Unit 51: Support Independance in the tasks of daily living 1.Understanding principles for supporting independance in the tasks of daily living 1.1 Explain how individiuals can benefit from being as independance as possible in the tasks of daily living. Being independent gives someone a feeling of control over their life.People feel more comfortable, safe and reassured when they can dothings for themselves and this also helps to uphold their self-esteem. Independence can help people to achieve their life goals. Holding on to independence about decisions that are made regarding ourselves as well as where and how we live can make us feel that we are positively contributing to society. 1.2 Explain how active pariticipation promotes independance in the tasks of daily living.
Another factor is that the individual is able to maintain a little more control over daily routine, which is important as this leaves the individual feeling cared for and listened to. Also the individuals are surrounded by their own possessions with fond memories which make them feel more secure. Also it makes them feel more relaxed about having care in their own home as they are not being put in an unusual environment. 2. • Local Authorities - The welfare and protection of vulnerable adults is the corporate responsibility of each and every local authority working in partnership with other public agencies, the voluntary sector and service users and contracted services.
1.2 Explain why it is important to work in a way that embeds person centred values The values that underpin our work have an impact on our day to day work. By taking into account the person-centred values while providing support like bathing, dressing, personal hygiene, shopping and general domestic tasks will be done better by providing a service that suit’s the service users not us or the system. It is vital for us to work using methods to establish the needs and wishes of the individual. This will also mean that individuals will feel empowered and in control of their lives, be more confident about making decisions will feel valued and respected. 1.3 Explain why risk-taking can be part of a person centred approach Person centred planning puts individuals at the centre of everything, it looks at what people can do and identify what they would like to achieve.
You need to incorporate a balanced diet and exercise in your lifestyle. When you are taking care of yourself you have a positive energy that keeps you motivated. Not having a healthy life could cause mental health problems that could lead to depression, weight gain and poor health conditions. You should interact with others around you and live a social life. You need to express yourself rather than bottle up your emotions.

The advantages of active support would be that indiviuals needs would be met by individuality and individuals would be encouraged to be more independent and to be the best they are able to be. 1.2 Practical changes that could be made within a service to promote an individual's independence is encourage them to make some minor decisions for themselves for example choosing between two sets of clohes to wear instead of telling individuals what they are wearing and to do this as much as practically possible. Another example being with personal care and washing and encouraging individuals to participate in the personal care on a dialy basis, this will improve daily living skills and also make individuals less dependent on somebody else.

Additionally, developing self-awareness helps the client to rediscover meaning in life. Some clients will, however, need a more structured therapy than is typical in a humanistic person-centered approach. One of the strengths of using a humanistic/person-centered approach when working with clients is the warmth and caring of the relationship that (hopefully) develops between counsellor and client. The counsellors active listening and full emotional availability will provide them with a healing environment within which they can explore their emotional experiences safely and without judgment. Central to the therapist's role in client-centred therapy is respecting the clients values as well as maintaining a therapeutic nonjudgmental attitude.
If I was to do personal centred care then this would definitely reduce the risk of abuse purely because I would have a greater understanding and knowledge of the individual’s preferences and know what they like and dislike. Active participation is also very important in my work place, this enables that the service users are keeping fit and mobile but also builds confidence. By promoting active participation this can reduce abuse as the individual engages positively by actively participating is area of their life, such as in personal care, the scope for abuse by others is reduced. Promoting choices and rights is empowerment and about taking control of your life even if this is in a small ways, by including a resident in their care it allows them to still be an individual to have rights and wishes recognised even if they do not verbally contribute to be included is good practise. 4.2 It’s essential to have an accessible complaint procedure as it reduces the chances or abuse occurring, I believe that this is because it’s made easy to report any forms of abuse by anybody and everybody.
