Whole person means your health and wellness are not limited to your physical health but on the well-being of you as the whole person. There are several areas that contribute to wellness for all of us, such as emotional, financial, social, spiritual, occupational, and physical health. It also means that you have a partnership role with your health care provider in deciding the best ways to achieve and maintain your well-being. This partnership is essential for your doctor to understand your uniqueness and how circumstances and events in your life make it easier or harder to be healthy. This person-centered approach is also essential so that the care you are receiving fits with your day to day life, which makes it more likely to be successful. Another important feature of ‘whole person’ care is that it includes health and wellness promotion that builds each person’s resiliency, as well as prevention so that health concerns are identified and addressed early.
