Understand how duty of care contributes to safe practice Explain what it means to have a duty of care in own work role.

These values may change over time but they never leave us. When we come into a care setting, these values do not change, we will not become someone different just because our circumstances have changed. These are the things that need to be documented to help those who are now our carers to provide the support that will help us to continue to be the people we were before our admission into care. When a person come into our care home they will be a person who needs our support and not an illness or disease with a body attached. When someone is admitted to the home, see the person and not the problem.

1. Understand the importance of diversity, equality and inclusion. 1.1 Explain what is meant by Diversity Equality Inclusion The importance of diversity in a care setting is to ensure acceptance and respect is present and maintained as each individual is unique. It is essential that all differences such as race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, economic status, age, physical abilities, religious beliefs, political beliefs and any other ideologies are accepted and that any knowledge of a persons individual beliefs/status' are not affecting the work carried out in the work place this also includes treating everyone with the same amount respect as any discrimination made may have severe consequences and could result in them feeling upset and uncomfortable within the work place.

Also I would think it would be very good if a carer would take some advise from a senior carers and talk to them to gain experience and best advice that you can get from a people who are doing a job longer and know what to expect and know the personnel and clients.

My initial response is to say that I would abide by the Fair Housing Act’s rules and regulations and to treat every single person the same as I always have. But more so than that, I do think it also boils down to a person, involved in this industry, what values and ethics they have or were taught with growing up, as we have discussed in previous posts. If greed and/or lack of motivation overpower their common sense, then their values aren’t that strong to begin with. My personal experience both in new home sales and my current job has taught me to NEVER judge anyone in front of me as you never know what he/she has to offer. For instance, a person walking in to our office wearing something or “not looking the part” of a buyer may easily be judged by others simply because of looks.
