This means looking at the person as an individual with strengths, preferences and aspirations and putting them at the centre of the process of identifying their needs and making choices about how and when they are supported to live their lives. Part 1 – 2 The importance of recognising the centrality of an individual The importance of recognising the centrality of the individual is key to helping boost the person´s confidence and self-esteem.

Person-centred thinking is separating what is important to from, what is important for The people they support and finding a balance between them, person-centred planning reflects upon a person’s capacities, what is important to a person (now and for the future) and specifies the support they require to make a valued contribution to their community. Services are delivered in the context of the life a person chooses and not about slotting people into “gaps”. 1.2 what is important to the person - what matters to them, from their perspective clearly identifies the supports that the person requires - what is important for them to stay healthy and safe, and it identifies what needs to stay the same or be enhanced in the person’s life, and what needs to change (in order that the person has more of what is important to them in their life).

Those who first described the processes were responding to the effects that 'services' can have on people's lives.

Duty of care is synonymous to how care work is adopted according to the best interests of the individual, Therefore you should carry out duty’s in which you are competent and in own job description and if you have the inability to do specific tasks you are well within your grounds to decline certain tasks, which brings me on to another key feature of duty of care which is being accountable for own descions and actions; following certain procedures in all aspects of work including the approptie use of resources and equipment. Furthermore it is paramount that you provide standards of care in line of codes of practice of the settings/service as well as in line with the underpinning values of adult social care the respect of the individual should be the predominant focal point which can be displayed by respecting their rights to preservation of dignity, safeguarding; the need to observe confidentiality; the need to be observant; the importance of induction and regular updating of your own individual skills and knowledge base.
