Also this made Mrs Patel feel that if she didn?t wear a scarf she would be treated differently this made her feel very upset that she was not being accepted because of culture and religious beliefs. She felt that her self-confidence was beginning to go low as she was a young Asian woman and that clients opinions in the day care centre will affect her as they will not want an Asian woman looking after them. This affected Mrs Patel confidence as she used to find it very easy to approach as this has occurred it has affected Mrs Patel?s way of communication as she will not find it very easy to be able to talk to someone because of how she looks and what country she is from.

Conclusion

Because of this none of the staff can communicate with her because Anne has been isolating herself from all the staff and keeping herself to herself.

As a results of the staff being not confidential , other staff are treating him different because they know that he has HIV, which has given Mr Smith low self esteem and now he feeling embarrassed and feels like everyone is judging him. This has caused Mr Smith to isolate him from the rest of the residences at Sugar and Spice day care centre. Kinga Boguszko ...read more.
