Introduction

Introduction For this assignment I need to have two interactions with my clients. But before that I am going to get permission from the supervisor and the clients for doing my interactions. I have chosen to do a group interaction, which are five people in a group and one to one interaction. The activity that I have chosen for one to one interaction is making gift cards and for group interaction is a cross word puzzle to make words with letters. My interaction will take place in a day care centre. My clients are elderly people age 65 plus. Before I do my interactions I am going to give witness statements to one of the staff to write comment on my interactions. The environment of my work placement is been set up by having about 15 tables in the main hall and having 6 chairs around each table. In the corner of the main hall is a big kitchen. The lightening is perfect because is not to dark or to light. My one to one interaction is taking place in the craft room. The reasons that I am doing my interaction in the craft room are because there is not too much noise in the craft room. There is more space to do my interaction and also there are more facilities in the craft room to do my interaction. ...read more.

Stereotyping means when someone makes assumptions about other people based on their age, sex, race, nationality or sexuality. Prejudice means liking or disliking someone and providing different care (better or worse) because they are of the particular group e.g. black people. Fostering people's rights and responsibilities means to support the rights of a client to choose their own lifestyle and help them to accept their responsibilities. Rights and responsibilities are often laid down in legislation, codes of practice and policy documents. A carer need to make sure that the clients are aware of their rights and responsibilities in care settings. Clients have the right to not to be discriminated against, confidentiality and their own beliefs and values. The clients have the responsibility to not discriminated against others, respect the confidentiality of others and do not harm others. Maintaining confidentiality of information means any information about the clients must be private and confidential whether is verbal, written or electronic (on a computer). Maintaining confidentiality of information is an important part of caring. ...read more.
