CU1676- Facilitate Person-Centred Assessment. The Holistic approach is important in going forward the way service users are assessed and implementing the planning for an individual support package. The individual is looked at in every aspect. This helps in finding the needs of the individual more clearly and also highlights any additional areas that may need to be examined/discussed further. With the Holistic approach it means to look at the whole person.
For example an individual will be asked which people are important to them family and friends will form a circle of support for the individual, this will help to enable an individual feel part of the process. There should be regular reviews where the individual will be part of the process and have creative input into any changes that need to be made to the circle of support, at all times it is very important to take into account an individual’s feelings and aspirations. It is also important to ensure the safeguarding of the individual at all times. 1.2 Explain the benefits of using person-centred thinking with individuals The benefits of using person-centred thinking with individuals are the individual is always at the centre of the process. The individual will be supported in making informed choices for example being involved in the community by attending activities/College.
Individuals also communicate to express their needs and preferences and to ensure they are met. Discussing the options and choices available to the individual, allows them an informed choice with regards to their care. Communication is all about expressing needs, to share ideas and information, to reassure, to express feelings, to building relationships, socialise, to ask questions and to share experiences. 1.2 An explanation of how communication affects relationships in the work setting Communication is vital to bring about positive relationships at work. When working in a team environment, you need to be a team player and offer information and knowledge whenever possible, get along with several members of staff and show respect.
Person-Centred Care is an approach to care that respects and values the uniqueness of the individual, and seeks to maintain, even restore, their individuality. We do this by creating an environment that promotes personal worth and uniqueness, social confidence, respect, truthfulness, independence, engagement and hope 1.2 It is important to work in a way that embeds person centred values because, I believe that the person centred values is a process of continual learning and listening, acting in alliance with their family and friends and focusing on what is really important to someone today and in the future. It is important so we may able to assist people in saying what is important and we could help them to take control of their lives. 2.1The more you know the more you are capable of assisting.

We all also need to do develop and maintain positive working relationships with colleagues and professionals who have contact with the service that you are a part of. We need communicate so we can share information with people who are using the services so they can provide and receive information. People who are using the service need to communication as they need to express the way that they are feeling, if they have any thoughts and ideas they will be able to express that, we need to maintain good working relationships with our colleagues as we will needs to share and receive information with them and knowing what support is needed if there is any. A client who is using the service will need to be able to communicate somehow to express if there is anything wrong with them or another client who is using the service. If there is a client who attends a day centre and a incident has happened at home the day centre will need to be informed of this.

Respect – recognising and valuing the individuals sense of worth and importance to others. Partnership – working with others to achieving the best outcomes possible. 1.2 – The care that is carried out on a daily basis should always be centred around the person that is being cared for. Person centred approaches are about sharing power, so the emphasis is on ‘doing things with’ the individual. This means including the individual in decision making.
If I work as part of a team, I will need to work alongside colleagues and share a workload. If there are good relationships, then working becomes easier because people will co-operate and trust develops. The key relationships are with the people you support. Your skills in building a relationship will be an important part of ensuring that the identified outcomes are met. People who have decide that they want some support in their lives need to be sure that they are working with someone who is honest and trustworthy, can keep confidences and is committed to working in their best interest.
People have choices and encouraging them to make informed choices gives confidence to make the right decisions for them. Showing understanding to a person within the service, ask questions, get involved, give positive responses, this also gives confidence and will encourage a person to feel assured about doing things for themselves which has a feel good factor. Bxi Identify two ways of making sure an individual’s physical environment promotes their well-being Living in an environment that is safe and secure, that have staff who promote independence along with varied physical activities, all work towards a service user feeling good about themselves, a feeling of well-being. SU’s can make choices about what they wish to do with their time, doing things they enjoy, things that stimulate their mind and body all promote this and will make them feel good
By recognising the centrality of the individual, we empower them and boost their confidence. We will then also able to identify the best ways to help the individual maintain their independence while promoting health and well-being. We will also be able to identify where further help is required and help the individual to use their strengths and abilities for their own benefit. Recognising strengths and abilities also helps build confidence to try new things and to challenge their own disabilities. Person-centred care sees patients as equal partners in planning, developing and accessing care to make sure it is most appropriate for their needs.
