Person centre values are a holistic approach and should involve not only the physical needs of the individual but the spiritual, emotional and social needs as well. Also finding out any goals and expectations of the individual. These values should underpin all work in the health and social care sector when they are followed as they should be then all individuals should be able to feel that, and health and social workers should ensure that: all individuals are treated with dignity and respect the individual is supported in accessing their rights the individual is treated as an individual the individual is supported to exercise choice ensure that the individual has privacy when they want it support the individual to be as independent as possible Person centred values provide a foundation on which we can base and build our practice.

In the interest of individuals who are receiving care, it enables them to be treated with respect and dignity, involving their own needs beliefs and identities, as well as to be supported to remain independent as much as possible. Person centred values also involve individuals to be supported to access their rights, as well as providing anti-discrimination practices together with promoting equal opportunities for individuals, and presenting choices and safety. Ultimately, it is all about diverse people who are involved in health and social care work, so therefore, the values that influences care must be person centred.
INTRODUCTION TO DUTY OF CARE IN HEALTH, SOCIAL CARE 1.1 As a care worker, you have a legal obligation to adopt a ‘duty of care’ approach towards the people within your service. You are required to work in the best interests of the people using the service which includes maintaining their safety and wellbeing. 1.2 It is important to carry out duties that are in own job description and that you are competent. It is also necessary to regularly update own knowledge and skills in order to uphold and provide the care standards that are in accordance with the codes of practice of the care setting.

If l let life get me off course I am going to have a hard time getting focused and getting back on track so it is best for me and others to avoid it before it happens. Also having a good self-image will help me understand my self even more. If I know what is going on inside the world and out, it will help me to stay on course and on a good road to success. Another thing would be to know how to understand my tolerance for risk and how to push past barriers and other obstacles that will be in my path to success.
