Toolkit for Person-Centeredness in Assisted Living Now Available

The Toolkit for Person-Centeredness in Assisted Living was developed through a close partnership between the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and the national Center for Excellence in Assisted Living (CEAL), along with assisted living providers, residents, family members, and organizational representatives. Available for free download, the Toolkit includes questionnaires to be completed by assisted living residents and staff, and simple, easy-to-follow instructions for scoring and interpreting the results. The questionnaires measure Person-Centered Practices in Assisted Living, and are called the PC-PAL.

For more information or to obtain a certificate of completion recognizing a community’s use of the PC-PAL, contact Lauren Cohen, Associate Director, Collaborative Studies of Long-term Care, at 919-843-8874 or
