207 Task B B1 Two ways of finding out about the history, preferences, wishes and needs of an individual using our service are : 1. Ask the individual about themselves and how they would like to receive their care. For example ensuring that people are fully involved in any decision that affects their care, including personal decisions (such as what to eat, what to wear and what time to go to bed), 2. If the individual does not have capacity then ask the family about their history the routines they used to keep and preferences or the people who have done the assessment about what they may need in their care package. For example if they used have breakfast a nine in the morning because they liked to lay in till then, they may wish to do this still but cant communicate that so by finding out habits from the family you have a better chance of fulfilling their wishes.
Individuality: Assumptions should never be made about an individual. They should never have to fit in with you or your employer. Individuals should be allowed and supported to make their own choices. Care and support needs should be tailored to suit each individual. This shows respect by preserving the individual’s dignity and individuality.
Unit 2 The person centred approach to the care and support of individuals with dementia. 1.1 Describe what is meant by a person centred approach. Person centred approach is the person is being cared for rather than focusing on the disease. To try and understand the behaviours of the individual and how to respond to these also.

They will evaluate the amount of proteins, vitamin and fibres in each menu item and makes recommendations to the dietary director. He also plays a role
Person-centred approaches involve the individual being the centre of their care and support plan, enabling them to retain some control over their lives. Person-centred values enable individuals to live their own lives and not just receive a service. They are about focusing on the individual person’s needs and not the tasks that need completing. Consent in adult social care Consent is giving permission to do something. In adult social care, this usually means that an individual gives consent to receive care or treatment, or to take part in an activity.
Unit 207 – Understand personal centred approaches in adult social care settings 1.1Define person centred values - This is to ensure that an individual is at the centre of planning and support. Also upholding and promoting individuality, choice, dignity, privacy, rights, respect and independence and partnership. 1.2Explain why it is important to work in a way that embeds person centred values - It is important that we work in this way in order to promote individuality which this allows individuals to make informed decisions and choices as well as understanding the consequences also possible risks of such decisions and choices that may well relate to their own health and wellbeing. We must do this within the appreciation of rights within the care value base. We can uphold this by empowering individuals to maintain their own independence.
Personalisation can promote independence, dignity and respect. By allowing a service user to make choices about their care and support or about the clothes they wear, personal items they buy or the food choice we are promoting independence and dignity and we are also respecting the person’s right to make their own choices. This has a knock on effect and means that the individual can lead as normal life as possible while giving them the support they need in a care setting
Whilst respecting the individuals diversity cultures and values. Understand how to implement a person – centred approach in an adult social care setting. Describe how to find out the history, preferences, wishes and needs of an individual We could find out such information relating to an individual by working in a way that puts the individual at the centre of any planning and support, we can do this be communicating with them to find out about their history, preferences and wishes. It is important that we appear and work in a non – judgemental way in order to eliminate any prejudices and / or personal feelings as to not discriminate in any way against the individual. By promoting independence and autonomy, we can also ensure equality and inclusive practice; we can do this by actively encouraging and thus empowering individuals to use their strengths and potentials.

1.2 EXPLAIN HOW COMMUNICATION AFFECTS RELATIONSHIPS IN AN ADULT SOCIAL CARE SETTING When we look at communication in social care and what it affects, we probably need to look in 2 areas. The first is the people we support and the communication we share with them, if we consider are job role it is vital communication is clear and made simple on many occasions because this can help establish trust and confidence from those we support, it helps individuals understand what is happening and their need to be understood. The second area is those we work with, using effective communication is important so that continual needs are supported and that we keep a clear idea of what has happened and what we need to do. The passing of information can only be done through communication. We keep a recorded trail of communication in many areas of social care, but even the communication that is not recorded is vital to be clear and understood.
