Activity 5.1c Providing Person centred care or support that is specific to the individual's needs, wishes and preferences will ensure that the individual is always at the centre of their care. Dignity is one of the values included in person centred care. Complete the diagram to identify ways in which you can promote dignity in your day to day work. An example has been provided for you.

Ways I can promote dignity at work:

1. Taking a clients lifestyle choices into consideration when providing and planning care. Also, by respecting their choice of dress, hairstyle etc and attempting to include the client in as many decision making situations as possible.

2.  Ensuring that all their needs are given priority during the care that is provide and that these are protected in a professional and dignified way.

3. When a client is in crisis and/or being physically restrained, ensure their rights and dignity are protected by removing audiences where possible.

4. Ensuring that each individual feels socially included. This could be through interaction with their friends and family as well as attending social clubs, networks and other community groups.




Activity 5.2a Case Study: Badiah is on of the individuals that you care for since last week. She has moved to England from Laos last year. You have noticed that Badiah sometimes only picked her meals without really eating anything. Badiah is wearing a head scarf and you are unsure if this is a fashion item.

Describe why it is important to find out Badiah’s history, preferences, wishes and needs in order to care for her in a person centred-way:

As part of creating a person centred level of care, it would be very important to develop an understanding about Badiah. This would include specific dietary needs, her cultural needs and how she communicates, for example. With this information, a carer would be able to establish why Badiah isn’t eating her meals and understand that this could be due to religious dietary choices. For example, she could be a vegetarian, opt to only eat Halal food or prefer food from her own country of Lagos. With information about her preferences, wishes and needs, it would have been easier for the carer to establish whether the head scarf was a fashion choice or an item worn for religious purposes – such as a hijab worn by Muslim women. If additional preplanning had taken place, the carer would have been better able to support Badiah in a person-centred way and able to ensure her needs were met.
