Providers and the Elders They Serve

Culture Change

Culture change refers to the national movement for the transformation of older adult services, based on person-directed values and practices where the voices of elders and those working with them are considered and respected. Core person-directed values are choice, dignity, respect, self-determination and purposeful living. Click here for the Pioneer Network’s definition of Culture Change.
