Core person-directed values are choice, dignity, respect, self-determination and purposeful living.
Culture change transformation supports the creation of both long and short-term living environments as well as community-based settings where both older adults and their caregivers are able to express choice and practice self-determination in meaningful ways at every level of daily life.
