Unit 7: Person centred values must influence all aspects of health and social care purely as care work is about people and every person is an individual. Therefore if there was a set guideline it may not work for everyone, so values must be person centred. Care Plans are very important in promoting person centred values. They enable the customer to have choice, the care provider should listen to them as they know themselves best, the care plan is theirs unless the capacity to understand is diminished and then advice must be sought from all other persons/agencies involved in the customers support plan. Another key point in promoting person centred values within a care plan is empowering the customer and knowing they are being listened to.
