The Center for Excellence in Assisted Living (CEAL) and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC) have released Person-Centered Care in Assisted Living: An Informational Guide, a collection of 9 person-centered attributes and indicators for assisted living. LeadingAge is a member of CEAL, which is a collaborative of national provider, consumer and advocacy organizations.

“A key objective of CEAL is to identify and disseminate information that fosters practices, policies and research that promote excellence in assisted living, and to help make the industry aware of best practices as developed by experts,” says CEAL Chair Josh Allen. “The development of person-centered attributes and indicators…provides a strong framework for providers, regulators and advocates to deliver on the core promises of assisted living.”
