Privacy and dignity are fundamental values in care and support services. Understanding and implementing these values are crucial for providing respectful and individualised care.

Understanding Privacy and Dignity

Privacy involves giving individuals space when needed, while dignity is about valuing each person, respecting their choices, decisions, and ensuring compassionate care.

  • Respecting individual views, choices, and decisions.
  • Avoiding assumptions about personal preferences.
  • Communicating directly with the individual whenever possible.

Safeguarding and Personalised Care

Knowing each individual's background, preferences, likes, and dislikes is essential for providing personalised care that prioritises their well-being and autonomy.

Personalised and Respectful Care

Personalised care focuses on the individual at the centre of their care, promoting independence and respecting privacy and dignity to reduce the risk of degrading or harmful treatment.
