Fraser whole person care addresses physical, mental, and genetic factors to enhance each aspect of an individual’s health and life.
We work to minimize unhealthy behaviors that can lead to impaired physical health, maximize partnerships with primary care providers to enhance care, and address co-occurring conditions that result from complex conditions that involve intellectual and physical disability, autism, and mental health issues.
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services defines whole person care like this:
“Whole person health involves looking at the whole person—not just separate organs or body systems—and considering multiple factors that promote either health or disease. It means helping and empowering individuals, families, communities, and populations to improve their health in multiple interconnected biological, behavioral, social, and environmental areas. Instead of treating a specific disease, whole person health focuses on restoring health, promoting resilience, and preventing diseases across a lifespan.”
