In this task I have to assess the impact on the principles and values that support Annie and Michael from the case studies. I am then going to explain the care value base, and then I’m going to explain how the care value base supports Annie and Michael. I am then going to do some research from my course book and other resources to look at the ethical considerations. After I have researched and explained the ethical considerations I am then going to look at the rights and responsibilities of a carer. Then I will start a new paragraph and research some care homes around the UK to see what their aims are to look after residents and lastly I’m going to look at the care standards Act 2000 as this is one of the polices that need to be within care homes to be followed.
Care value base
In health and social care settings the care value base is important as these are based on the rights that every client from any age group is entitled too. Care homes around the world put these principles into practise as well as the legislation.
According to the Annie case study it states that she is woken up with a cup of tea. She was also washed on the commode which is like a toilet based chair. Annie was most likely not to be washed on the commode, I bet she would like to use the bath or a shower with a suitable shower chair in it, again this would be Annie’s right of choice. In the case study it states that the carer had sorted her clothes out, well if the carer talked to Annie whether what she would like to wear as this is acceptable. As far as we know the carer might give Annie a skirt to wear a colour that she doesn’t like for example.
As part of the CVB the carers need to promote and supporting individuals rights to dignity, independence, health and safety. In this section of the CVB it has a list of rights that clients have. These are:
Have freedom from discrimination
