Person centred care also means treating residents with dementia with dignity and respect. Listen actively to what the person is expressing Acknowledge what they have expressed Value what they say Deliver care in line with their wishes Have a collaborative approach to care Respecting the individual- Each person living in a care home should have his or her own individual care plan. The care plan is to summarise how staff encourages and maintains the unique strengths of a person with dementia while meeting his or her needs for support, the plan is reviewed at regular intervals. Personal dignity and privacy should be respected at all times. Individual cultural or religious beliefs are also taken into account.
The real value of person centred practice is individuality and what they want i.e. respecting choices. In my work setting which is mainly working with people living with dementia, person centred practice is when the care is focused more on the residents as individual rather than on their illness or the abilities they have lost. Person centred care is critical to providing quality care & support. 1.2 CRITICALLY REVIEW APPROACHES TO PERSON CENTRED CARE Person Centred Practice ensures that the patient is treated with dignity and respect, enabling them to achieve as much independence as possible.
Person-centred care sees patients as equal partners in planning, developing and accessing care to make sure it is most appropriate for their needs. It involves putting patients and their families at the heart of all decisions. Person-centred care aims to be user focused, promote independence and autonomy, provide choice and control and be based on a collaborative team philosophy. It takes into account service users' needs and views and builds relationships with family members. Person-centred care involves: • Compassion, dignity and respect – these are the essential foundation for the greater involvement of people in their own care.
1.1 Describe what is meant by a person-centred approach Person-centred approach is a package of care negotiated with and delivered to the individual requiring support; it takes account of the needs and wishes of that individual. Person-centred approach focuses on the person rather than the illness or abilities they may have lost, for example rather than seeing dementia as the focus is important to see and focus on the person. Therefore, instead of treating the person as a collection of symptoms and behaviours to be controlled, person centred care considers the whole person. The person-centred approach enables care to be delivered to individuals with dementia in ways that respect those individuals values, needs and preferences and which offers them real choice. In terms of developing a successful person-centred approach to care, a working knowledge of Carl Rogers’s growth promoting core skills is essential, which are empathy, honesty, unconditional positive regard which means accepting the individuals without any prejudice and developing rapport which provides the basis for person-centred approach.

CU1667 Understand and implement a Person Centred approach to the care and support of individuals with Dementia. 1.1 A person centred approach means putting the service user at the centre of their care. Ensuring they are treated as individuals and are supported to be as independent as possible, making sure you give individuals all the support they may need in order to make choices in all aspects of their care. Ensuring at all times that the service user is treated with dignity and respect. 1.2 Using a person centred approach enables individuals with Dementia to be involved in their own care and support by allowing and encouraging them to make their own choices.
This could be from themselves or others so all tasks needs to be assessed prior to undertaking them to ensure the risks are reduced to the minimum level and that they receive the appropriate level of support. Aiii The duty of care is a guideline that is held within the care setting to ensure the care staff are aware of their responsibilities and know what is expected of them whilst they are promoting the well being of the individuals being supported. These guidelines are in place to protect individuals within the care setting whether it is a person living within the care setting or the support staff working within the organisation. Aiv Duty of care contributes to the safeguarding of individuals because it sets out the standards required to provide appropriate levels of care within the setting so that no harm comes to either the individual living within the setting or the staff supporting them e.g. complaints or accusations.
UNDERSTAND PERSON-CENTRED APPROACHES IN ADULT SOCIAL CARE SETTINGS UNDERSTAND PERSON-CENTRED APPROACHES IN ADULT SOCIAL CARE SETTINGS 1.1 DESCRIBE PERSON CENTRED APPROACHES Person-centred is about providing care and support that is centred or focused on the individual and their needs. We are all individual and just because two people might have the same medical condition, for example, Dementia, it doesn’t mean that they require the same care and support. You will need to develop a clear understanding about the individuals you are working with. This includes their needs, their culture, their means of communication, their likes and dislikes, their family and other professionals’ involvement so you can promote and provide person centred care and support. There are eight person centred values that support person-centred care and support.
Kimberley Howell DEM 304 Enable rights and choices of individuals with dementia whilst minimising risks 1) Understand key legislation and agreed ways of working that support the fulfilment of rights and choices of individuals with dementia while minimising risk of harm. 1.1) Explain the impact of key legislation that relates to fulfilment of rights and choices and the minimising of risk of harm for an individual with dementia. Key legislation is put into place to ensure that individuals with dementia are treated equally, fairly and that they come to no harm. Ensuring they are treated with dignity and respect, and as they were before they had dementia. Key legislation such as; The disability discrimination act 1995 - An Act to make it unlawful to discriminate against disabled persons in connection with employment, the provision of goods, facilities and services or the disposal or management of premises; to make provision about the employment of disabled persons; and to establish a National Disability Council.
I am expected to ensure that all patients are treated fairly and with dignity and respect, regardless of age, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation and diagnosis, and always act in the best interests of the individual whilst allowing them to be as independent as possible. I assist with activities of daily living, giving them choices regarding their care, such as what food they would like to eat or what clothing they would like to wear. Observation skills are very important when taking care of vulnerable adults, such as listening, paying attention to detail, being vigilant and aware of surroundings. Looking for triggers in patients that may lead to aggressive or agitated behaviours. 1.2 Explain how duty of care contributes to the safeguarding or protection of individuals Having a duty means that it is
