Domain 4: Alternate Living Arrangements

Time to read: less than a 1 minute.

Practitioners and other providers will want to be familiar with various living arrangements so they understand the limitations and the strengths of the setting of care within which the consumer already resides. There are a wide variety of options available to consumers seeking an alternative arrangement, and the practitioner will want to be knowledgeable of the similarities and differences between the many options. Autonomy and choice is at the core of consumer-centered care and relationships. It is important to offer as wide a choice of facilities as possible and to consider geographic locations in order to facilitate existing relationships with family and friends.
