Abstract

Purpose of the Study: Research is needed to demonstrate the application of person- and relationship-centered care to nursing home practice. This article aimed to find a suitable person/relationship-centered framework to assist with mobility care practice improvements in nursing homes. Design and Method: The authors discuss the task of mobility care, the nature of person- and relationship-centered care, and the significance of such approaches to mobility care. The Senses Framework (Nolan, Davies, Ryan, & Keady, 2008) is employed to develop mobility care practice improvement objectives. Results: The objectives are used to evaluate outcomes from 2 hypothetical scenarios to illustrate the possible value of the Senses Framework. Implications: The Senses Framework facilitated development of objectives for mobility care practice improvement that considers the needs of all stakeholders.
