Person Centered Care is a private company established by Kelly Youssef and Karishma Patel. Together, the co-founders had the vision to help enable people, particularly those with developmental disabilities, to achieve the highest level of a quality, inclusive life. Between them, Karishma and Kelly have over 20 years of experience helping those individuals to experience the satisfaction of being able to self-direct their lives.
We partner with individuals and their loved ones to help create an individualized plan to meet the person’s needs. The Direct Support Professionals that we recruit, hire, train, and manage are specifically placed on a team where their skills, interests, and background will be best suited to the individual being supported. Once in place, this team is there to support the individual in their own home or within their family home, as well as helping them to establish a valued presence in their community. Families can put their minds at ease, trusting that now and in the future, we are there to ensure that their loved ones will continue to live the life that they want and deserve.
Person Centered Care is more than just who we are, it is a way of life. We believe that all people have the right to live, love, dream, and pursue their life’s aspirations. Applying the core concept of Person Centered Care, we keep the person being supported at the center of all plans. It is about the person; it is how they see and want the quality of their life to be. It is important to Person Centered Care to build a team around the individual, where we value the importance of existing relationships and interactions within their communities to provide a quality life. Because we understand that each person is unique, having goals and desires specific to them, we at Person Centered Care strive to help them express their individuality with the remarkable work that we do. Our mission is to enable people to self-direct their lives as they choose.
