Toolkit for Person-Centeredness in Assisted Living – An Informational Guide and Questionnaires of Person-Centered Practices in Assisted Living (PC-PAL)

Initially released for use in June 2014, 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.  Unlike earlier tools, the PC-PAL questionnaires are based on research evidence and have been rigorously tested for ease of use and statistical validity.
