It's essential for individuals who want a career within this setting, to have great knowledge and understanding of the safeguarding of individuals. Reflective account non-judgement support. Summayah is a Muslim who is very confident of her beliefs; Summayah believes it has a great impact on her everyday life. She has recently moved into a care home however she finds it very challenging to adjust to the settings of the care home as she has come across many situations where she feels her religion is not important.

I also explained that I have issues that make things difficult for me at times but I don't allow it to discourage me any longer because we are not perfect.
