2 Introduction. The health and the social care sector is the most critical and sensitive part of human nature. It is of importance for a health and social care personnel to be adequately taught, trained and equipped adequately for them to be effective to the user of the services. When the care worker is well knowledgeable especially of the specific needs of the service user, then we can say efficiency in service delivery is achieved. In UK laws, regulations and guidance are available to govern and guide both the care worker and the service user. It is mandatory for the care worker to understand the specific physical and mental needs of the user, for the right service to be dispensed. The care user is also entitled to protection from any injury be it internal or external by the worker. Task 1. L01 Understand Perceptions of health, disability, illness and behavior. 1.1 Analyze Concepts of health, disability, illness and behavior in relation to users of health and social care services. In a research by World Health Organization, the concept is on health and social care is very much popular and wide especially in the UK. Health can be defined as a feeling or a state that distance you from normal functional of your
3 body system. When a person feels unwell or he is in that state he/she will be seeking the services of a health and social care worker. The critical and sensitive nature of a person’s health requires that the workers and the stuff in the field of health are properly trained. (Costa et al. 2016). Disability is a common issue among care users. Disability is a physical incapacity that makes one unable to make use of some of his/her body part. Most types of disabilities however are in a physical state. It is a condition that does not allow a person to act normally and also somehow restrict their movements. According to (Schneider, 2009), illness is a period where is somebody has a sickness that impacts his body and mind. Generally health issues is a state at which a person is incapacitated to act normally and from mostly a psychological point of view. Health affects the mind and the body. The behavior of a person is a situation where by a certain reaction is portrayed to a situation at that point in time. Certain devices impacts somebody’s behavior in that if not well corrected they are likely to cause up errors in a person’s life (Adam, 2003). In a social care concept, the effect of a behavior can serve as an examining tool to determine the major cause of the impact. The providers of the care services can therefore can make use of various strategies and behaviors to come up with a solution for the care user. (Mertens, 2013).
