The Person-Centred Language Commitment Statements, informed by the authentic voice of persons with lived experience, were created to promote the consistent use of person-centred language that is appropriate, respectful, life-affirming and inclusive when talking with and referring to older adults presenting with or at risk for responsive behaviours/ personal expressions that may be associated with dementia, complex mental health, substance use and/or other neurological conditions and their care partners.  Learn about Behavioural Supports Ontario’s Person-Centred Language Initiative and engage in self-reflection and discussion on why we need appropriate language and explore ways to transfer, translate and implement the concepts included in the report which was released in October of 2018.
