Answer: For person centred planning the individual decides what they want and this might not be from the services that are on offer. This can be difficult for Care Managers to commission services as they may not be wanted or needed. For example, many homes have been structured according to the people’s disabilities or needs like people with Down Syndrome, autism, learning and physical disabilities. Many of these small residential homes have been founded on the belief that people with similar levels of needs should live together. With person centred planning, people with disabilities should be supported to choose who they live with, if there is any, how they live, where they live and who supports them. In order for individuals to have the same freedoms and choices as the rest of the society, the services that are commissioned must provide the needs of the individual and not be service led.
