Activity Explain how you would determine and confirm the client’s level of participation in meeting their own personal care needs? We can gauge and assess the client’s level of participation in meeting their personal care needs by: Assessing their ability to contribute towards decisions Observing their level of ability and independence Assessing whether they are aware of their own needs Offering them opportunities to participate Ensuring that they understand situations wherever possible. Clients should be offered opportunities to get involved with their care and decisions wherever possible; determining their level of participation and ability will help you to help them make plans for their futures and to assess and prepare for their future needs. Activity 2C Estimated Time 30 Minutes Objective To provide you with an opportunity to provide the person with information to assist them in meeting their own personal support needs. Activity Identify three different types of information a client may need to help them meet their own care needs. Where would you source each from? In order to understand their conditions and make the best decisions for themselves, clients need access to information about their care needs and health requirements. This can enable them to prepare for the future and feel more comfortable and confident about any changes they should expect. Information may include: Literature from the doctor Discussions with doctors and other health professionals Counselling and mentoring Leaflets and such. Where we have identified that a client would benefit from accessing some information, we should assist them. This may involve sourcing the information for them, such as by: Downloading information Sourcing information, such as pamphlets and books Arranging meetings Explaining things to them.

P a g e | 17 Activity 3A Estimated Time 30 Minutes Objective To provide you with an opportunity to safely prepare for each task and adjust any equipment, aids and appliances. Activity Identify a process, aid or appliance that could be used when caring for a client. List the safe-use specifications and for each, suggest a negative consequence of failing to use the equipment safely. There are many aids, processes, appliances and pieces of equipment available to use when caring for clients. These may: Need specialist training or qualification to use/do Be required for a particular task Not be necessary, but make a task easier Be client-operated Be carer-operated. In any case, anyone using these items or methods needs to be properly trained in using them, including what to do if things go wrong. Where we are using these or a client is using them, we need to understand the process or equipment is being used correctly and safely; failure to ensure this can result in: Breakage of the equipment Injury to the client and/or the care provider Infection The discomfort of the client Failure of the method used.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
