Amy Thompson Unit 14 1.1 The person centred approach is keeping the individual present and actively participating in the types of care that they would wish to receive including when and how. It involves all aspects of that person including beliefs, dignity, rights, choice, privacy, respect and independence. 1.2 The person centred values must influence all aspects of social care work. It also give a further advantage to the care staff as they are more aware of the needs and types of care that are expected by the resident. For example if the resident doesn’t wish to be washed by a male member of staff this should influence all areas of that persons care.
All staff should follow the philosophy of person centred care as it aims to bring out the best in people with dementia. 1.2 Describe how a person centred approach enables individuals with dementia to be involved in their own care and support. A person centred approach enables individuals with dementia to be involved in the care and support that they receive. It looks at each person as an individual and is centred on the individuals’ own preferences, wishes, needs and values. It enables the individuals to choose
This is based around each individual and their careplan so the care i give is individual to them. I assist with personal hygiene, toileting and administer medication. As much as i enjoy assisting clients i always encourage them to be as independent as possible by letting them plan their day and making own choices. Also providing the clients with a welcoming and friendly environment will make all the difference to the person settling in. This provides stability for them and a sense of belonging.
Encouraging people to make their own decisions promotes self esteem and independence. Maintaining dignity can help a person feel secure in their environment and helps build trust with support staff The individuals we support need to know how we maintain their personal records and details, they can feel secure knowing we old their details in confidence, they also need to know in what circumstances we may share information with others. Knowing how the person communicates is key, having a clear guide to determine how they like to be asked questions and how they indicate answers by verbal/non verbal means. Having a clear guide to how the person likes their personal care indicating their preferences and routine. Ensuring they are comfortable with the staff and enabling them to choose how they are supported.
It influences social care work, because when we are caring for someone we have to be able to recognise that everybody is different and we must not impose our preferences to them. The personal beliefs should be respected and encouraged. Choice We need to be aware that each service user has the right to make choices and also how they can benefit from this. It is important both physically and mentally for a service user to make choices each day. It has an influence on social care work, because we need to make sure that we are communicating well, and listening to the individual's wishes and preferences, and we need to remember not to dothings without discussing it with service user.
Every person is unique and is individual so in order to promote equality it is important to treat everyone fairly. Each person has their own needs, wishes and preferences so it is imperative that these are respected. “Diversity” is another way of explaining “differences” and it’s important for us to realise that although often people may have many things in common with each other, they can also at the same time be very different and unique in many ways. We need to understand and recognize those differences, moreso than just simply tolerate them, so that we can embrace and value those people which will in itself produce a more conducive environment for all. The result of this should lead to “inclusion” which is about creating a sense of belonging, feeling included, feeling respected and valued, even though it may be that that person lacks some advantages.
Person-centred values must apply at all times, it’s about the individuals and what they want. All individuals have their own minds and can make their own choices. They need to have their own independence and are all different in their own ways and we have to respect this. We must respect their dignity and privacy as it is the individual’s right to be treated fairly at all times throughout no matter what. We must treat every individual the same regardless of any medical conditions, religions, culture and life style and deserves the same care and respect.
Thinking in positive ways not only makes me feel better about situations, but I know it also helps other people dealing with the situation too. So if people ever need help with something I might be the person they will like to come too. All in all I am glad I took the survey and got this little outlook on my strengths. I do believe they fit me and I will use them to better prepare for my
