Person-Centred Language Pledge

The Person-Centred Language initiative and resources have been co-developed by Behavioural Supports Ontario (BSO) and the Ontario Centres for Learning, Research and Innovation (CLRI) in Long-Term Care with support from an expert panel.

Person-Centred Language refers to using language that puts people first rather than the disease, symptoms or conditions that they may have. By using Person-Centred Language, we honour, respect and dignify people in our society by being thoughtful and building up strengths and abilities.

We also invite you to take the pledge and commit to person-centred language!

In signing this pledge, a personalized certificate with your name will be made available for download and printing. It can be displayed on your wall or put into your file.
