Prepare materials, giving a comprehensive account, to show how care workers behaviour could reflect their own views and prejudice when providing care for Sanjit and Manjella. Consider the prejudices and the effects of prejudice relating to: * Culture * Religion * Education * Family * Environment * Finances Culture * Culture is the way of life of a particular society or group of people, including patterns of thought, beliefs, behaviour, customs, traditions, rituals, dress, and language, as well as art, music, and literature. * Culture is a shared pattern of belief, feeling and adaptation, which people carry in their minds. * Culture is an organized group of ideas, habits and conditioned responding shared by members of a society. Culture is shared values and beliefs in a given group. * People in every culture are raised with a set of values, beliefs, and attitudes. Some are held deeply, and in many cases, they have never been questioned. Others may be negotiable or debatable. But all affect how a person receives a new message.

It develops in us a perspective of looking at life. It helps us build opinions and have points of view on everything in life. People debate over the subject of whether education is the only thing that gives knowledge.

It's impossible to get through life without earning and spending money - and nobody is going to care about your finances as much as you are, so the smart thing to do is learn about it so you can protect yourself from scammers, bad investments and rip-off artists.

After making payments for 3 years, he wanted to pay off the loan early to save on interest cost. The amount he still owed was almost $2,000. How could that be? They had made way more than half the payments but still owed almost the entire amount they borrowed! It was because the loan was set up in such a way to penalize anyone who wanted to pay it off early. He got screwed because they didn't understand the loan documents, and just assumed if they paid it off early they would save some money. In Majella residential home, one of the reasons why the service users and the care workers didn't like Majella because she was from a poor country and she was very poor herself, for her being poor didn't mean they treat her unfairly, it is against the law, all humans should be treated fairly with no injustice. ?? ?? ?? ?? ...read more.
