Supporting the Individual to have a clean appearance and pleasant environment is good for the Individuals self esteem. Measures are in place to avoid the information being lost or unauthorised and unlawfully processed or damaged to.
As dementia advances the risk assessment plan will need to be reviewed and the care plan may need to change to accommodate the changes within the Individual. We have to know how to handle the personal Information, agreed ways of working, policies and procedures are all legislation frameworks.
If a decision is made under the Mental Capacity Act on behalf of the Individual, the decision must be made for the best interests of the Individual. We should respect privacy where people have personal relationships and sexual relationships.
The Information should be processed fairly and lawfully. We should not assume that all Individuals with dementia are vulnerable; this depends entirely on the stages of dementia.
If the Individual is mentally incapable, informed consent should be given by the family or next of kin. Other problems would be eyesight, make sure they are wearing the correct prescription of glasses. The manager would work towards resolving the complaint in a professional manner so that the employees can move forward and be happy in their work.
The Personal Data should be processed for limited purposes. The manager would explain that in making the complaint it does not jeopardise their employment as they have a right and choice as whether to make a complaint. The Individual will respond better to a person centered approach.
Personal hygiene can be of many aspects, washing, bathing, showering, denture care, oral hygiene, foot care, hair care, grooming, nail care, toilet carecontinence needs, dressing and undressing, laundry and housekeeping. All Individuals with dementia have their own personal Identity they are all unique so learning about their life stories and experiences can be of benefit to the care they receive as the information learnt can be built into their interactions within their care plan needs.
We should ensure that the Individuals personal preferences are respected as well as their choice in how to support them. The safeguarding of the Individual is paramount and we should never ignore potential high risks or dangers to the Individual, and we must work to policies and procedures and agreed ways of working at all times.
We should let the Individual with dementia make own choices and decisions. We have to take into account the rights and choices of the Individual and balance this with the risk and safeguarding of the Individual.
Risk assessments can be very complex as no two assessors will come to the same conclusion regarding the Individual. We have to make sure personal Information is confidential. Information on preferences, choices and decisions and wishes.
We must comply with the Human Rights Act as this gives the Individual the rights for respect, dignity, privacy and a private family life.
I would explain to the Individual and the next of kin that the document is confidential and that it will be dealt with in a professional manner and that the complainant has nothing to worry about regarding the complaint and explain that it is their right of choice to complain.
Legal and Organisational Requirements for Dealing With Complaints We must assume that the Individual with dementia has capacity unless it has been assumed that they lack the capacity to make choices. If we cannot resolve the problem there and then, we must record the information and report it to the manager of the company supplying the service.
Early diagnosis of an Individual will give the Individual the rights to their freedom and this must be respected. Personal Information may be shared with carers who have access to the information regarding the service user. If we were to put everything an Individual did down as a risk the Individual would feel worthless, inadequate, and useless and they would feel that they are a burden on their family.
Dementia Individuals need to be in an environment of comfort and empowerment. Every emotion a normal person feels, the Individual with dementia will feel the same but on a higher scale. The carer may ask the Individual if you could accompany them to the shops or to an appointment etc.
This can be frustrating for the carer however the carer may talk to the Individual in a subtle way and explain that he or she is not here to take over their lives but just here to help support them when they need help and just here to see that the Individual has had their medications.
All the information and choices and preferences will help the Individual and the people supporting the individual prepare for the future. I would work to policies and procedures and agreed ways of working and adhere to professional boundaries. If a carer wanted to make a complaint about another carer they would follow the same procedure in filling out the document and they would take it to the manager.
Also if a service user was to go into a care home the care plan and log sheets would be taken in to the home so the relevant members of staff could read the data and have a better understanding of the service user.
The Personal Information shall not be transferred to another country outside the European Economic Area unless that country ensures an adequate level of protection for the rights and freedoms of data. Communication shows how we respect the Individuals and this will help maintain their dignity and respect.
The information should not be kept longer than intended for. We have to weigh up the risk against the danger this is the key.Unit Enable rights and choices of individuals with dementia whilst minimising risks Key legislation that relates to the fulfilment of rights and choices and also minimises the risk of harm to an individual with dementia is: * Human Rights Act /5(1).
