help promote a meaningful life and optimal function for their clients, and explores the importance of culturally sensitive and appropriate care to older adults. 

This series was developed to assure that interprofessional team members have the knowledge to care for older adults in the home. These modules promote team-based, coordinated, person-centered, evidence-based, quality home care for older adults.

This series was created by The Hartford Institute of Geriatric Nursing (HIGN) at New York University Rory Meyers College of Nursing, in partnership with the Visiting Nurse Service of New York.
