D1- In this task I will analyse how communication assists service users and other key people in the Health and Social care setting. In the health and social care setting communication takes place not only between service users/patients and workers, but also between relatives and friends. Without communication nothing would get done, no information would be passed on. Communication take place to inform, to support, educate, give and receive instruction, keep records, liaise and coordinate. All these communications can assist any or all of the service users and key people in the health or social care settings. Everyone passes through the health and social care setting at one point in their life whether they young children's, sick adults or elderly person needing care. Personalities, cultures, technology, art and science all have a part to play in the role of communication.

In my case I know that in both of my interaction the clients were able to send me back messages which mean that they have in fact receive my messages this is why the communication was done perfectly. At least but not last another factor that influenced my interactions was personal space, I personally think that when I having a conversation between people everyone should a personal space in which they don't feel like they are being violated. Personal space is a key to have a great communication and also be able to talk freely and confidently. In my interaction they were at least about a good 4 inch in space between the clients and me, I didn't want to make anyone uncomfortable and I didn't want anyone to do the same to me. I also didn't want to seat far away in order to make they feel like I wasn't interested in what they are saying. ?? ?? ?? ??
